Activity Forums Letters to the COW Team Site-Wide Unsubscribe at Creative COW

  • Site-Wide Unsubscribe at Creative COW

    Posted by Brie Clayton on August 23, 2022 at 1:56 pm

    Hello folks!

    This is a warning that Creative COW will be unsubscribing every profile from the forums to which you have subscribed. Once the unsubscribe sweep is complete, please re-subscribe to the forums that you still want to be notified from.

    Creative COW has been collecting forum subscriptions for 17 years now, and as individual emails associated with older profiles drop into disuse, we are finding that our database is tasked with the overwhelming task of sending thousands of emails to non-responsive inboxes.

    The email rejections have resulted in a backlog that at times creates such a jam, no automatic emails are able to be sent at all. This has resulted in a few innocent COW users unable to retrieve passwords and other annoying issues that we would like to fix.

    The solution is to unsubscribe the entire site, and allow current users to re-subscribe to the forums that still interest them.

    We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes, but ultimately this will streamline the function of Creative COW for everyone!

    I will post again once the the mass un-subscription is complete. Thank you, all!

    As a follow up to this post, today Creative COW has made a site-wide unsubscribe to every user’s profile.

    You’ve been completely unsubscribed from every forum and discussion at this time, and Creative COW encourages you to seek out and resubscribe to the forums and threads that you would still like to receive notifications from.

    We apologize for any frustration this may cause in following your favorite topics and conversations. However, over the years the sheer amount of forgotten subscriptions had made such an impact on our database, it became necessary to put a reset into effect. By clearing the site of hundreds of thousands of old subscriptions, Creative COW will be able to function in a higher capacity, and be more useful for our users moving forward.

    Thank you!
