Apologies

When we upgraded the forum software this spring, an unintended permission was given to "announce a topic" In the sponsor news area. Just a click on an option resulted in the forum sending a mass email. I apologize for this oversight, that I didn't even know existed.

The permissions for this function has been changed and no more unintended emails from the Forestry Forum will be sent.

And this is the sort of thing that results when an email is sent you don't know about:

Jeff,

   Thanks for the heads up. So if I have not received a message yet I should not expect one. If this is the worst thing that will happen to me today it has been a good day.

   Remember the old saying "Eat a worm first thing every day and probably nothing worse will happen to you all day." ;D

   Thanks for taking care of us.

Received it today but wasn't bothered.  Delete is made for emails I don't find interesting.  

No problem on my part, but thanks for the explanation.

I didn't get one so now I feel unloved. Is it because I'm Canadian, you can tell me, the worst I will do is apologise.

All is well it was in spam. Actually I thought it was a well written email, my congratulations to Baker for having access to someone who can get me to read a sales pitch to the end.

So I get an email this morning from someone that joined the forum years ago that visits but doesn't post very often. They wanted to know why I was giving emails out.
SO  just to be clear,  No emails were given to anyone.  This is what happened.  

Somewhere along the line, and I am guessing it was when we migrated to the new server and the forum software was upgraded, a permission was added for board moderators. When you create a topic, there is a link for additional options beneath the post box where you can select different things like notifications and such. There was an added option there for board moderators that said "Announce Topic". If that was ticked, as it turns out, it sends the topic by email to the entire forestry forum membership via the forestry forum server when you post the topic.  I highly doubt the topic poster even knew what it was when they ticked it because I didn't even know.  So, in short, no email addresses were given out to anyone.

Good to hear. I was a little worried that this was the start of a new "thing" on FF.

While technology is amazing and so useful for a mirad of applications, it has gotten me into trouble on several occasions as well and has annoyed me with auto correct and the "bots" getting my contact  list.  Was not popular for quite a while with alot of friends....GRRRRRRRR
