SUBMITTED (32229) - [FEATURE] Name of Cache Owner in Notification E-Mail

Recommended Posts

I would like to see the CO's name and a link to the CO's profile. There is a link to the reviewer's profile, which is basically useless. However, I'd like to see who is hiding the cache without having to open the link.

Thank you, Pup Patrol, for helping to remind people the guidelines for posting in this forum.

 

I've added a story for this change to our internal database. The notification system is built around logs posted to the cache page, and in this case it keys off the "publish" log, which is of course posted via the reviewer account. The system would need to be specially cased for this notification type so that it includes the cache owner name in place of the account owning the trigger log.

Hi there,

 

whenever there's a new cache around, I set up a premium member rule that sends me a notification e-mail that looks like this:

Is there any way to put the name of the cache owner in this message as well?

 

Thank you!

I'll add my vote for this suggestion. I understand why the link to the reviewer's profile is included, but more useful, to me anyway, would be at least a reference to the cache owner's name, for example:

Has this request taken into consideration? Haven't seen any reply for over 3 months now.

 

Thank you &
