Missing line breaks in notification emails

Recommended Posts

I hadn't noticed this issue until just now, but it seems to have been happening since 2016 from what I can see.

 

If the content of a log contains line breaks (ie. new lines/returns), those line breaks are omitted in notification emails. For example, if someone logged this on the cache listing:

Quote

I found the cache.

 

TFTC

 

Cacher123

 

...what I would get in the email is:

Quote

I found the cache. TFTC Cacher123

 

It isn't a big issue, but it does affect the readability of some logs when the logger intentionally used line breaks to make their log more readable. It also gives the CO/watcher a false impression of the logger by running things together in a seemingly-sloppy/lazy fashion.

I have this same issue also when someone is contacting me by email from geocaching.com profile page. All line breaks missing and it is difficult to read. It is easy to verify from the email source code that there is nothing left from line breaks.

Yes, almost all my logs run into multiple paragraphs and likewise for many of the logs on my hides, so when I get a notification email I usually click on the link to go to the cache page and read it there rather than in the body of the email.

 

Edit to add: it seems to have changed around August 2016.
