    Who the hell sends out automated emails from a forum of this nature into people's email inboxes? I registered here ages ago to help out others, and I didn't get any emails from here until today for some reason saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

    Guess what you moron? Now my friends think I'm suicidal, and are urging me to seek help. Neither does it help when the fucking tag-line in the email subject is:

    "Suicide Forum - A support forum for people in crisis"

    Looks great doesn't it?

    Shit eaters.

    Piss off.

    the only retard here is you...why not tell your friends what you just told us instead of coming on here and make drama...and by the way this message should have been sent to the administrator...which I'm sure can be find on the list...if you were bright you would have found that out by searching a bit...I agree with bambi...thank god you're not here anymore...

    I believe there is the facility to opt out of recieving communication from this site....just like every other site on the internet. Did you read the instructions to the site before you joined or started posting???

    But on a similar note, the op does have a point. I like recieving emails from this site but the email subjects do stand out. I had my inbox open the other day and a friend came up behind me and i hope to god they didnt see the would suicide on the screen. Would it be possible to get Suicide Forum changed to SF maybe???

    I agree with NoGood that would be a great idea. There is really no reason to have that on there.

    Hey does the OP realize that we all have the option to send him happy birthday emails from the site? Seems simple enough change the options rather than bash SF..

    Thanks for your charming comments. 'The retarded admin' that you speak of, is actually an automated e-mailing system - you said that yourself in fact.

    If you turn your birthday display off in your profile, I believe that the e-mail won't be sent to you any longer. You can turn off all e-mails from SF in your profile too - look under 'Edit Options' and untick 'Receive e-mail by Administrators'. Alternatively, you could always set up a message filter (if you're on Hotmail, for example) where any messages from here go into a specific folder and not your main inbox.

    As for the Sender Name, I believe the only way to get it changed would be to change the name of the forum... The last we spoke of doing this, Robin was reluctant to do so, as it 'caught' so many folks - I think it was one of the first few of the large number of hits that were displayed when 'suicide' was typed into Google.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Joe,

    It was just the subject in the email titles that i was referring to rather than the actual site title. Ill look into a filter for sf emails. :)

    I see ... I think that it's still tied in with the site name, but I'll see if any of the other staff know about it and get back to you.

    Sorry to hear about that. It's nice to know atleast that you have friends that will try to help you in the right direction instead of just dismissing it and you.
    And why not be honest with them and tell them that you registered here to offer some advice and help for people in need.
    Sometimes unwanted things happen, but I can guarentee that no harm was meant by it, infact quite the opposite. And I'm sure, when your post gets whittled down to the facts of it, the owners of the site will try to modify future emails so that accidents like this don't happen again. :smile:

    I've changed JFonseka's profile so that he won't be receiving anymore emails from SF.

    Although I'm sure he could have found a more eloquent way of getting his point across, I do see where he's coming from. I was checking an email once from SF when one of my friends happened to walk in the room, and I had to do some explaining.

    What Abacus said is true though; if we actually change the name of the site, then it will be harder for people who really need us to find us.

    I'm looking to see if I can find any way of changing the appearances of the actual emails SF sends, but so far, I haven't been able to find anything. I'll keep trying, but just wanted you guys to know you're being heard.

    Ah, I'm sorry I vented like that, it was really wrong of me.

    I was pretty stupid to not have looked into the various settings first.

    Sorry about that.

    Cheers

    It's not a problem. I can understand that it must have put you in a really awkward situation. I hope that's worked itself out!!

    Hmmm instead of raging at the admins on here's a few suggestions:

    1) Stop your friends seeing your emails, theyre yours not your friends.

    2) If said friends have your password change it

    3) Explain to said friends why your on here, tell them to check it out for themselves.

    4) If your friends are taking the piss cause your on here then they aint really your friends are they

    Thank you that is all.......

    I love when people are so quick to put the blame on others when it's their own stupidity that caused the problem in the first place.

    But we are all human, to err is human so ...... welcome to the human race. I'd say you fit in quite nicely! :arms:
