Inactive account and late or non registration of Postcard.


Dear Members, 

on the 31 of October, 2016 we sent out a general email to all members, this was the first time ever using this type/style of emailing. The email was set to be delivered once and only once to each member, however an error occurred and the same email was sent repeatedly to about 70 members.

Our software personnel advised that the error occurred from the hosting side, nevertheless we are the ones responsible for sending the email and we take full responsibility for this. We sincerely apologize to all member who were affected by this unfortunate occurrence, please forgive us.

We are working to fix the error expeditiously, as stated before this is the first time we are using this particular type/style of emailing. 
We will not be using this format of emailing anymore. Once more we humbly apologize for any inconvenience caused.




General Mail to All Members:

Dear Members,

(1) It has come to our attention that some members are not registering their received Postcard(s) in a timely manner, we are kindly asking these members to please register the postcards that you have received in a timely manner.

(2) We are asking members who are sending Postcards and are due to receive Postcards but keeps there account Inactive for an extremely long amount of time thereby causing there Address not to be given out, whiles still continuing to send more postcards, to please consider setting your account back to Active again in order to receive some postcards if possible.

(3) Members who have signed up but never send or received a Postcard and don't make any meaningful contribution, will face a possibility of their accounts being deleted.

(4) Members when writing Admin for lost postcard ID please give us as much information as possible, when you write us just saying I got a postcard without ID what should I do, we still have to write to you to ask about those information in relations to the Postcard, we are kindly asking that you give us as much information as possible when writing us about such Postcards.

Once again we are kindly asking Members to register received postcard(s) in a timely manner and to set your account to active after a long duration of being inactive. Failing to do so we may take action against your account.

Thank you

    I too think that there is a bug in algorythm on your site. I sent 7 cards but received the ninth today. I don't think it's fair :)

    Admin Note: there's no bug in the system additionally some members don't get enough postcards back on time it's a problem, now receiving too much too fast is a problem, is everything going to be a problem? It's going to be too much at some stage.

    I did write in support of of PU reminding people to register cards but I have received the e-mail three times in two days, plus all the there times. Surely in this day and age it is not too difficult to stop these nuisance e-mails, mine are also going into my junk mail where they belong. If I get more I will be closing my account.
    The other problem is why do I get no answers to questions? I have asked twice why there is no way we can print addresses but have been ignored. If we are to register cards can you also answer members' questions.

    I have received masses and masses of these messages and still receiving them today. I am more than upset. I am quite ill and this is not helping having to constantly get rid of the messages. I have emailed you about it and still you do nothing. I will never use this site again. I will take the trouble to register any cards on route as that is only fair to the sender but that is all. I have always registered cards I have received which is more than I can say about cards I have sent.

    I have received more than 20 times today. I think it's not a difficult issue in this network world. Contact the host admin, google admin, or disable the account. Just try any kind of possible solution because the situation is last more than one week.

    come on guys! They have explained and apologized for it so what's the point of still attacking them! It makes sence to send the email to EVERY member of this site, ever thought of how much time it takes to sort out who is and who is not following the rules, one by one? That's why the general email isinvented... And that some people received the mail several times - yes, so did I-, so what?? nobody is perfect, right? just push the delete button...
    Give them a break.. And if you can't and you know better, then why not give them a hand managing this site.
    Enjoy, be happy, and send a SMILE!

    Hope you get this email glitch sorted out soon. However, it is easy enough to delete the excess emails from my mailbox. 😀😀 Great postcard exchange site.

    Hello! I like your site, and I registered all cards when I received them! I received this letter more than 20 times... Can you stop this?😊

    YES! Why are we receiving the email so many times? Unfortunately the ones who do not follow the rules of sending and registering cards make it bad for the ones who really want to use this service for what it is intended for. I have received some wonderful cards and always register as soon as I receive them. I have so many expired cards that I stopped sending out cards. It's expensive to send over seas just to have people NOT register their cards. If you do not want to participate, close your account so the rest of us can still enjoy this service. Thank you PostCard United for your service. Please stop sending the email to those who are active. Spam the ones who are inactive, maybe they will reply. If not, if you are inactive for a certain amount of days/months your account should be automatically closed. Just my thoughts!

    I would really appreciate it if you could stop sending this message. I have received that email at least 10-12 times now and I'm really annoyed. I register every postcard I get. If it has not be registered, it is because I have not received it yet. I also have sent a lot more cards than I have received, which I don't think is normal. Whatever is happening, it is not only the "inactive" members creating it.

    Can you please stop sending out these mails? The last 10 were enough and I am an active member. I am getting really annoyed by the number of mails I am getting every day now...

    Pls stop sending out this email, you are spamming us.
    Yes I am inactive, but it's depends on that when I am asking for addresses I don't get any. And I register all cards I got as soon as I see them in my mailbox.

    I have received this notice in an email now 6 times! This is ridiculous! I am not one of those people so why do I continue to get this email?

    I send 9 cards and I received 6. This is normal? I don't think so!:(

    While I appreciate the email reminder as it's always frustrating when folks don't register their cards, I've received the email SIX times--my email provider is now marking it as Spam. As it is, I've had so many problems negotiating this site that this is kind of the last straw for me.

    I received three letters with the text. This is normal?

    It does no harm for members to be reminded occasionally to register received cards if not on the day of receipt then as soon as is possible.
    When a member has taken the trouble to match a card to the likes of the recipient, write the card and pay the postage it is ill-mannered and thoughtless not to register the card.
