Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello beautiful Beauty Insider Community members! 

 

We’re starting this thread for you guys to report any issues and weird things that you are seeing or ask any questions. We have a number of issues logged that we are already working on a fix for, so this is a work in process.

 

Some things to note as you are reporting issues:

  • If you are looking for a thread and can’t find it, please post here. We’ll need to manually move some threads that got lost in the migration to their correct groups.
  • If you are reporting a bug please be specific about the issue you're seeing, how you got there (“I clicked here and it did *this*”), the device you're using and which browser you're in. 

 

Some tips:

  • If you are looking for a thread that you commented on in the old community, go to the front page of conversations and click the “My Posts” tab. This is where you will find all of your conversations activity, including your heart count.

 

It’s good to see you all and thanks for being patient!

 

Whenever reporting a bug we need as much info as possible or our tech team cannot reproduce the issue and verify it's actually occurring. If they can't see the issue they cannot fix it. You cannot overshare details, test on too many devices or share too many screenshots... The more detail the better!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Thanks, @TeamBIC.  Appreciate the update! I hadn't realized until today but I'm not even getting notifications about private messages, not just community tags.  Thanks for trying to work on things. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@CookieGirl1 @Guessgal These notes about your experiences with this email notifications bug are helpful - thank you both for tagging us! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC I actually even tried just resetting all of my notification settings to see if that would make a difference and unfortunately it didn't.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I tried also @CookieGirl1 . I have not had email notifications in well over 9 months!! Maybe more! Lol 

@TeamBIC thanks for working on this issue and keeping us informed as well! 🤗

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@Sunnysmom 9 months?!  Wow.  It's so weird that only some people are affected and others seemingly aren't.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Yup @CookieGirl1 ! Maybe more. 🤪It’s been driving me nutty forEVER! Good thing there was *ahem more time last year to develop some patience! Agree, wonder why just some of us! Ugh. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC not getting email notifications either

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Thanks for flagging @sprocketta! We're aware that many Community members are not receiving email notifications at this time, so we're continuing to work closely with our engineering and vendor partners to troubleshoot and fix. We apologize for the frustrating experience! We'll be sure to post an update once we begin to see improvements. 🙂

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC I'm still not getting email notifications, either; I think it's been (as @RGbrown commented) about two weeks now.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC I also posted about this on The Bug Thread 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC also not receiving email notifications for tags 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello, @TeamBIC! The past day or two (I think since the update), I haven't been receiving email notifications when someone @ me. I think they're showing up under notifications though.

 

Is this happening to anyone else?

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@haleyvvvv @Loretta55 @lnum @lmaster Hi all! We're continuing to work with our engineering team and vendor partners behind-the-scenes to work out a solution for broken email notifications. We have our fingers crossed for a fix soon!

 

Thank you for flagging the bug to us, and appreciate your patience as we continue to troubleshoot! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Thank you for the update, @TeamBIC!! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC thank you for all your consistent hard work!!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC , I am having the same problem @haleyvvvv. I am not receiving email notifications when someone mentions me.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@Loretta55 @haleyvvvv Also experiencing the same issue, no email notifications for mentions. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC 

Notifications seem to be down, both the notifications page (mine is completely blank, no matter how many times I refresh) and emails for mentions. It looks to have started some time last night; I received an email for a 645pm (central) mention, but nothing for mentions that happened at 833pm central and later. 

 

Since they are down, here's hoping a mod is actually browsing the board on a weekend to see this... 🤞 Sending a PM to y'all as well, as my PM box looks fine (I guess...assuming I didn't receive any PMs last night)

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@RGbrown @itsfi @Sunnysmom @haleyvvvv @SportyGirly125 @pocketvenus Thanks all for flagging these notifications issues to us! We are continuing to work with our vendor partners on a solution for the buggy experience, and your feedback always helps us understand the issues our members see in the BIC. 

 

We will keep you updated on improvements as we are able to! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC Thank you for investigating the matter! It seems to have been spotty, on and off for a bit, but at least for now, the notifications are working? Will post here again if it breaks again. Thanks again!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

That's so odd, @pocketvenus; I've been getting notifications consistently over the last few days.  I wonder why it seems that certain users are affected...🤔.
