Hi Admin,

Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

Congratulations, Torsten.!

As the result of your contributions to the community, you have earned a new rank. Your new rank is Acclaimed Contributor [Founder].

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

I still get a congratulation after almost every reply i send.

How to get rid of it?

How to delete all the messages in my inbox without selecting "delete all"?

I don't want to mark ~500 single messages.

 

:-(

 


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hmm, I only got the one on Dec 9.  It doesn't seem to be related to the number of Kudos you get in a day.

   I seldom look, but I seem to have gotten nine of these since
2016-12-06.  I normally edit my postings elsewhere, then copy+paste them
here, and save the files (so that I can remember what got deleted, among
other reasons).  My records show ten postings since that time, including
one (a complaint about a lame, misplaced posting) which has disappeared.
This seems roughly consistent with one "Congratulations!" for every
(persistent?) posting.

   Interestingly (so much as any of this waste-of-bits could be
considered interesting), in this batch there was a (minor) change in my
"new rank":

Sent: 2016-12-17 03:40 AM    Your new rank is Honored Contributor.

Sent: 2016-12-06 01:17 PM    Your new rank is Honored Contributor [Founder].

Probably coincidental, but who knows? That "IGNORE THIS USER" button is
starting to look more and more attractive.  This junk is an even bigger
waste of bits than the (stupid) pseudo-personal pseudo-pictures
(so-called "avatars"?) at the left of every posting in the (identically
titled) "Servers and Operating Systems" all-topics listings.  (Can I get
a 60x60 100% transparent square to replace my (stupid) stopwatch?)

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

>Can I get a 60x60 100% transparent square to replace my (stupid) stopwatch?

 

I would think so.  Find someone that has one like that.  I just saw one yesterday:

https://community.hpe.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1388117

Hmm, it appears this only works because the URL is missing:

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/6923/1301lrmp04o1964chevrole.jpg

Here is an all black one:

https://community.hpe.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/971i13FF465E7DCB2D69/image-dimensions/120x120?v=v2

White version?

https://community.hpe.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/971i13FF465E7DCB2D69/

 

I just noticed you can give Kudos to an image, not sure if they are included in your Kudos counts?

But I don't see it in the My Kudoed Posts or Posts I Kudoed.  Nor any Kudoed images.

 

> change in my "new rank":

 

Looks like Founder ribbons are gone.

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

I still get a new rank several times each day ...

:-(

 

Looks like after each reply I get a new rank ...


Hope this helps!

   The "IGNORE THIS USER" button did the job for me.  Not classy, but
effective.

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

We have an escalation with Support still open on this, but to date they have not able to replicate the issue but hopefully we will have a resolution on this soon.

Hi Torsten,

Just to let you know that Support are trying to replicate the error, with little success, but they are still pursing a solution/fix.

   Which user did you tell it to ignore?  (All my "Congratulations!"
messages came from Warren_Admin.  The last one I got was on/at
"2017-01-11 08:11 PM".)

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

I have Warren_Admin on my ignored users list (sorry for that, Warren_Admin), but still get these messages.

Can't count them, I maybe have now 500+.

How to delete them, other than one by one or the entire mailbox?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Can't you just check off all the ones to delete and then "Delete Checked" under Message Options?

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

The sending user is on my ignored list and nevertheless the number of mails per day is increasing to ~30 to 40 per day!

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

Torsten,

Sorry hear this.  Hope you are getting points for each email.

I just got one email after complaining about the "https://community.hpe.com" website.  Can not see any links to the user's forums..

Take care,

Bob G.

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

I just noticed the same messages -- but Torsten is the winner for quantity received. I only 8 now.
Seems like the problem isn't receving a lot attention. For me, it means I just ignore the mail icon for a few months.
I hope I don't miss a notification that I have 1 million dollars waiting for me in a Nigerian bank.

   True at the time, but I see now that I got two more on/at:
      2017-02-14 03:22 AM
      2017-02-14 03:26 AM

   Example content:

From: Warren_Admin
Sent: #2017-02-14 03:26 AM
[ REPORT INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT ]  [ REMOVE WARREN_ADMIN FROM IGNORED LIST ]
 [ ADD TO FRIENDS ]
[...]

   You have to admire this software, but exactly why is not entirely
clear.

Re: Congratulations! You have a new rank in Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community

Wow! I just got 102 Congratulations messages.
Is there a new badge available for me?

Community email is useless. I don't have time to search through the Warren_Admin spam.
