A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

BOTD Email with Secret Code

Post by tamdlyte » 15 Jun 2018, 00:17

I know that a few people have commented about this and I can't find anywhere that it has been fixed? I haven't been getting ANY of my BOTD emails for at least a few days, maybe a week (I'd have to go check) but I AM getting the "Oh, no..." email and I AM getting the "Topic Notification Reply" email. So I'm just missing the first BOTD email with that coveted "Secret Code"! And of course, I haven't changed anything in my user panel or in my email and I've looked in my spam and trash folders, so that isn't the issue... ;) Anyone else?

You only get it if you subscribed to the BOTD. If you did subscribe to it, make sure you didn't unsubscribe by error, make sure you gave the correct email, or check your spam folder.

If you received the email, the secret code should be on it (toward the bottom of the email).

You should subscribe to the BOTD and you will be emailed the code.

Oh, I did that. Two days in a row. So, does it happen every time we subscribe or just every once in a while? Because no mails were received so far.

You subscribe one time to get the BOTD's emails.

The emails are send every day. Make sure you gave the correct email when subscribing and check your spam folders.

If you received the email it might just be hidden in an inconspicuous place like the middle of a row. That's how I found mine.
