Echochamber URLs still showing up in PM notifications

Postby Jorpho » Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:49 am UTC

I had the impression at one point that there was some sort of effort afoot to stamp out the remaining traces of Echochamber, though I'm not sure how accurate that impression is.

Just in case: as the subject line states, PM notification E-mails still appear to contain the Echochamber URL on occasion.

I checked my latest PM notifications and they all link to forums.xkcd.com. Are these PM replies to a PM thread that started a while ago?
You rang?

I think the site figures out what domain to use for links et al by what domain you're using at the time... so if you're using forums.xkcd.com and trigger an email to be sent, the email will be sent with a link to forums.xkcd.com.

So, whoever sent you that PM is probably using echochamber, and you should therefore shun them forever.
