Following on from last Fridays email problem I just wanted to let you know that we're still working on the issue which is external and related to the volume of mail we're trying to send overall.

Just over 20000 emails managed to get through and the vast majority of the recipients downloaded and visited Home however the problem still remains and I'm waiting to hear what can be done about it.


Our intention is to resend all the emails we're sure didnt get through (the majority) and also send a larger batch this coming Thursday but the problem needs to be dealt with first obviously.

 

More news when I have it.

 

 

Ted

 

 

PS. With regards to "gamesharing" Home we've obviously removed the firewall from Home now so it works much like many PSN Games with multiple accounts. However, "gamesharing" involves sharing personal account details and this is just plain dumb.

Never ever give anyone your PSN Login ID or your Password.

Please, be smart about this, giving your account details to someone else is just like giving your account away hoping to get it back.

Open Beta isnt that far away.

Update 16:42uk:
We're working on clearing the email "blockage" but its a pretty slow process so I'll say now that no invites will leave today. More on this subject tomorrow.

For those of you interested, the first batch of invites was targetted at a percentage of people who had downloaded something from the Store. Its nothing to do with number of posts in the forums.
The next batch is largely based around active gamers, ie those who have logged into a SCEE hosted game in the last couple of months.
Again its not everyone, for those who dont get an invite Open Beta will be here before Christmas.

Thanks for answering that question fast. I can only assume its not a problem sharing then. I understand about not giving out personal details. Thanks again.

Seems unlikely, if Sony noticed anything happening on these forums. Wouldn't they then have more people posting relevant information and responses to the, albeit few, valid complains and suggestions posted around here?

Why not just send all the emails again?
Unless your positive they got through?
Some people may not get an invite by mistake if you dont.

Dont have a lot of hope unfortunately. If they've been working on this I presume since this morning and still to get to the route of the problem then I guess we probably wont get them tonight. I'm taking it that they finish around 5pm ish.

Thanks for the info Ted.:Thumbs:

No doubt you were bombarded with private messages stating " Where my invite! " However, it be a joy if I was one of those to take part in the Beta, but can wait for the official rollout in a few weeks time.:xLol:

Please help me out I dont know what else to do to try to qualify I have been a registered member on the RLS site for 2 years as well as a PSN and Playstation Underground member for quite awhile, I have filed wherever possible via links from forums for access and downloaded the HOME Theme months ago. I still havent received the access can you please help a loyal playstation owner and gamer, my PSN ID is JohnGaud and my email is JOHNGAUD@COMCAST.NET any and all info / help would be great. Thank you for your time.

I had a feeling that they wouldn't leave today. At least the open beta is before Christmas so if I don't get in then at least I don't have to wait long.
