When a user’s post is automatically hidden due to multiple flags, they receive a PM from the
site contact username, default
system. However, they are not notified of this PM, nor does the normal green circle indicator appear on their avatar.
Steps to reproduce:
- User A makes a bad post (or topic).
- Users B, C, and D flag the post.
- User A’s post is auto-hidden and they are sent a PM.
- User A does not receive a notification about the PM/hidden post.
Oh yeah I can definitely repro on try. This is a bad regression, can you look at it ASAP @neil or whoever else is available?
At least the hidden post itself does contain a reminder to check your messages, if you happen to visit it:
All I can figure out is that it works when I create the system message from the rails console, but not using UI. Time to git bisect.
I made a fix for this today. Tested back to Jan 1, 2016 and it wasn’t working then either.
I’ve also noticed this when a moderator responds to a flag that I have made. Not every time, but sometimes it does not notify me that the moderator has responded.
