E-Mail server incident

Hi,

We had troubles with our email server configuration which resulted in certain email providers (especially mai.ru) rejecting our emails.

This has now been fixed.

Most providers now accept our emails, but they might still classify it as SPAM. If you sign up for FAF, reset your password or expect emails from the forums, please also check your SPAM folder.

To help to get our IP whitelisted by email providers, please make sure that you mark all emails from FAF as “not spam”.

Update

Here’s a list of provider known to block our emails (we’re working on getting un-blocked):

Player Councillor Meeting Decision

Greetings Commanders,

During the recent council meeting, we have all come to a consensus about the Player Councillor position. After a solid discussion about all of our current applicants, we have decided to extend the application period to the 31st of May. Applications will close at the end of the proposed day. Once our application period ends, we will open up a voting poll on the 1st of June which will run through until the 8th of June. FAF members will have the opportunity to vote for their first and second choices. Once the voting poll is closed, we will gather the final results and announce them as soon as possible. We would like to encourage members to apply for the position. You can find our application thread here: http://forums.faforever.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16218

Thank you all for your continued support.

Happy Hunting,
The FAF Council
