Country-based Alerts Now Available

  • A new country-based alert is now available which will send out an email whenever a photo is posted from a country in one's 'Countries Alert' list (besides one's own photo). The available time periods are:

    -None (default)
    -On Demand (within 15 minutes)
    -Hourly
    -Daily

    There is a maximum of ten countries one may store in their list. Note that the email will be sent ONLY when a photo has been uploaded within the specified time period from the specified country, so one needn't worry about receiving too many email messages.

    If anyone has any problems or suggestions, please let me know, thanks.

    It would be nice if the alert displayed the whole path to the place in the photo in the alert mail e.g.

    North America >> United States >> Midwest >> Michigan >> Grand Haven

    That way if somebody is only interested in certain places in a country they can use this information
    to know whether or not they want to view the photo.

    OK, I have it displayed up to the state/province level. Thanks for this idea, and please let me know if you or anyone else encounters any problems.
