I recently received an email titled: "Top new Parenting - Stack Exchange users for the week of Apr 11 2011‏"

However when I click through on the link provided I can't see any information about myself.

I did some head scratching and realised it was for the previous week. Clicking through on the prev link link on the above page I appear on the league and on the right hand side as expected.

I think to be helpful the link in the email should point to the link which references myself automatically otherwise it's confusing.

Note: I only received this email 30 minutes ago, so it's not like an email that was sent last week. It was sent this week and should point to last week.

  • its said Apr 11, you need to click during that time or click previous week link - stackexchange.com/leagues/103/week/parenting/2011-04-10 – YOU Apr 18 '11 at 1:49
  • @YOU - The current time is UTC 1:51. I received the email at UTC 1:00. Which means I received the email 'this week' not 'last week' so a new user will always need to click the prev week, thus my suggestion to have it automatically point to the correct week. – going Apr 18 '11 at 1:52
  • sorry, you're right – YOU Apr 18 '11 at 1:55

Nice catch.

Clearly including a link to the most recent league rather than the league you actually placed in is... sub-optimal.

Going forward all such e-mails will instead use the correct historical league link.
