Ticket Numbers #2

In No Ticket Number For Help Form Entries?, I expressed my dismay in submitting problem reports, and getting back acknowledgement, but without a ticket number.

Today, I submitted a Spam Blog Notification, and got an interesting botmail (and the typo is in my original report):
Re: [#545569] Spam Blog Nitification

Hi there,

Thanks for contacting Blogger Support. We will review your message and respond as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.

Did they restore the ticket number, and simplify the message content? Or does this vary depending upon which of the selections in the list is used:

  • My blog is gone!
  • I can't post. (I'm on Blog*Spot)
  • I can't post. (I'm on my own server)
  • I can't post pictures.
  • Template or Display Problems
  • Comments and Backlinks
  • Profile Issues
  • Team Blogs
  • Mail Features (BlogSend, Blogger Mobile, Mail-to-Blogger)
  • Add-Ons (Blogger for Word, Picasa, hit counters, etc.)
  • AdSense Issues
  • Blogger is Down!
  • Report a TOS violation
  • Other

Update (13:19 June 22, 2006):
A second botmail, with more detail, suggesting that action is pending?

Hello,

Thanks for writing us regarding this possible Terms of Service violation. We will examine it soon and take action as necessary.

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
