I get copies of these when anybody tries to register or reset password: nothing received here. Although I do have to say that, since the website was transferred to the SOTA-run server, we’ve had all sorts of problems with sending/receiving emails, including other email servers trapping mails from our system as spam.
That IS news to me - do you get a warning/error message when pasting? In any case, I will investigate…
Edit #1: just tried to send a message via the contact page, and no problems there: received emails both to me and to the smp admin. So at least the SMP email server is running OK…
Edit #2 - just uploaded a GPX track to the SMP tracks page, and pasted a few hundred words (copied at random from an online news website) into the Notes field in the Upload Track dialog. No problems at all, the text was pasted OK, and I was able to save the track to the system OK.
Neil, one thought does occur to me - perhaps you are trying to paste text which is too long? - the Notes field has a limit of 1000 characters. Special characters will also be a problem, so avoid those and use plain text only.
Edit #3: Nope - even if you try to paste more than 1000 characters, the program simply accepts the first 1000 characters of that text, pastes it into the notes field, and discards the rest.
Another thought: you might check settings in your browser (I used Firefox 61.0, 64-bit), or try a different browser. So, which browser are you using?
