I decided to setup the email reminder to go out every day, but I realise that this may not be desirable. 

 

I am considering switching it to match days only, to reduce the number of emails going out.

I reckon you'd be best to have it the day before matches.

The day before and the day of matches?

I'd say just the day before the matches.

It is worth noting that the reminders are only ever sent out if you haven't made a prediction for one of the available matches. So the frequency could be daily, but if you enter your predictions for Saturday's games on the Monday, you won't receive another reminder on Tuesday, Wednesday etc.

I've sent out an email to all who receive reminder emails, asking them for their opinion.

One reminder day before the game is enough. There will always be people forgetting no matter how many reminders are sent.

Add me into that category. I make my predictions during the podcast on Monday, receive the reminder emails, and often find myself scrambling with minutes to go before predictions end.

Shite....I replied to yer e-mail Craig...Duh!

 

Anyway I said a couple of days before the weekend to include the weekend matches and any on the following Monday or midweek. As you didn't have that option in the vote I went for the day before the match only.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!

Happy to get multiple reminders until predictions made, that saved me this week and last season I forgot a lot!

Where's "leave it alone, I quite liked the Wednesday reminder" option?!

The Wednesday reminder was a good one, but I think the people have spoken (via my restricted poll)

I will leave the reminder frequency as it is until after this weekend's games.

It might appear that I have rewritten the reminders, but I have just turned them off. :)

The reminders will resume the day before the league returns.
