Adding alerts

How does one add an alerts for "table saw".

I've tried every permutations but the word saw is left out.

Thank you

There's something happening with the word saw which isn't allowing it to be added. I'll check to see what's going on with that.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I'm guessing it's in a list of words not accepted because it's too common, like "and", but in this case it's used differently. It would be great to be able to allow it somehow!

Cheers!

It's not a problem with the length of the word but rather the word itself or in combination with table. Either way we'll find out what's wrong and get it fixed because we want people to be able to get alerts for table saw's. Hopefully I'll have an update on this soon.

We found the problem and are working on fixing it now. It's because the word "saw" is too common so it's considered invalid by the alerts system. Hoping to have this fixed soon.

Awesome!! I won't miss any deals on miter or table saws, both which I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Ran into a bit of an issue fixing this so it's going to take longer than we thought. It is still on our radar so hopefully we'll be able to fix this soon.

Another solution is to run the RFD RSS feed through ifttt.com and get an email/SMS when the RSS includes words you define.

ifttt.com is a free service that allows you to make "recipes" that looks for a signal you define and do an action you define. (eg the above)
GRAMMAR: The difference between "Feeling you're nuts." and "Feeling your nuts."

and "Help your uncle Jack, off that horse."

After my last follow up on April 5th (sorry for not posting an update then) it was moved back into the bug backlog. That's still currently where it sits. The first attempt to fix it on March 14th failed but I'm hoping it'll get resolved when it gets looked at again. I don't know exactly when that will be but hopefully soon.
