Occasions: Halloween (House)

A heads up

I don't know if anyone else received any 'Thank you for your order' messages from LJ today for past orders and had a mild panic like I did. I checked my PayPal account and all was well. Nonetheless, I was about to contact LJ when I saw the following on status:

Many users have reported that they're receiving notifications for previous orders in the Gift Shop. Users should be aware that these are duplicate notifications of previous purchases; it does not mean a new purchase has been made.

We apologize for the frustration this may have caused. Our Operations team is investigating and hope to have the situation resolved shortly

Edit: We have identified the servers which appear to be responsible for sending the old notifications and turned them off.
