Re: Idea: Email reminders for not-passing, haven't edited in a while

In some ways this goes back to my suggestion and perform auto checks to see if progress is being made.  That way their progress can be auto updated as much as possible.

I see where in step 2 of the algorithm, you already have a check for 'not disabled_reminders'. I was going to suggest that as a profile option, but seems you've already thought of it.

Just mention the ability to disable reminders in the emails you send out and IMO, that will sufficiently address your concerns about nagging.

Also, I'm good with sending out the first notice after 30 days and 60 days thereafter. I think that's a reasonable compromise (although I probably would have just split the difference and made it every 45 days, period, as that would simplify your algorithm).
