Question No Links in Email Notifications - Bug?

I assume that it's a bug that where there should be links in e-mails, there is just regular text. It works fine in PMs, but not in e-mails.

- there is no link on the game name
- there is no link on "Click here" e.g. "Click here to play Breakout and claim back the highscore, or click here to see the highscores."

Can anyone confirm this bug?

this is normal behaviour, URL-bbcode gets parsed in PMs but emails are "text only" ...

Well it certainly looks like a bug from the user's perspective when they get mails that say "click here", but there's no link on either word. Couldn't you split the code for email notifications and make them be sent with links properly done? I know that vB sends out e-mail notifications with links properly done.

PM notifications are a waste of space since even with a low activity arcade you could be sending out dozens, up to hundreds or thousands on busy boards every day. E-mail notifications make sense for busier boards, but as they are now, they simply feel and look broken.
