So I promised I would keep you guys in the loop.

The extension still is sending out repeating notifications a day after the

locked out the translation notification bot that delivers local
notifications to you guys in hope that this will at least stem more

The main bug for this issue is

that its related to issues with the jobqueue (see:

Any questions, let me know :)
