Notifications/emails of posts

Post  Stephanie on Fri Jul 29, 2011 3:26 pm

I don't seem to be receiving email notifications to topics I am watching or have posted to. Do you only get notification if you posted the original topic?

In my profile it appears that I have everything selected properly to ensure I get these notifications and I have checked my Spam folder and notifications are not there either.

Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Hey Steph, So you have checked Yes for Always notify me of replies :. Note that you can change this each time you post. So if you select 'Yes' when it was previously 'No', you may not get a notification for new replies to threads you posted in when it was checked 'No'. I don't know this, but it's possible.

The notification function itself works. I checked 'Yes' and within 6 hours went back and checked 'No' because I was getting an email for every reply and it was ... well ... annoying. This was early in the life of this board, so I can't remember if I got notifications only from threads I started or every thread I posted to, but the function itself worked.

Give it some time and see if it comes around. Else scratch .

Yup, I have 'Always Notify me of replies' selected. I'll monitor like you suggest. I don't think it's a matter of me not receiving notifications for posts I had originally selected as 'no' but I could be mistaken. I have also noticed a lag in getting an email compared to when the reply was actually posted, but I'll keep an eye on it.

I have just the opposite...I have been trying to get rid of the notifications for when a new member joins. Haven't quite got that one figured out yet.

Would that maybe be under 'Profile' and Topic(s) being watched?

I have tried unchecking everything in the profile in regards to notifications to no avail. It's not that big of a deal and at least I get to see who is joining.

After some monitoring of the situation, I am definitely not receiving all the notifications I should be. It seems I receive a few notifications early on in a topic, i.e. after the first 2 or 3 replies, but once the thread gets longer, I receive no notifications. Anyone else noticing this?
