Getting email notification

by sneakers » May 13th, '09, 16:57

I don't get notification of replies for my posts, even though I have that preference checked off in my profile. No, it's not in my spam box, and I've had the same mail address for years. Who would I notify at this site?

I can't offer a real solution to that. Though I could suggest clicking the "Watch this topic for replies" link at the bottom left of the page until you find your answer.

Plus you may want to post this in the Feedback forum... it may be noticed by the mods quicker.

It has not been working for new members that joined after Jan 2008 as far as I know.

Moving this to Feedback. Get the "A" team on it.

I complained about this non working notification when I joined several months ago and it's still not working.

It's ridiculous. I have to check every post I made to see if there are replies. I belong to 15 other forums and don't have this. Does IT know about this? And who's the webmaster?

Have you doublechecked for "yes" for notify in your profile? And is your email current?

Yes and Yes. So Geek, you are saying it works for you? I really thought I had pinpointed the problem start date. Now I am at a loss.

It works for me.

When you go to post a message is the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box checked? I know you said it was checked on your profile page, but what about as seen below?

It works for me. Don't be a jerk, I was trying to be helpful and I did read your original post. Sometimes profile items get reset due to server issues.
