Inconsistent reply notification emails

Inconsistent reply notification emails Can't Post

At some point in the last (probably) three or four weeks, I noticed that I was only getting notifications for maybe half the replies to my posts on here. This isn't a huge inconvenience since I tend to check threads again whenever there are new posts, though if I were to come back from a week away with too many posts in the interim to read them all quickly, it might be more troublesome. Has this happened to anyone else? I can't recall this being an issue at any point before, nor can I see any rhyme or reason to which replies I get notified of or not.

You get replies to your posts? [In reply to] Can't Post

Me too—lots if crickets count.


Seriously though, the Internets have been all kinds of messed up for the past couple months. It would astonish most people how many portals (not sure what they’re called) emails pass trough between sender and receiver. There’s some weird filters out there too which will knock messages down. Yahoo accounts a particularly hard hit it seems.

So I'm not the only one! [In reply to] Can't Post

I get PM notifications, and a couple of weeks ago I received a PM but no notification. I just figured it was one of those odd glitches. But if you're having issues with many of your notifications, then I wonder if something else is going on.

The Boards were moved to a new location a month ago - do you know if this had started happening, before mid-May?

I'm not certain... [In reply to] Can't Post

...exactly when it started, but I am 98% sure it was no earlier than mid-May (this is a highly scientific estimate Cool).

Lately I haven't been receiving notification emails either.
