  • I can't figure out how Subscription Notcies are supposed to work...

    My setting are such that I get an instant email notification of new posts to subscribed thread. When I get a new notification, they all end with "There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again." I can understand why this has been added, to prevent the boards from accidentally "spamming" me. Thing is, I'd kinda rather be "spammed", because the way things are now, I can miss a full page and a half to 2 pages worth of posts in-between notices. Its happened a couple of times now. I'll check my email, see that I got a notification. I visit the thread (signed in to my profile and everything) read the new post and continue surfing. A couple hours later, I check my email again, no new notifications. On a whim, I go to the thread anyway and find that 6 or 8 post have been added. What exactly constitutes a new visit, then?

    Okay, here's an interesting point. I just got a notice that digitalangel has replied to this thread. (Thank you, digitalangel.) I clicked on the link in the notice and the only post I see is my first one. WTH?

    BTW digitalangel, you said notices reset once you visit the actual thread itself. That is what I'm doing (I have my main threads bookmarked) not just coming to the forum. Thank you, though, that is good to know.

      Yeah, I read through your post again and realized that you were already visiting the specific thread, so deleted my previous post since you had already followed my suggestio nif I had read closely enough.
