For some reason, I'm not being notified when there's a new post to one of my watched threads. Has anyone else experienced a problem with this?
Jojo, I would imagine everybody has experienced this - Watched threads doesn't send you a notification!
There are some downsides to notifications, but on balance it's generally a fairly widely desired feature so we will add it in due course.
Oops, thanks, I thought I must have missed something!
I can't see the downsides to notifications, at least, from the users point of view....another vote for that feature....
Not much downside from a user point of view, no. They're in the pipeline. In fact, they're working, just need to add a few controls so that people can opt-out more easily etc. Should be released fairly soon.
Any update on this? Would be very useful to have.
It's basically working but I've not had a chance to test it. If you want to be an informal beta tester you're very welcome.
Simple visit this URL:
and turn on Receive Watch Notifications.
Let me know how it goes. Thanks.
Would it be difficult to notify us of any replies/activity to threads which we've posted on?
'Threads I posted to' isn't quite the same thing.
There's a button "Watch Thread" on the top right of each thread. Isn't that what you are looking for?
Maybe, thanks. But does it inform you of new postings (by email)?
