Topic Reply notification question
Posted by stinger on Saturday, March 13, 2004 8:52 PM
I am a bit confused as to how this works.

If I either make a post and click the reply notify box, or just view a thread and click "watch this topic", I do get an email telling me that there is one. But once I go and view the thread again, it seems to get turned off after that one time reviewing.

Do I have to reset it after each time I after I have revisited the thread? That seems to be the only thing that works.

If I may give an example of another website (with the initials e.b.a.y.), I can watch up to three items, and specify the time period for which I want to be notified, and no matter how many times I look up those notices, I will always get a notification until the time period runs out.

Am I doing something wrong, or is that just the way it works here?

I looked at my watched topics list and was amazed at how many times I list the same thread.

Thanks for any help.

Yeah, I've noticed the same thing Stinger, maybe someone will have the answers for ya, but I've been "re-watching" topics for a few months. It could be just the way it is.

I'm happy to know I'm not the only one.

Thanks, Kik!

Thought it was just me doing something wrong! Glad to know it's not, but sad to know that such a basic flaw mars an otherwise un-utterably brilliant forum!

Of course, I suspect that very brilliance could be at the heart of the problem - the thing is just so darned popular that the server gets bogged down.

Who knows - anyway it's still by far the best forum around!
