Default Message Notification

I've noticed the message notification on this board doesn't always work. I've gone for two or three days before noticing that I haven't heard anything on a particular topic I'm watching. When I check the topic, there could be anywhere from one post to 1 page of posts I've missed. Granted I've been posting a lot more than usual. Admin'* please note this is not a gripe, just an observation. Everything the club does for it'* members (like existing ) is at no charge and I'm grateful for that.

Are we behind a version on our software or is it something I'm doing wrong?

The best thing to do is to set up email notification of new posts and regularly check your email

Karl, I just sent you a PM with your Gmail as you have it in your profile. Can you confirm it'* correct? If so, you need to check your spam settings.

Will, PM'd you back.... I get some notifications. If this isn't a common problem, I can start looking for patterns... It may be only on threads with a lot of subscribers. The two that come to mind are Boosty'* build up and the Official NEBF threads. I'll see if I can pick out a pattern. One other note, when I check a thread that I've missed posts on I'm still subscribed to the thread and after I manually check it I start getting notifications again.

Are you sure Gmail isn't grouping them as conversations?
