    Notification problem

    I'm noticing that I no longer get email notification of new posts to threads I'm subscribed to. I seem to remember someone on Strat Talk with a similar issue in the last few days. Is this a result of the recent DNS problem, or is there something else happening that I can do at my end to rectify it?

    It's something you need to activate. If you click on My Profile at the top, and then Forum Actions on the smaller header below, it gives you options of receiving email from the forum and whether you want to receive notifications regarding threads. Also, you can choose on a case-by-case basis whether you want to subscribe to threads....To do that, click on a thread, and near the top, you'll see Thread Tools, which offers you the opportunity to subscribe to that particular thread.

    I've always had all notifications turned on to Instantly by email. I've considered changing it because there are threads that have degenerated into abstract conversations that you need to backtrack several posts just to get the meaning of what the latest poster meant. That's frustrating to me, so I may choose to unsubscribe to specific threads from ToneMonkey's Lounge. But overall, I find email notifications are a good way to keep up with threads I'm interested in. I miss them now that they're no longer appearing.

    Since we are not a large forum I find it easier just to pop in & check
    But I have been on larger forums where I do activate notices for some threads

    How long has it been since the notifications were working for you?

    I think it was Friday night at 7:32PM. I got a notification of a post KC had made. That was the last time I got anything from AxeTalk in my email. I'm still getting notifications from TDPRI, Strat Talk, Squier Talk, and Gretsch Talk. It's only AxeTalk that's problematic.

    I'll have to let Paul answer but if it occurred over the weekend it wouldn't surprise me if it was related to the issue this weekend
