Not getting emails from forum replies

  • gasbag11 Top 10 Forum Poster Thursday, December 17, 2015 12:21 AM Reply

    Ever since DX introduced the new forum formatting, I.m not getting emails from some replies to some threads I'm subscribed to. Sometimes I'll get an email notification for a reply in a certain thread, and sometimes I don't. I also didn't get one from a new thread, but got one from a 2 year old thread.


    I'm also not the only one having this problem. vv

    It's a real PITA trying to see if someone's replied  to threads I've subscribed to, especially if I've asked a question and don't know that it was answered. 

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Nope. No email for your post @Simonetti2010, but I did get the PM notification. 


    See if you get an email or if the PM works for you.

    @gasbag11,


    I don't think I have PM notification enabled for my account. I think that's a feature only the Forum Top 10 + DX Staff have. I surely would be nice if DX would enable PM notification for me. Even if I go to http://club.dx.com/forums/accounts/mypms.aspx, your mention to my name doesn't show up.


    I did, however, get the e-mail notification.

    This time I did get an email, but not from your first reply. 


    Anyone should be able to get a PM if it's working. You should see the notification when you click "Latest Posts", or click on "My Account".


    Sometimes the PM feature doesn't work properly or takes a stupidly long time to work. I've gotten PMs a week or more after they were sent. I think the longest was about 2 weeks.  


    edit - Btw, they're not true PMs. You just get the notification and clicking on it takes to your account and gives a link to the thread you were PMed in.

    Using that method, the last PM shown for me is from 2012. I know I had a few yesterday and a few more today, so it defintely doesn't work for me. 


    I guess that's one more thing for DX devs to work on.

    I would normally suggest making a "Site Bug Report" thread about not getting PMs, but it's probably as useless as the one I made about 17 months ago about getting logged out all the time. 


    Someone should make a site bug report about the site bug report forum being broken.

    @Simonetti2010 do you really not get PMs?

    I remember the last time that major work was done on the forum, email notifications for new threads completely stopped and we only got them for old threads. DX took their sweet time even acknowledging the problem existed. It was quite a while before it was actually fixed.

    I got emails for sheepish's last 2 posts in this thread. Don't know about other threads yet.
