Are you not getting forum alerts for threads you're watching? on 02/03/2010 14:58:09 MST Print View

A bunch of times I've not received alerts for threads I'm already set to follow, most recently with the 2nd Annual Pt Reyes Trip planning thread and the Winter Camping at Peter Grubb Hut thread.

For example, after checking Last 50 Posts I noticed a bunch of new posts to the Pt Reyes thread, clicked on one, and sure enough, at the top right of the page, was a link for "Stop watching this thread." Meaning I had already indicated I wanted to watch the thread. Yet I received no alerts for a whole bunch of recent comments.

Has this happened to you?

Is there something I need to be doing that I'm not? I thought once you're watching a thread, you're watching it and getting alerts for every new comment - especially when the link at the top right of the page shows you are already set to watch with "Stop watching this thread."

Hate to be missing out on all the good info and conversations.

EJ and I resolved this elsewhere, but to get the updates, you need to click on the link sent you in the first update email. Just visiting the forum from an open web session doesn't "reset" the watch feature. You'll need to click through from the email to force the reset and keep getting emails.

Thanks all!

How do I see what Threads I am watching? on 03/24/2010 00:31:24 MDT Print View


I can't seem to find the link to view threads I am watching so I can stop watching the thread.
