confirmed a suspicion I have had for some weeks now: The forum is not sending email notifications of threads I'm subscribed to when new replies are posted, *sometimes*. I can't figure out the pattern for when it doesn't do it.
No, they're not in my spam folders, or elsewhere in the email. I never delete anything, and they're definitely not there, after both a keyword / title search of email, and after manual perusal of all emails within a date range for ones (like this thread) that I know when I should have gotten one but did not.
I even changed which email account I get notifications at, and it did not change the problem (as this thread's problem occurred both before and after that). Both are Gmail accounts, but I do not seem to be missing any emails from anyone else (other than the known-to-be-messed-up Freecycle mailing lists from Yahoo and the new still-in-progress Freecycle.org setup they're working on, which isn't due to Gmail AFAICT, as those problems happen regardless of what provider I have tried).
I know that it won't send a notification if I haven't visited the thread since it's last notification, but in the DIY CFL thread *I* was the last poster in before monster's 2-21 post, and I did not get a notification for that post nor for the post today, 2-24.
I wouldn't even know about it except I happened to View New Posts a moment ago and this thread was at the top of the list.
Is there some sort of board limit to number of subscribed threads, or is something messed up on them due to the crashes/etc earlier this year?
Note that at first, until this thread, I still thought maybe I had just not actually clicked the link in every email notification (since I middle-click them to open them in new tabs), and so somewhere along the way I missed replies to some of the threads, which then caused the board to not ever send me new notifications (until I visited the thread again).
Thinking that might be the case, there are a couple of times I've gone to the main page and "marked forums read" for the whole ES board, but even that obviously doesn't fix the problem, since this thread was replied to both before and after I did that the last time, and I didn't get a notification for either one.
So....assuming that there *is* a problem where the board is not sending notifications to me for some threads because it thinks I haven't visited them (because I didn't get a notification I should), how do I reset it to think that I *have* visited it, other than manually going thru my "subscribed threads" list in UCP and opening every one of them?
