I've not gotten the usual emailed "thread reply" notifications for some time, despite having the box checked on my posts.

Is this facility broken?

Same with me. It's not really a problem for me, because I probably check the forum more often than I check my email account. :D

As far as I can tell, the board option is enabled. I'm currently testing one of my own threads to see if I get a notice. I did this a few weeks ago and it took about 19 minutes.

edit: 90 minutes after bumping that thread and no notification has appeared. Seems like something may have broke when the forum changed servers. I'll pass this along to Bill and maybe he can figure out what's wrong...

Bill,

Just to clarify... I too am getting email notifications of PMs; what I'm not getting is the notification when a watched (subscribed) thread has been posted to. The setting for this board feature is enabled, but it's been almost four hours since I bumped a thread and I still have not received any notice.

I'm also experiencing long delays of a few hours or more before receiving the notification of a new post in my subscribed threads. In addition, many of them are not working at all.

I'm not getting e-mail notifications of PMs...not sure about threads since I'm not currently subscribed to any.
