Only ever get [1] Alert, although following a dozen Topics
« on: February 16, 2019, 11:28:15 AM »
Hi - I only ever seem to get [1] ⚠ Alert these days, although am following a dozen Topics. Is this just me - did I break something?

I have noticed that I only seem to get an alert when someone has quoted me.

If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Might be worth checking your Profile>Modify Profile>Notifications and see whether it's set up as you want. I think some got altered somehow in the latest server change.

@Newportnobby  This is how notifications is set up Mick - do I need to change owt?

For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me:   Instantly - but only of the first unread reply
For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me of:  Replies and moderation

Looks OK to me, David.
Now check Profile Info>Alerts>Alert settings
You'll see the 3rd one down is a tickbox for 'Quotes of own posts'
Also check Alerts>Topics and Boards

I can't help too much as I have minimal notifications myself i.e. just PMs

I have just about everything checked Mick.  Still, not a problem in the great scheme of things!  :)

Underneath the last post in a thread there's also the 'Notify' button. Never used it myself but presumably it alerts you if a new post is made in a given thread

Glad to hear it is all fixed.  I imagine the checkboxes were reset when we did some updates a few weeks back.

You aren't quite in the right bit for Alerts.  You want to click Profile, then under Profile Info on the left look for Alerts.  Then tick and save all of the Alerts that you want.
