"Topic Reply Notification" emails...

Postby xceptnl » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:59 pm

I think my settings are correct to NOT receive emails for every topic that you are subscribed to, yet y inbox is getting blown up. Any suggestions?

Can we see an option for posts per page. I have always had really fast internet so 40 posts per page has been my usual on every vbulletin forum. My research says it is likely and admin setting.

I'm having the same issue. I got 10ish emails about threads is was subscribed to but had notification turned off.

In FAQ I learned that I need to book mark threads not subscribe. The problem is that all my previous posts are under the subscribe status so if I will loose then if I unsubscribe.

My issue is with the content of the notification emails. The old notification actually had the text of the post in the email. New system just says that a person replied to the thread, and has a link to the thread, but doesn't actually say what they posted.

Not trying to be picky, but *if* there is an option to retain the old functionality I'd sure prefer it. I do undestand there was a need to switch to the new system.

To remedy the situation on my own for now I am just bookmarking each thread and then unsubscribing to them when I receive the emails. It will work itself out over time. I only have about 1200 +/- to switch over to bookmarks. :D :eek:

I actually like to get emails from all my subscribed threads -- I'm only subscribed to about 550 or so :) and of course most of them are inactive. I've set up a filter which diverts the notifications from my inbox to their own folder.

But my problem is, I'm not getting emails from threads I subscribed to in the old forums. I don't believe I've got a single email except from the ones I've newly subscribed to. Are you guys still getting emails when someone comments on a thread you haven't visited since the forum change? It looks like I'm going to have to resubscribe to all of them... right after I convert a couple of hundred forum reference URLs I've bookmarked in Chrome from the old forum addresses to the new ones... :o
