My Alerts Are Irregular

    I don't know if it is just me or what, but...When I choose to watch threads, I will get an alert(s) as new posts are added to the thread, but only for a brief period of time, or just randomly. As time goes on, I no longer get alerts and will stumble upon a watched thread and see that there are days worth of posts that I was never alerted to. These are threads that I am still watching and a haven't set to unwatch. Is it just me or something else or just random odd behaviour?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried these? I hear they help with irregular things.

    I don't. Maybe you all have withholds you need to deal with. Report to Ethics.

    Still a problem, and would be nice to have it solved, helps in moderation.

  14. BUmpty bump. It's difficult to volunteer in NMA when your alerts don't say there has been any activity

    My 2 cents:
    - Use the "Watch thread" button in a thread you want to follow (it is automatic if you post); then follow these threads using the "Watched threads" menu.
    - Limit your alerts to replies to your posts (in the Settings); the number of alerts will drop and you will know when Herro decided to be a pain in the neck.
    - Use the "What's new" menu for recents posts.

    TL;DR Far from perfect but that is how I handle it.

    O hai gais. Didn't think it was necessary to create a whole new thread but every now and again I'm finding that I'm getting alerts for messages anything up to 30 mins after I actually recieve the message. People I PM are also complaining about this. Ideas?

    My guess is that we should blame Scientology & L. Ron Hubbard.
  21. It appears to be a global condition that the XF software is in at the present time.

    It is my understanding that Da5id is away, and can't tweak the code to better performance at the present time. Patience is recommended until that happens. :)
