Re: Notifications

Just as an FYI, people still get multiple e-mail notifications if a post is edited, as discussed in this thread.  So, if I edit this post, anyone who "subscribes" to e-mail notifications for this thread will get a second e-mail on that edit and a third e-mail if I edit it again.  This should not happen in a well-run forum.

 

Another concern is that I do not get notified (in the forum notifications) if someone posts a lone question/comment  and then a Rogers mod moves it to a thread to which I am subscribed (I subscribe to threads where I am a participant).  I'm not sure if anything can be done about that, but it would be nice if I did get notification if a post gets moved into a thread to which I subscribe.

Re: Notifications

That would explain why I see multiple duplicate notifications. After I go through the Notifications I check the forums I follow for new posts. But if a post gets moved to a forum I don't follow, I wouldn't see it. If one of my own posts gets moved to another forum, I do get a notification.

Re: Notifications

Numerous forum members keep posting in many unrelated threads they keep getting Post Edit notifications despite all they want is to be notified of New Posts ONLY in subscribed threads. Recently Post Edit options were even entirely removed from forum Settings, thus attempting to misrepresent this endless flow of Post Edit spam emails as New Post notices.  I don't believe this issue was ever solved. Thus I ask to remove "Solved" tag from this thread topic, since this tag is obviously misleading as different members outlined varying aspects of Notifications in this thread, and most remain unsolved.

 

Hope, they will be in fact solved shortly, since currently this issue of getting endless Post Edit notifications was escalated to Rogers Advisory Board. I believe the flow of Post Edit spam emails violates Canada Anti-spam Law, and is reportable (and will be reported shortly if continues) to Spam Reporting Center and CRTC. Its unfortunate, nothing was done to stop it for several years despite numerous forum staff promises to the opposite.

Re: Notifications

Is there something wrong with Notifications today?  I have not received any notifications (the "Bell" on the website under my Icon, or my direct link to notifications) regarding posts today, despite there being "action" in some threads where I have participated.   Notifications were working fine yesterday.

 

I have "Automatically subscribe me to all topics or reviews I participate in" turned "on" and have not made any setting changes...

Re: Notifications

Thanks @OLDYELLR : I'm seeing notifications again. There must have been a glitch because I got a notification for one earlier thread, but there were two earlier 4K threads (one in TV, one in Accounts)  where I didn't get a notification. Those are the ones I remember - there may have been more.

 

I got notification for the recent PAYGo posts. (I know you follow that too.)
