View Full Version : [Resolved] Email notification from moved threads?

01-30-2003, 11:30 PM
Something that I have been meaning to ask for quite some time is why don't we get email notification if we posted before a thread was moved?

Some recent examples:

http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=18820 was moved to Stop Scum

http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20102 was moved to Business Principles

http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20107 was moved to Making Money with CPA Programs

The first two I didn't post in again after they were moved and received no notification, but the third one I did and I got notification only after I had reposted. :confused:

Hi Jan,

Let me take a stab at this. If you subscribe to a thread which you can confirm in your CP, it works like this:

If another member posts to the thread after you have subscribed, you should get an email.

After you view the thread the procedure starts over. New posts by other members to the thread after you have viewed it should generate an email to you.

As you can see, the email notices are not triggered by your post, but rather by another members post.

Edit: Please see:

You are not understanding me Steve :) After they are moved and more people post, I don't get notification unless I post again in that thread. An example is the the first one on that list. Alison and Czar both posted in that yesterday and I didn't get notification. That was moved after I had posted.

The last one on the list, I wasn't notified that sub had replied after it was moved, but when I posted again I started to get notifications.

Thank you for the clarrification and help.

Please see our test thread at:


Sorry...I am unable to duplicate your issue so I'm going to close this thread.

This could be an intermittent issue and I will research this for you. No response from me means I did not discover anything.

Another thing that might cause this is a less than perfect email account but I'm not sure. I see bounced mail from members who subscribe to threads every day and thus they never recieve.

Also, some of the anti-spam client software and services which members use can and does deleate the email notify which the BB sends.

I don't recall any bounces from your account but I will monitor this for you. If and only if I dioscover something, I will open this thread and post.

Thanks again :)
