Email Notification


While I like being able to know when a thread has a new response, it can be a bit cumbersome on your inbox if your away fro a day or two.

Isnt the notification feature supposed to only notify you once if there is a post, cause I have been getting 5-6 or more emails re: any post. And, i am not checking the post in between emails being sent, so i should only be getting one right?. Just a thought.

Anyhow, I'd just like to say thanks to all you guys who keep this place up to the level it is. What a wonderful resource! thanks. Louis

I think it measures whether you have visited the site as a whole not just the thread. I know some of the other sites are that way.

Jeremy, correct me if I am wrong here.

Glad it is quiet tonight. I got to learn how to ssh. site admin requires learning.

Ah yes, could be.... since the first, I have gotten about 350-400 emails from LQ and i know i have not gone to all those threads all those times. So, you may be right, cause I'm sure i log a couple times a day....atleast.

BTW: this is an observation, not a complaint.

Just to clarify, dalek is correct. You will receive a notification if you have visited the board (not the thread).

I know, It occasionally sneeks up on us when we least expect it...
