    OT Why do my email subscription alerts no longer work?

    I have not received an email alert since the 10th March that a subscribed thread has got a new reply! This is now beyond irritating and has negated my use of this forum as I can't 'join in' any longer. Can a 'mod' suggest a way to kick start it back into action?

    (Settings still remain as alerts checked and notify instantly via email)

    You might have better response posting this in the Site Issues and Support forum.

    I’ll check the other forum as well, but I wanted to note that I discovered around the same time frame that I was no longer getting RSS feed updated from the various forums I subscribe to (I generally read them all via a feed reader, rather than on the site itself). Wondering if this is a product of the same issue, since the emailing would be powered by some similar syndication. I went back and re-added all the feeds, which seem to be working again.

    Re: OT Why do my email subscription alerts no longer work?

    Okey dokey folks, after nearly 10 years, I will now delete all my 'watchuseek' bookmarks as I've stumbled upon a fault with the forum which apparently cannot be fixed. At the start of this thread, I stated that I now no longer receive email alerts of any posts, or subscribed threads. It can't be fixed. It's such a shame as over the last 10 years I have really enjoyed my participation on here, and there are some great contributors. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it... Stephen

    Would you be able to use Tapatalk on your phone. I'm using an older Android version of it and it works like a charm. I'm getting all the notifications that you are missing and I don't create any double posts either. This older version does not bother you with much advertisements (there are some, but not too noticeable). Picture posting is super easy too. I think you would be very pleased with the whole worry free experience.

    LOL, you are kind... My 12 year old Nokia wouldn't even know what to do with a Tapatalk, neither would I. Thanks for making me smile...

    Well, here is an idea. You could buy a used Samsung S4 (cheap) and put an older version of Tapatalk on it. It goes on (installs) very easy, have no worries, but if you like you can ask me questions and I can guide you through. You won't need a phone plan and you don't need to use it as phone. It can work over your existing WiFi. Hmm - you have WiFi right?

    I've been wrestling with IT issues for several weeks ( can't login from certain sub-forums, getting logged out when switching sub-forums, etc., etc., etc...). I think the powers that be have thrown in the towel in trying to "FIX" this and all issues therein...
