Reply notification?

I have set the personal option to have me notified by email whenever (supposedly) I get a reply to a posting. I've got them for threads that I have started, but not for replies to my contributions to other peoples threads. Is that the way it is supposed to work?

Just wondering. Right now I have to remember each thread to which I ever posted and check on them to see if anyon responded to me. Maybe it's just my misunderstanding of the FAQ info.

I am pretty certain the way it works is you get emailed only if someone clicks the "reply" button on the post you made. As I am writing this in the window at the bottom of the screen, you wouldn't get a message..... (continued below)

.... (continued) this time, I clicked "reply" to your posting. So I think you should have received an email for this posting.

Let me know if I'm right, cuz this is just a guess!!'

OK. Thanks. I had already selected some subjects, but didn't stop to think there was probably a difference between that and the thread subscription button below.

Good question, Ken, and clever of you to figure that out, Big Wheels! This is something I had wondered about too, but never worked out - there seemed to be no consistency about it. I usually write my reply straight in the box at the bottom of the page, because I want to be able to see what I am replying to, and because it's quicker and seems less "committed" (I am often ambivalent about whether to reply). Now I know that if I want responses I should click on the button (I did just now, practically for the first time), or actively subscribe, as BIG suggested.

Another question....

How does the reply emailing and the sender's Ignore list interact? I would assume the receiver's Ignore list would filter replies (hopefully?) but what about the sender's list....? I know this might be a rare occasion that someone got excited about a buddy's reply when the thread starter is on their ignore list..... Doe any of this make sense??????


Ken

P.S., thanks for all the good info so far!

My understanding is, if you subscribe to a thread, and there is a post in the thread, then you will receive notification of a new post. When you actually VIEW the thread, the ignored person's posts would be blocked.

I hope this makes sense.

Yeah, I think so.

I've noticed something else....

I have email notification set in my profile, but I don't get them automatically when I post. When I edit my message after posting, I see the email notification flag is not set. I now have to edit a post after submitting it to get the flag set, each time I post.

This is very puzzling....

I have one idea so far -- I don't have login cookies set, so I have to login each time (paranoia). Are user prefs loaded into the login cookie and looked up there -- and ONLY there?

Ken

Hmmm -- very puzzling. I am editing this post to check the email flag -- it is now set to match my preference. It wasn't set for my earlier two messages today -- very suspicious......

The only way preferences are "remembered" is if you have cookies enabled from the forums.
