Question About E-mail Notification Of Topic Reply
0

9 posts in this topic

I'm just wondering why I get e-mail notifications for most of the topics I am subscribed to, but not ALL. I have noticed that there is some inconsistency regardng this issue, and since there are so many posts, I can't possibly read them all, but I do like to read the replies to the ones I have posted in. I have estimated that I get an e-mail for about 9 out of 10, but usually it is that 10th one that I really need to answer! Then I accidently trip over the reply a week or so later and I feel bad that it took me so long to get back to that person... <_<

I assume that it is an automated response, but since I am signed up to get e-mail notification, shouldn't it send ALL of them...or is it just a computer glitch?

Does this problem affect anyone else? I guess I just needed to get it off my chest, I don't expect that anyone can actually fix the problem... :rolleyes:

God bless,

Mariann

I've had that happen...sort of. I get notified of replies to one topic every now and then...and then I don't get notified for some posts...and then it works again later.

I don't really use that feature, though, since I check MANY, MANY times per day...so I just view new posts every time.

I use the "view new posts" feature all the time, too. But I do rely on the e-mail notification, since I check my e-mail all the time, but I don't always have time to check the message board. This feature tells me about the replies that I have gotten to the topics I am interested in. It also helps remind me that I shouldn't neglect my moderator duties for too long. ;)

Here is an example of what I'm talking about. Today on my statistics topic, I did NOT get an e-mail telling me that Jessica replied, but then later I DID get one telling me that Kaiti replied. I get frustrated by that kind of stuff. Why didn't it tell me about Jessica's reply?? Anyhow, that's what's going on with me...

God bless,

Mariann

That's exactly what happens to me sometimes...like I said, I don't subscribe to many topics, but the with the ones I do, it does the same thing.

It happened again just now with your reply Jessica. Man this is getting bad! If it hadn't have happened to me with other people I would think it was just blocking your replies! :huh: I don't think it is anything personal against you, but it isn't letting me know about your replies today! <_<

God bless,

Did it mention my reply that came right before Jessica's? Maybe it has some strange policy where it only mentions one reply, knowing that you'll check back for my reply and see hers. And then once you've read those, they'll notify you of the next reply that you haven't read? Trying to figure out the twisted logic of the automated mail message ;):lol:

When I get email notification, the message tells me there may be other replies, but I will only be told about one. Maybe that is what is happening.

celiac3270, It did send me one for your reply, which I checked a few minutes after you posted it. But Jessica had not posted yet. So I would have expected another e-mail when she posted more than 20 minutes later after I checked it...

I don't know why it is doing this. It is just annoying. I do know that it will only send one even if there have been multiple replies, but I don't know how long it is before it will send another one. There might be a time limit on how quickly it sends you another one and maybe it doesn't really keep track on whether you checked it or not...

God bless,

Mariann

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
