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

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
