Yeah I had noticed that. You're probably right about inactivity, but if I got a notification then I would become active in my watched threads.. catch 22 situation
Happens to me to and I can't figure out why. As soon as I visit the watched thread, I start getting notifications.
My theory is that if you get a notification alert and ignore it, then they stop alerting you until you visit that thread again.
I did that but thought I was still getting emails maybe they were old unread ones because I haven't received an email due to this thread. Maybe it took a second for that setting to apply.Go under "preferences" and uncheck the box that says "Receive e-mail notifications of replies"
Must I unsubscribe from all emails every time I post in a new thread?
I disabled email alerts after a week of using FC, and a few of the threads that I followed PRIOR to disabling alerts still alert me via email when someone replies to those threads.
Doesn't bother me, but thought the info may help
Sometimes this happens to me when I think I've read through the most recent post in a given thread, but it turns out there's one or two more on a new page that I missed. XenForo then won't mark the thread as read, and so it won't notify you of new posts.
