    I have recently noticed that I don't always get an alert when new posts are added to threads I am watching. Sometimes I get an alert, sometimes I don't. Nothing to get worked up about, just an FYI.

    Not sure what is going on here. Unless it creates a real problem this will be looked at after the XenForo lawsuit.

    It can wait, Jon. No worries.

    Agreed. No big deal. It comes and goes. Recently, I've been getting all the e-mail notices (I think). A few weeks ago, it was hit or miss.

    I think it alerts you once, then waits for you to visit the thread before re-alerting you about new posts to avoid filling your inbox with multiple alerts.

    Cheers, Ted

    ^ no, it's not that kind of behavior, which I am use to. Recently, I frequently see threads that I am watching pop up on the What's New page w/o any corresponding alert.
