    I just came from a thread that I subscribed to this morning and found a handful of new posts that I was not notified of in my e-mail. Is their a problem with this feature?

    I don't get it? I recieved notification of Scott's post above, so it seems as though threads that i've subscribed to are unsubscribing themselves at some point without me unsubscribing from them!? [​IMG]

    I am not sure why all of a sudden you would stop getting email notifications for threads that you have subscribed to. You should be getting them all.

    Did anything get changed out on your end like a new computer?

    Parker,
    negative, no new computer and everything is the same. I don't get it either. It's no big deal I guess, but I prefer to use my e-mail to update me on new posts so that I don't have to keep logging into the forum all the time.

    Strange.

    I checked with the vBulletin.org site and I found several threads there that complain about this very thing with no solutions on fixing it.

    I did modify the script to allow for emails to be sent out each time someone responds to a thread that you are subscribed to but there appears to be something else,that no one can figure out,that "times out" these subscribed threads for no reason.

    I wish I could give you a better explanation than that but this appears to be a problem with vBulletin itself.

    Thanks Parker. Also note that this problem just started happening recently, i'd say within the past few days or so, before that everything was fine. I'm still receiving notifications, I just have to remember to check up on those threads every now and then.
