    Sometimes I get notifications when someone like a past and sometimes not. Don't get any other kind of notification though.

    I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

    by "tagged" I'm referring to these --> @Whiskey

    edit to add - using firefox in windows. I dunno if it's working or not for me in tapatalk. I don't use it enough to be able to tell if those alerts are still coming through or not

    Testing to see if copy/pasting the screen name instead of typing it out after the @ symbol makes a difference.
    Anybody get the tag on the forum?

    Likewise. All I got was the new reply notice

    Edit- just checked Tapatalk and (like my laptop) all it got was the reply notice.

    Sometimes receiving notifications in email and sometimes not. Occasionally a blast comes through with all notifications. This is for watched threads, conversations or tags. Basically all notifications. Right now they seem to be working fine.

    Still having notification issues here. Sometimes they work and other times not. Today many missed notifications and see them on the site but no email.

    Yes, my notifications are turned on. I intermittently receive notifications. This started back when there was a VJ post about changing the email provider.

    I'm actually subscribed to Smokies pic of the day thread and i quit getting notifications for that a while back.

    but i do get notifications if someone posts in the news and media section.

    so some sections work for me and others don't.

    There is no set pattern to anything. Sometimes the notifications for anything just stop. there has also been times that after notifications stopped coming all of a sudden a blast comes thru with 10 or more.

    i notice some strange behavior too. i havnt posted in the handcheck thread in ages, or looked at it. havnt had a notification/alert from it in a long time too (though i occasionally get one). today i checked it and started getting alerts for the posts that came in after i got caught up. it seems to happen with some of the social threads too. i rarely post in them, and sometimes i dont keep up with them at all. alerts can go quiet. the music thread, on the other hand, i always frequent, and it feels like i get an alert for every single post in it.

    i get alerts here when i have been tagged (with an @mach1ne) as well as quotes and replies. those conditions happen pretty rarely and im pretty sure i havnt missed one.

    i also tried to turn off email notifications for watched threads, and i still get tons of emails. im not sure if im getting emails for the notifications that get missed here or not, but it sure isnt doing what its supposed to...(i still have site/admin emails enabled, but definitely not for watched threads).

    Just an FYI to anyone that uses Tapatalk. Any issues you have on there, are Tapatalk's issue, not VU.

    Correct. I spoke with them and they said they fixed the issue of multiple alerts. Their servers were overloaded

    I never thought about taptalk being the culprit in some cases.
    Good thinking Huck:)

    As far as not getting them here, I'm not sure, but I know if I don't post in a thread for a bit, I stop getting them, OR, if I pass up a notification, I'll stop getting them. The only other thought is that if you've seen your alerts on Tapatalk, it might see them as viewed, here, already.

    As far as anyone with Tapatalk issues, we're not related. Those would be Tapatalk issues.

    Maybe someone else has other thoughts on that.

    They are alerts in threads that I am always active in and the Tapatalk notifications havent even been opened yet. Is there a dev for the site?

    We have a tech team that keeps up with this subforum. He might be at work right now, though.

    I have a problem where if I follow threads that I'm interested in that are really popular (for instance: @SMOKIE pic of the day thread) I will get notifications for a few days and then they will just stop and I'll never get one again.

    Go to Alert Preferences in your profile to be sure the appropriate boxes are all checked.

    Dang! I've over 1,000 posts/event I still need to catch up on. How do I make that stop! I love it when I receive something quoted, liked or in an interesting thread, but I'm missing something here.
