Happened to me few months back. Worked properly one day once since then..but stopped working abruptly. Now does not function at all. SB has no control over it. Only suggestion he gave me was to change email address to new one.

Changing email address would be a right pain for me for various reasons Facepalm
Looks like I will just have to make do without the feature then Sad

Bumping because it’s happening to me too Sad Not that I mind having to come here and check on what’s new (which I always enjoy) but worrisome if by chance I forget and miss a GB I’ve signed up for Angry

Well I just got 2 on threads I just posted in so maybe it’s fixed? But I’ll wait till later to be sure it’s working on the older threads I keep up with before I rescind my complaint.

Off to work now for more money to spend on flashlights Big Smile

Hi everyone, sorry for the trouble that some are having. I’m not personally experiencing any problems, and I haven’t made any changes to the BLF notifications configuration, but I don’t deny that it’s happening to others. Unfortunately issues with email are virtually impossible to debug, as email in general is the most arcane and chaotic technology that I’ve had the misfortune of working with. It will probably resolve itself sooner or later. As always, check your spam folder, and please let me know if any BLF notifications ever appear there. Thanks!

I like getting new post notifications even when I am logged on.

By default, this is disabled.

See the third option below:

Actually that option doesn’t do anything at the moment, you should always receive 1 notification until you re-visit the thread, whether you are logged in or not.

Yeh, sorry to say my notifications died several months back. Then for half a day they came back…then departed for good. Dunno what happened. It’s good I visit BLF every day ..don’t miss much of anything that way. Big Smile

Hi Streamer, I really do apologize for the trouble. I’ve always had trouble with the cable ISP email providers like yours, and basically it’s their fault. Smile If possible could you try switching your BLF address to an alternate email provider such as Gmail or Outlook?

Gmail doesn’t help- that’s what I’ve got and I always check my spam folder at least daily before deleting those messages. And from that you can see that it’s happening to me again. I get messages from threads where I post for about a day then they vanish again.

Not a big deal really, but as I’m interested in and subbed on numerous threads, the email alerts made keeping up with everything easy. I’ll just visit more often and dig back to see what’s happened since my last visit. No need to apologise SB, you’re doing fine. BLF is still the greatest thing since sliced bread topped with lettuce, a slice of homegrown tomato, and lots of bacon Big Smile
