Timely reminder in view of recent message ................

" By the way sorry for not coming back to the thread but I didn't get an alert. "

This thread is to warn people that notifications are not sent by GR about any new postings on any thread. Many sites do do this, and therefore newbies to the boards often seem to expect that service on GR.

My Watched Threads was a "new" thing introduced last August ......... and it was supposed to have been disabled by GR soon after that because people were complaining about getting multiple notices about a new posting. Not only multiple postings on one day, but repeated for 2 or 3 days afterwards :-D

"They" said it would be disabled until it was fixed.

I have not heard that it was fixed!

Use My Threads instead ................... that shows all threads on which you have posted, and basically does the same thing as My Watched Threads except for the email notification.

Just found this thread and am now confused cos I get emails about some of my watched threads, at times multiple ones about the same thread, and dont get any about others :-S
i am just going to "untick" the box and "watch" them myself at least that way I wont have a dozen emails about the same posting :-)

I am ......(said quietly)
Just thought I'd crack the whip a bit !

Did he ever back back to either of you to say that he now understands the situation ?


SylviaInCanada Report 23 Mar 2012 02:41

no, we haven't been upsetting the natives!

we've been trying to prove to him that your thread is not his thread

you should be proud of us!

Oi, what's been going on while I've been away ?
You two been upsetting the natives ?

I do hope that Michael now understands that once you contribute to a thread it becomes "one of your threads"

It would help if people actually read the opening post instead of jumping to the wrong conclusion.

what on earth did you do to that poor bunny??????
