There was a situation where I replied to a thread and then someone replied to me and I didn't get an alert. Usually I get an alert in that situation. What reason could there be for me not getting an alert?
im pretty sure its some sort of bug, had a lot of members in the last year complaining about it but i never was able to figure out the issue so i dropped it since it is not a big dealThe most common explanation for this is that they haven't yet viewed the thread again since they last got an alert.
i am not talking about watched alerts because i have those disabled, some members would get lets say (5) alerts, but when they open up the alerts, its only 2 new onesIt's unlikely to be a bug with XF at least.
It's really not something we get a lot of reports of so, if anything, it would likely be an add-on conflict.
I have over 7,000 watched threads here and the only time I've not had an alert is when I have received an alert, not visited the thread, and then not had repeated alerts, which is by design.
This isn't necessarily true. If you get an alert and don't read the thread, the alert will potentially be removed but the thread will still be unread (and you won't get another alert). Vice versa, if you read the thread immediately, the alert will still exist but the unread thread won't be listed.If you compare the Unread watched threads and the alert list, you see he isn't getting all alerts. Its plain as day. Those 2 lists should be the same.
