    I'm watching threads on Xenforo.com, but I don't receive anymore any alerts when a message has been posted. Has something changed? Am I the only one?

    If you ignore an alert once, future alerts dont come.
    You have to manually visit the thread again to restart the alerts.

    Maybe there should be 2 alert options:
    Alerts as we know them.
    Alerts - permanent. (especially useful for addon authors, etc.).
     
    Jake Bunce and cclaerhout like this.

    Oh thank you ! I didn't know this. You're right, a two alert options would be useful!

    To avoid it, you need to click on all your alerts that you want to keep receiving !

    Someone posts this question about once every 2 weeks.
    No one knows about it ... except those people that *REALLY* want to follow a thread (like a thread author).

    Might it help if Xenforo had Syndol-like bookmarks ?

    Ok I understand know, I've received by email and by pm. After having seen an email I might not have click on the alert.

    Didn't see it. Sorry.

    It's not you.
    It's Xenforo.
