Watched Topics - 300 Topics Limit? Notifications not Arriving [SOLVED] Empty Watched Topics - 300 Topics Limit? Notifications not Arriving [SOLVED]

Post by Sim Architect on Wed 16 Sep 2015, 06:06

Hi there!

I would just like to let you know that I found something funny that I feel is also important:  The Forum stops to add new topics "you reply to" on your "watch list" after you reach 300 of them!

Is that a hard limit or is there anything wrong that I should fix on my profile (besides unmarking old posts)? I just felt something was "off" when I stopped getting notifications, I was all like "OMG, is the Forum Dead? affraid ", then I remembered that I actually saw new stuff that should have been "notified to me", but it wasn't WhatDidUJustCallMe? 

Since I saw no post on the subject, here I am opening this topic, which can serve as a future reference (for helpers or users too?)...

Hi,

I'm not sure, as I've never used that "Watch list". But it is very well possible that there's a hard limit, as that's also the case with the post search option. You can only go "back in time" for a certain amount of posts. It's a database limit, and for as far as I know they do not plan on changing it.

Hi! Still not getting notifications Sad

I don't use that query usually, I just look at my notifications area to see what's more important/urgent (topics I already replied to, so I can follow up them before doing anything else).

Usually, when I posted or replied to a topic, like this, for example, the forum would automatically subscribe me to it, meaning I would get notifications of replies on the top right of the screen (Notifications Area), anytime someone posted in it, so I would be able to focus on the topics I am already "in" first, before having to go through the entire Forum looking for new stuff.

Since a couple of weeks ago I feel this feature stopped working, which will make it much harder to "follow posts" in the future. I will try to click "Watch this topic for replies" somewhere else to see if now we have to do it manually or if the entire functionality is broken, because it was an automatic feature before.

Thanks!

Thanks! I just did that to see what happens (even though it says it will send me an email instead of a regular notification). Let's hope it works and I get regular notifications on replies like before Smile

I'll keep you posted!

Thank you! This one worked like a charm!

Let's have some sleeping tea! See you tomorrow!!

Tea 4 Tea 4

Problem solved, topic (not) closed (I guess I can't close topics here, sorry, but I put the "solved" above, anyway). Even though the system mentions "email" in that preference, thanks God it DOES NOT send email, but just reestablish the notifications, which is just perfect!

Thanks a lot, Admin, you unbroke my access!!!

All hail King Tea! All hail King Tea!
