It's probably a code issue of some type. I've not had replies for about a year now. Kinda annoying at first, but nothing at all is wrong at my end?

Likewise. I thought we'd just stopped doing that?

It hasn't been working right for a long time. We've had multiple threads on it, but the issue can't seem to be resolved. It appears to be a problem with the forum code, so we'll have to wait for fixes in subsequent versions.
There are a lot of email services that see emails generated by forums as junk/bulk mail.

I seem to remember being told that if you put (in this case) in your address book the emails will make it through to your inbox rather then getting lost/dumped in your junk/bulk mail...

No problem in recieving the Email notifications.. it is just that the "active" link to the topic ID is missing.. it is plain text. Prior to this, the link was underlined, with the color and pointer change when hovering over the supplied link, and the color change if right-clicked. That has changed.

There is a check box at the bottom of the page for a topic.. "Notify me when a reply is posted". If checked, test an Email to yourself to see if it is sent to you. The response is automated, but there is possibly a code problem with the page format.
Was just curious, didn't want to "wake" everyone up!!

As of Nov. 15th, the active links have returned, miraculously! And links from previous days have also become active! Eerie!!

I have not gotten any replies for about a week now. First time they ever stopped. My profile is checked to receive replies and can't think of anything that would have stopped them.
