    I scanned back a couple pages to avoid a duplicate inquiry. So forgive me if this has already been reported.:)

    Am I the only BYCer who is having an issue receiving alerts on followed threads?
    Hard to completely explain but I have narrowed it down to a few recent examples.
    1. If I welcome new members (which I do a lot), I get all the alerts. For that day, next day and so on.
    2. If I reply to any thread, I will receive alerts on that day and not the next. (on/off) without consistency.
    3. Threads I create.. never the next day. Only on the day of posting.
    This is not rant or complaint in the least bit. just curious if I am one of the few who are experiencing this bug. I am a member of BYH & TEG and don't have the slightest problem with those sister sites.
    I have started several threads in different categories so I have eliminated the possibility of it being category related.
    But I do find myself falling behind on some of my feeds from a lack of seeing "a string tied around my finger" to remind me of my threads I wish to follow.
    I have turned off the email feature to save me from becoming buried with emails, so I can't tell you if that aspect is effected.

    I never log out. So I don't feel that it is a COOKIE issue.
    Only once in a blue moon, I erase data if my browser slows down.. but that is rare.
    I am experiencing this anomaly on both Android & Windows-Firefox browsers so I also eliminated the possibility of it just being my browser since Android & Windows are worlds apart.

    Any-Hoot, thought I'd throw this little situation on the table and perhaps I am not the only one noticing this little issue.

    This is kind of like an experiment as well. Today I should receive alerts on the thread, but will I tomorrow? I will follow up tomorrow with my findings..

    If you have unread posts, it won't give you an alert. It only pops up the first time a new post comes in and any further unread posts will be silent. Are you sure that isn't what's happening?
