    While hardly a crisis, it seems that only a random ~70% of new posts to watched threads (including my own threads) generate alerts...

    Or any other{s} whom it may concern

    Despite multiple 'new' posts to same, 'watched thread alerts' have ceased entirely over the past 48 hours:( - please advise...

    Many advance thanks!:)

    Hi HP,

    I have come across this same issue very frequently lately. I think the email alerts are sent out using a time-based function (every 10 minutes, for example) but I could be wrong.

    If you're referring to the alerts here on the site, try refreshing your page more frequently. I don't think the red notification number pops up unless you refresh the page.

    Thanks for your response!
    I am referring to on-list alerts -- I've (intentionally) 'opted out' of email alerts...

    'Alert events' occurring while I am logged-off or inactive are 'lost' (i.e. neither reported nor listed) during subsequent sessions...

    Best regards
    HP
