    Hello, I dunno who I should I ask, whenever I post a reply in any thread, I do not receive any notification when someone else later on posts on the same thread. Is there any particular setting for that?

    Yeah so? Here I can see the list of threads that I am subscribed to. I know that list, and I can see the list of threads I have subscribed to when I click on Settings. But the point is, I do not get any notification when someone posts a reply after my post on a thread. For example, when private parts posted on this thread above, I did not know it. I manually checked the list of my subscribed threads and there I saw that private parts has commented on this thread. Does this happen with everybody? Now I am commenting on this thread, Private Parts and Alternatesword, how do you know that I have commened here, do you have to check manually each and every thread?

    Oh okay, so you mean that is how it works over here? coz I have to do the same...And another thing, I found this in Settings>General Settings .. Can you tell me what have you entered here?

    Default Thread Subscription Mode: When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.

    I have never received one email notification in 4 years. Obviously that function is disabled in the forum software.

    it's not disabled, it's just not the default

    to OP: at the top of every thread you can click on Thread Tools/Subscribe to this Thread, there are 4 options to choose from, you may have chosen the weekly email by mistake or the control panel notifications, when you don't get any emails

    I have tried daily emails and instant emails, but the result is the same. I have not selected control panel or weekly email. I have to manually check every thread that I subscribe.

    uff... you should contact to moderator. Because i get instant email if anyone reply on my thread. Did you change email id ever? If yes, check if it is right or miss spelled. Thank you.

    I have done that too, but I only receive an email when someone sends me a private message, but not when someone replies on a thread where I have commented...
