I’m not sure when exactly this started happening, but I’ve noticed I’m no longer getting an alert when I’m @mentioned in a post. Likes and quotes, yes, but not mentions. What’s going on? Here are my settings. Any ideas?

Ooooh, weird. I noticed an alert as I went to another page, but then it went away. I tapped the alert icon, and your mention shows up. It’s the only one for a good while, and I have stumbled across multiple mentions since I first noticed it (including earlier today) that do not show up in the alerts list and never did.

Very strange.

I got alerted for this because I’ve been good.

Argh! I got an alert for that one. Inconsistencies?

It appears the only alerts I have gotten are in this thread. Maybe some sorcery behind the scenes.

Perhaps you forgot to send in your renewal checks. You can mail them payable to me.

Its dependent on when the @ is posted and when you are on. I notice the same thing.

Your astrologer may be able to explain this depending on what house the @ is in.

@System I'm not sure what the deal is because I have been receiving them without issues.

Can you give me an exact post where it did not alert you?

Does this behavior go against the server's alert settings?

That’s good new information. I’ll keep an eye on it for now.

The specific behavior I was referring to in that post was different than the initial concern, but basically the alert icon had a 1 on it, but when I tapped a different thread it disappeared as though the alert were marked read. Weird, but at least when I looked at the list, it showed up (as read, but still).

Here’s an example of a post with a mention that doesn’t show up in my list (and I never saw except by stumbling across it), even though it should: https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/75861/

I do notice that’s an Advanced thread. The only stab in the dark, and only because @System is saying he’s experiencing it, too, is that maybe somehow it has something to do with us both having been banned for a period, and maybe the removals were somehow incomplete? I have no idea if that is a completely retarded notion or if it may have some merit. Just the only possible common thread I can see so far.
