    Default Not receiving email notifications of new posts in subscribed threads

    I am not sure if this is the right place to report this, but I am not receiving email notifications of new posts in my subscribed threads. The threads in question have "Instant" notification selected and I have received notifications for many years now, so I am familiar with how they are supposed to work.

    Is there something wrong, or do I need to re-do something? Thanks!

    I still got mine today.

    I had the same thing a few months ago, but at the end of the month and then it was a question of exceeding the quota of send messages according to the mods.

    Haven't received any since last Thursday. I think something like this has happened a couple of times, then I suddenly get a bunch of emails at once.

    Last Thursday was my most recent as well. Specifically 3:23 UK time, when Rockphed posted in the Girl Genius thread. I hope the Playground isn't doing what Youtube did and quietly dropping email notifications without a proper announcement.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    They're not dropping notifications altogether, I'm still getting mine without issues.

    Update: found the issue, and it was at my end: gmail decided that the update emails where spam, and had been sending them all to the spam folder. Thankfully, telling it that they are not has reversed the problem for now, and I am getting the emails into the main inbox again.

    Not the same issue - my email has been good for a long time and I check my Junk Mail/Spam and they aren't there. Still haven't gotten notification emails on my subscribed threads.

    Was just coming here to post the very same thing.

    I checked a thread I am subscribed too and was surprised to see posts. As new as yesterday and today.

    Checked my email. Nothing.

    Checked Spam. Nothing there.

    Trash? Nothing there.

    Searched All Mail including trash and spam for the word "Stick" in the last 30 days.

    An email from about a week and a half ago.

    So yeah - I can confirm - no longer getting notification emails.

    Also not sending me an email notification when I get a DM/Private Message on here. I have a private message right now (Notifications: 1) - that I never got an email for.

    Just got a bunch of emails today. Hopefully that means things are fixed. I will update to confirm.

    Edit: Got a new alert later in the day. The problem looks to be resolved for now. Thank you!

    Me too (first one at 6AM BST, if anyone's curious). Glad to see the issue resolved.
