    For the past several days, I am no longer getting email notifications of new posts in threads I'm subscribed to nor am I getting emails for new PMs. I only know that there are new posts when I check the "today's topics" and if I see that I have a message in the "messages" box in the upper right of the page. If I don't happen to look there, I never know that I have a new message. Going into those threads, I can still see that I'm subscribed and even UNsubscribing and re-subcribing does nothing.

        I too was not getting them. And now I notice that I'm unable to edit any of my posts.

          I've had the same problem that xviper wrote about, I've had that problem for 6 months or better now. I'll keep an eye out to see if I start getting e-mail notifications again. I haven't seen one in weeks.

            Pat, there is a 12 hour time limit on post edits. If you need to edit a post after the 12 hour limit you can contact a moderator or PM me directly.

              Dave - Xviper's issue was related to a Hobby Squawk mail server issue which was affecting all users. That has been corrected. Your issue is directly related to your email address. I will send you a private message with more details.

                Any particular reason why? Sometimes I find that I need to go back to a post and update some information, especially on a thread I start. For example, I wanted to post some updated info on my first post of the Avios C-130 thread, but couldn't.

                  Since my earlier post here, there have been 6 posts and I have not received any notifications of these new posts. Yet, oddly enough, since I posted this, a couple of emails have come for those threads but not for the many other new posts in various threads. I have not received any new messages so can't comment on that.

                    Depending on forum traffic the notifications are sometimes sent in batches. So you may receive a notification several hours after someone posts or comments.

                      1 hour was the default setting but we increased it to 12 hours to give people plenty of time to edit. I believe the generally accepted theory in the forum world is that allowing too much time to edit can negatively impact the integrity of the overall thread and subsequent discussions. For example, If you post a message that says "what's your favorite type of Pizza" you will get a series of replies with people's favorite type of pizza. Then if you go back and change the post to say "What's your favorite type of ice cream?" the replies from your original post wont make sense because they will all be referencing pizza types. When a new user sees the thread they will be totally confused. It's a silly example but it highlights generally why forums have editing time limits. I could be wrong but I think most of the other hobby forums have similar limits.

                      If this is a huge issue for people I'd like to know and we can definitely investigate increasing the limit.

                        The notifications have started to come again.

                              But its not a flag against your account. Its a notice that something in the forum section you frequent got flagged.
