    Did TalkBass get hacked or something today???

    I wake up to 64 emails from old and current threads and private messages. Many were multiples of the same thing.

    Ya, I got one of those "verification" e-mails that you get when you first sign up.

    I haven't recieved anything.....I feel left out. :bawl:
     
  11. Yeah...I got a reply from a thread...that was like 2 months ago...it was weird.:confused:
     
  12. i dunno, i get emails for reply's, but i set up a different yahoo account for those, they are kinda annoying, and if you turn email notification off then it doesnt automatically subscribe you to a thread in "my talkbass", which i use all the time
     
  13. I didn't get anything, so its not just a Supporting memeber thing.

    I have the email notification turned on, but it's been real spotty lately.

    5 people will reply to a thread and I'll get 1 email for it (as it should be until I access that thread again).

    or....

    5 people will reply to a thread and I'll get 5 separate emails.:(

    However, for the last couple months, often times I'll get none for a particular thread (but still be notified for others), or I'll get the notification(s) hours, or even a day after the fact.:confused:

    Then today I get slammed with 71 (final total) all at once. They all had the current date (on the email itself), but none of the threads had a recent (within a day or two) post.

    Weird.:meh:
     
  15. I've been getting that lately. I'll get like 1 email for 5 replies in one thread and another thread ill get 5 replies for each seperate one. Also, I noticed that it will send me notifications on threads from the same person like 5 times, and have 1 post from that person, or NO post at all.

    As John mentioned in another similar thread - Paul has been doing housekeeping and the server was re-booted while I was online yesterday - I got a warning message.
     
  18. ide rather get a new email every time theres anything different in a thread, so i dont miss something, if i dont need the email i just delete it.

    Not needed since the "one" email should take you to the first "unread" post (if more than one since last log-in). At that point you are reset so if there are more posts later you will get another email, good for all successive posts until you log-in again.

    Since I've been notified both ways, I don't know how it's truly supposed to happen with this site.
