I so rarely get notifications, and over such a long period of time, that I've just given it up as permanent fatal flaw.
Yes, it would appear that there is an inherent problem that is just not going to get fixed. This is most unfortunate on a forum as popular and respected as this. When notifications fail on a forum this has got to be seen as a serious functional problem but perhaps there are not enough of us suffering from this to get something done about it?
Want to get a notification? I'll send myself an email with the URL of the thread, and save them in a "WebmasterWorld follow-up" email folder. That'll be an easy to access reminder to check that thread for new replies.
Not to mention not getting 7,382 notifications of reponses to a Google penalty thread. :)
If I haven't saved one that I should have:
site:webmasterworld.com D_Blackwell keyword
(or SuzyUK keyword)
Google doesn't miss much:))
But that has nothing to do with the problem of being on top of current threads. No notifications is huge minus. It is what it is, and WebmasterWorld is still a great place - but it is what it is.
I keep a bookmark folder specifically for WebmasterWorld threads that I suspect I may want to return to even months later. Been a sanity saver more than once.
the first of the "Message Thread Options:" at the bottom of each thread is the "flag it" option which will keep a list of flagged threads for you.
you can see this list in the control panel [webmasterworld.com] where there is a My flags [webmasterworld.com] link
