    Default Broken Email Notification of Replies to Threads

    Back before the new forum, I'd get email notification of replies to posts I had subscribed to.

    Not anymore. Yet another broken thing that'll never be fixed by Turbine? What am I paying for with VIP?

    I don't see tons of complaints here, so I thought it was maybe that my account email got lost in the transition. So, I go poking around "My Account", "My Profile", and "Settings" and can't find a place for email.

    Is it just me or are others also not getting email notification of replies to threads you ARE subscribed to?

    Frankly, I like to be a non-complainer and diss whiners. However, for more than a year, Turbine has been going in the wrong direction and I just ain't happy with how my game money is being spent and repeated strong-arming by Turbine to force me to shell out more money for a game that becomes more and more broken. You know, more money like for expansions that we were promised would be free to VIP'ers when the game FTP.

    I didn't notice - since the forums kick me out so quickly my participation in said forums has dropped to 10% of what it was.

    Yes, I noticed this too. Although I rarely post now that I have to keep logging in and go back through the main ddo.com page so often.

    As folks have noticed, the notification system is not currently working. We've got a bug entered on it, and the web team will put it on their to-do list. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Default Thanks whenever it is fixed

    Glad it's on the to-do list and thanks whenever it is fixed - but, that doesn't seem likely anytime soon based on past track record.

    I just don't understand why the new system to begin with. It broke many things from the old and doesn't seem to me to have any improvements... but, alas, that seems to be the pattern with new stuff in the game as well. Add something different as "new" that breaks a lot of old stuff without seeming to really having much benefit to anyone...

    Still waiting on this one - about 3 months now...

    I guess it'll get fixed after all those bugs in the game that we've been waiting on for years...

    (Never I guess /sigh)

    Still waiting... 5 months now...

    Oh, I'm sure in a few years once the game's dead, we'll finally get email notifications again...

    Default A novel idea...

    I got a novel idea... have something tested enough that it actually works as it is supposed to!

    I somehow doubt we'll get any past notifications for postings, but it sure would be nice to have them emailed to us again...
