Not receiving notifications on some posts

Post #1

Post by Tcg »

I'm not receiving notifications on some posts. This seems to be limited to replies that don't include a quotation. I'm not sure if others are seeing this or if it is related to something specific about my account settings or setup in general.

Could that also account for the incorrect numbering that occurs when one uses the reply button? It is always one more than the actual post number.

For example, the post I have copied below was a response to one I made earlier in the thread Belief in The Resurrection - Faith, or Fact Based:

What would you accept as evidence that a God existed?
I have highlighted the post number in red. My post that Zerilos was replying to was actually #272.

It seems that we now get [Replying to Name in post #2] regardless of the actual post # otseng. Sorry.

Can you provide a link to where this is happening and I'll then investigate it.

Eloi was replying to post #7

In the next post it said [Replying to Tcg in post #3] when it should have been #8.

Then, on the next page we get:

It should be post #14.

Possibly something Eloi is doing?

My guess is it's something Eloi is doing. Other places seem to be working correctly.
