New TP Site & iPad Issues

Now would you believe it!
Yes.

I've been trying to for some time to see if there is any consistency in whether alerts are triggered when they should be, it affect all alerts (I've not been testing media related alerts).
In the case of watched threads the reason for watching seems to be immaterial

I've ruled out being simultaneously logged in on two systems and the popularity of threads which might send more alerts to systems than the server can handle.

Resetting the options seems to help for a while.

Strangely 'Can I...Should I' @Sam Luvit seems to be immune from problems.

I wish @nitram. Alerts for “so bizzare” are random, I get nothing, then see I’m pages behind, them get several fir a day, then nothing for days ??

I get alerts when I’ve already read the thread? I’ve pretty much given up & just sort by watched threads & scan to see if anything new

I do appear to get alerts if there is an “@samluvit” though

As for the issue of jumping to another page ... that is very much on going I’m sad to say

I’ve given up on email notifications & don’t have them, just the flag on the site. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t.

I’m far more irritated by the jumping page thing. iPad nearly went through a window earlier I was soooooo annoyed with it

Arrrgggghhhhhh

I pressed post reply & it took me to change notifications page !!!

I give in

It can get irritating when you open a post that's new to you but already has garnered several responses. You want to read from the start but the site fights against you in a battle of wills, jumping to the end of the page while you're trying to scroll up. Grr.

Good. Well done. Hard thinking work

Now mine?? My turn :)

Mine still not working properly

When I get the time, shall go through motions of un tick / tick boxes, save, switch off phone, reset etc etc and report back

Might not be for a while until later today

Any orange asterisks against the time interval since posting?

The asterisk seems to indicate an unread post except that there is a time delay between reading and it vanishing.

As an aside I've not found anything missed on watched forums/new threads but that is harder to check

Not used lap top to access TP

Only use iPhone 6 via safari

I’m generally outside getting “fresh air” when I pop into TP so have only see purple eye

@2jays

More or less my experience over the last few months.

I think this phrase often used in a different context on TP sums it up - 'Variable and unpredictable'

I differ from you in that if I get a flag I get an email.
