subscribed thread not sending emails for all posts

I subscribed to a thread but I only got a handful of emails for over 30 posts that were made to the thread today? Why didn't I get an email for every post that was made?

once you get an email about a new post, you won't get any more until you return to the forum. this is noted near the bottom of every email

thanks for the reply, but that's not how it works, because I kept receiving e-mails without returning to the forum, and that has worked that way for several weeks in the past, however, i didn't get all the messages via e-mail, but i did get several of them. Something isn't working right, and why should i have to go back to the forum after each and every post to get the next post if I"m subscribed? I might as well just keep refreshing the thread over and over and over again, that's not very helpful and as I've said, for many weeks now i have NOT returned to the forum after each e-mail and I was STILL getting the posts in previous weeks, only this week have I missed so many so what is the REAL answer why it wasn't working?

my apologies then. that's how it works for me (and by "forum" i mean slickdeals as a whole, not just the thread i'm subscribed to) and is what's written in the bottom of each email i receive, so i figured that was everyone's experience.

it seems a dev may have to look into it. thanks for the report.

You don't have to go back to the specific thread, just the site in general, to refresh the last activity and trigger a new email.

The subscribe feature is not meant to notify you about every single post in a thread.
