    Do thread subscriptions work?

    I subscribe to a thread, select 'Instant notification', but when a new item is posted, I receive nothing...am I doing something wrong here or do subscriptions even work? (btw, yes I did check the spam box).

    This problem has been reported previously in the following thread, and has never been fixed:

    "Discussion thread about the new MERB configuration - including bug reports etc..."
    (https://merb.cc/vbulletin/showthread...ug-reports-etc...)

    Here are a couple of posts from this thread which reported the problem:

    Thanks,

Much better to just send me an email if it`s important so if it seems like I`m ignoring anyone that sends me a message, I`m not. Just not around to check them more than once a month or so.
    For myself, currently "Instant notifications" do not work at all. however, "Daily notification" and PM notifications work fine.

    Hopefully, your post will remind the Mods of this ongoing problem and facilitate a resolution.

    Thanks RobinX.
    I was not aware of that thread. I did a search on subscriptions and found nothing relevant. The FAQ only tells you how to set one up.
    I will change my subs to daily notification...
