I used to get a notification when I was quoted (or simply replied to) in a thread, geeklist, or anywhere else (at least I thought I did - or was I hallucinating?). This no longer happens.

Is this a bug or am I off my rocker?

How long ago was this? I don't remember getting any notification unless I was subscribed to the thread.

I know I missed some replies in the past (2 years ago?) because I had forgotten to subscribe to the thread.

If you go to your Subscription preferences, there is an option to choose to be notified of replies to your content. You can also choose to be automatically subscribed to any thread, list etc. that you reply to.

Yes, I have those things turned on but I was not notified when I was quoted/replied to in this thread:

eagle games bargain basement - goldbrau and oltre mar bundle $24.99

I did not start the thread but I thought that anytime I was quoted/replied to I'd get notified. I have to subscribe to the thread too?

The subscription system doesn't know which particular post is being replied to, nor which users are quoted in a particular reply--only the thread. You'd have to subscribe to the thread if you want to know when someone replies to you in a given thread.

Interesting.... Thanks for pointing out the preferences. I guess I never looked there.
