  • Yep. No points added, no update to activity in profile. Replied-to threads marked with the alert bell icon, but no emails arriving.

    These "stalls" are not new (to me, anyway). They predate the Alerts issue and always seemed to occur over weekends. In the past, the "stalls" were followed by a flood of alert emails and sudden update of points, activities, etc.

    So, I remain optimistic that this is just another temporary "stall" ;-)


    Update: I just received the aforementioned flood of alert emails, and my points/activities started updating again.

  • I second this :-)

    Would also like to add that despite this thread http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/thread/74ded3e4-9f5c-4e3d-a702-defd447837f4 stating that Alerts are working, they aren't.

  • Also no activities for 2 days.

    About the alerts I thought the aren't working either, but when you post a reply, it still sais "Alert Me" on the top of the question but when you go on to the forum it does have add the alert the the thread. So this looks like a little bug to me.

    1. +1 what Ronny is saying.  The only way around this is a manual process, ie. once you have responsed to  a post, you have to manually click on alert me even though you have the automatically alert me ticked.  What's going on with this?  A bug?
    2. My alerts have stopped working, I've done all the usual stuff, change email addresses, multiple tried with different namespaces, junkemail checked etc...., logged out in out etc..

  • Yes, we had a Notifcation Service issue that has been resolved. It should be working fine now. Thanks.

  • The points and activities seem to work now, thanks. Let's hope that it will be at least 2+ months till the next stall.

  • Stalls (not too long, please) I can live with :-)

    I'm just glad to have the alerts back!

  • I'm not getting alerts because I don't configure my replies to get them. I always check using 'My Threads' - that's the first thing in the morning I check after I verified what changed in activities during the night.

  • Betcha it's just another "stall" :-)

  • No doubt, but I used to come in the morning and check my night activities and nothing there. The points also stopped, but I think I got several answers marked at night.

  • I agree that it can be annoying, but that's why I've adopted the "Alfred E. Neuman" approach ("What, me worry?"). You may well be far too young to remember Alfred. If so, I'm sure your favorite search engine "Mad Magazine" will unearth some entertainment :-)
