Alerts being given for posts prior to the alert being set (*again*) RRS feed

  • Question

  • It's really fun when the same problem keeps turning up with every second forum software upgrade.

    This time the fun is that after setting an alert on a thread after reading several replies in the thread in the browser, you then are able to read those same replies again. Because, yes, they are sent to you as alerts.

    Could we *please* get back to the logical state of only getting alerts for posts made to a thread *after* we have set the alert ?  (Again)

  • Well, we'll take another look at it. Initial reports we couldn't get a repro, and then the problem went away for a while. We are rev'ing some shared libraries in our notification service in the release coming up in a couple of weeks. The notification service has had problems in the past related to how it processes work in its queue, so next release may help with this, but we'll take another look at the code and ensure this problem isn't caused somewhere else.
