Why am I receiving notifictions for topics with no new updates

For instance, I've received notices yesterday and today for this one: Alien circle on my desktop! which has not been updated in the last two days. Happens with many other threads as well like this one: Copy/Move stops at 100%

Hey Rich,

Do you have a copy of those emails that you could post back with? It'll help determine if maybe someone posted in the thread, but the post was later moved or removed leaving you thinking this.

Yes, I have 4 or 5 right now. How do you want me to get them to you?

Forwarded 5 E-mails as attachments. If that is no good I can forward each one individually.

I've just had a quick look at the emails and I think I know what has happened, two days ago we had a user post really bad advice in lots of threads over a 20 minute period, I dumped him and cleaned it up.

I recognize a few of the thread titles in your emails, I think vbulletin must of still had them flaged as having new posts and you got the email even though the new posts had been removed.

Odd. Maybe a glitch??


Unless it's what John posted above, I don't see why you would get a reply email from these two below. My guess would be that since you edited your last post in each thread, it counted as a reply and sent you an email notice for it.

I'll keep an eye on this but it's been happening for several months now.

I'm still getting 5-10 of these a day. I'll forward them again hoping ya'll can find out what is going on. I can't believe all of them have had posts edited or added then removed.

"Bumping" topics
I have seen a few topics where people have "bumped" their topics because it has become unanswered. Is "bumping" frowned upon or against the forum rules?

How to get email updates from my topics?
Normally when I post on forums there is usually a "Subscribe to this topic" option where it will email me when I get a reply. I was wondering how I can set this option on these forums? Thanks
