subscriptions drop

Instead of emailing or PM'ing the Admins or Mods with technical support questions or comments about the site, check here to see if someone else has had the same difficulty or has made the same suggestion. What you're after might have already been posted and addressed. If not, rather than emailing or PM'ing us, please post a detailed description of the problem/suggestion and one of the HST team members will address your needs shortly.

Well, it's still going on, very weird. If I don't visit the site for a week or so I quite getting notifications. But then, if I visit a topic I start getting them again for that topic??!?

Is the ghost in my machine or yours?

I've made a couple of changes in the Admin panel such as increasing the e-mail package size limit, and also changed my admin e-mail address. Make sure to add ** to your safe list.

Let's see if that helps.

I like "ecosterling!" Sounds like some kind of low-carbon-footprint silver. :p

Had to type the hidden characters to get logged on today... HST's is about the hardest to decipher I've run across (maybe it's just my eyes)!

BSquared, It's not just your eyes. I had to do that a week ago when in got "logins exceeded max". I think it's the colors that cause the problem. It doesn't look like the standard Captcha B/W thing i see on other sites.

I had to punt on the first one, and redo the second. And still, we're here.

There's an important aspect to being notified when subscribed:

This topic has received a reply since your last visit. You can use the following link to view the replies made, no more notifications will be sent until you visit the topic.


This is in your notification email. It's a "decay" factor. If you don't log in and either read the thread or mark read, you will get nothing again ever. It cuts down on the site needing to put out emails.

Eric or Greg, Is there a way to keep getting notifications without the constant logging in? (I know.. like i won't :lol: )
