To whomever it may concern Emotion: smile
I have a rather peculiar problem: I don't get notifications from the General English Grammar Questions at all. There may be other similar sections. I do get notifications from other sections, probably all of them although I am not quite sure. It says at the bottom of the screen in the GEGQ threads I have participated in: "Email subscriptions disabled" even though they are enabled in my profile. This has gone on since the new look was introduced.

EDIT: Another thing, not really a problem: sometimes the Trusted User icon appears below my name, sometimes it doesn't.

If it is enabled in your profile, the specific threads you want email notifications from have to be enabled too. Also check that when you are posting, there is the "Email me replies to this post." enabled in the options tab.
Re: 2nd issue, yep we've noticed that.

I have "Email me replies to this post" enabled in the options tab and I change "Email Subscription Disabled" to "Email Subscription Enabled" by clicking on it. There is probably something else I should do as well - I just don't know what - because when I return to a thread where I enabled email subscription, it has changed back to "Email Subscription Disabled." How do I prevent that?
Thanks for your advice

Is it possible that this problem will be solved or am I destined to receive no notifications from the General English Grammar section?

If I remember correctly, I received emails for new queries. I remember having to click to read the questions. Nowadays, this feature has disappeared. It is a step backward.

If I'm correct, I hope that something can be done so that members can receive queries in their mailbox.
Cool Breeze: sorry for the late response! I finally understood what you meant - I didn't realize you were trying to get subscriptions on threads that you haven't participated in. I tested this and you're right, it's not working. It's on the bug list now and we'll fix this shortly.

Yoong Liat: I'm not sure what you mean. Queries? Click to read the questions? Where? I'm confused about which "feature" you mean...

Hi PB
I have never tried to get subscriptions on threads I haven't participated in, only those threads that I have participated in. I hope you'll be able to fix that as well? Sometimes the Email Notification Enabled changes back to disabled of its own accord, sometimes it remains enabled. Either way, I get no notifications from the General Grammar section.

EDIT: Very peculiar - my first reply didn't go through and I rewrote it, only to realise that it had slowly made its way there after all.
Very peculiar. My first reply didn't go through and so I rewrote it - only to realise that it had made its way to the forum after all. I tried to mention that using the Edit button but my edited version was lost in cyberspace!
