    I was talking about watched threads and sections, not following people. I don't follow anyone so honestly have no experience with how that function works.

    Ahh - sorry, thought that was clear. It's a long thread & I got into the middle - you had replied to someone "You get alerts when they post" and I mistook this for following members.

    So my guess is, this functionality of following persons exists only in that their is a page in preferences for following members - but the alerts part of it has not been turned on. From my Googling, I believe it has been enabled on other forums using this platform. And it wouldn't make sense to have a setting for following particular members if it didn't do anything. So - is there a way someone can look into turning it on for us too? It is a "nice to have" and would be very handy.

    I've noticed recently that I'll stop getting notifications on threads I'm following, but as soon as I go and log in on the site, they start flowing to my email again for a day or so before they stop again. Really odd.

    This may have been covered and I missed it, pardon the interruption if so, where can I see how many views a post gets when I'm selling a piece of gear?

    thanks,
    Matt
