why do i not get alerts any more

16 Replies

I have not received alerts for about a month already

Did you check your spam folder?

I am not getting my either and they are not in the spam folder .. I get everything but I can't monitor a topic  when I hit the monitor but that works but I never get e mail alerts. so that's a major problem and it really cuts down on the amount of interaction I can have with BP right now.. ( not that anyone really probably cares but it would be nice to get back to full utilization)

  I only get e mail notifications of

1. Votes

2. collegue requests.

I cannot monitor a topic... I don't get e mail notification of a PM.. or any other e mails notifications that come from BP... just the two as mentioned above and non go to my spam can

I still get the newsletters and the only other email notification I set up to get is when I get a message - which seems to be working about half the time.  

Also when I post using keywords I subscribe to about 25% of the time it alerts my keyword notification on the site and the other times it does not

I went back through my emails from Bigger Pockets to do some more research and I found that I am getting the following:

+ Newsletters

+ Subscribed forums alerts

+ Subscribed topics alerts

But alas, it looks like I too, am not getting any keyword alerts.  And nothing in the spam/junk folder.  So it's not just you guys.

I stopped getting them for a few days too.  I turned off all my alerts, changed my email address, changed it back a day later, and then turned on the alerts again.  Now I get them.  

I _am_ getting keywords alerts via email, just FYI.  So it is not a site-wide issue.

Yes, I have that set up, but mine is set to "daily" not "instant".  Could that be it?

Newsletter ... is there still a newsletter?  I haven't seen one of those in months.

{Yes I checked and it's still checked}

I finally got one alert today about financing but other than that nada zip nothing I cancel my plus membership til problem is solved

Mine still does not work.. I hit monitor the topic and nothing happens

Suddenly today my keyword alerts are working!

I looked in my spam quarantine, your alerts aren't there either ;-)

Came across this post when searching about keyword alerts. I'm not getting any notifications, only the newsletters. Are others still having this problem?
