"Get Updates via Email" tick box

  Secret-Squirrel 08:59 10 Jul 2015

Despite ticking that box every time, I used to get just a few email updates per year. Since the forums' upgrade I haven't received any. Is anyone else affected?

If this is a widespread problem then that may account for why so few thread-starters bother to return. It must be very disheartening for helpers on the tech forums when they give up their free time to help someone and never get a reply. That's certainly how I feel.

I'm sorry to hear this - we're looking into it.

I had an e-mail from them yesterday and clicked on the Unsuscribe button which takes you to a page which does not open and gives a 404 problem.

So can looks like I am stuck with getting e-mails that I do not want.

It is just one of those things I do not like. I try to keep my mail box open for family and friends so I unsubscribe from all company's that I have dealt and not just PCA.

Some want Mail some do not and I am sure there used to be a box in my account that you could tick or put an X on if you did want mail or not.

I know you get one on all posts but you used to get it on My Account as well. I suppose it may be a bit difficult to keep everyone happy and maybe that's why there is a little problem with the mail.

So you never tick that box and get an email while I always tick it and get nothing. Thanks for your input.

Like I said, we'll fix this.

I very seldom get an E-mail from them so this is not really important to me but thought that I would post the fault as it is not working.

The above url was not found on this site this might be because you typed the web address incorrectly - please check the address and spelling. If the link was from another site some times the query string (the bit after ?) becomes corrupted. It is also possible that the page you requested may have been moved or deleted.

It's certainly working for me. Thank you Ed.

Good that is resolved and some other glitches so while we are having a tidy up how about sorting the links whereby the word after the link goes to the bottom of the page.
