In light of the current weather:

(a) are you safe in regard to Irma? (Please keep us updated)

(b) where is SLU hosted, geographically? Are we at risk of going blip?

Did Facebook steal SLU's idea for reaction buttons?

This thread from 2008 has Thanks, Agreed and Laugh reactions and Facebook didn't have a Like button till 2009.

That's interesting but is a little different than what I was talking about. So far as I know SLU was the first site on the web to have reaction buttons under each post. They were here before Facebook had a like button. Maybe Facebook got the idea for a like button from SLU?

I'm pretty sure post reaction buttons on SLU go back to when the site switched to vBulletin for the forum software, or not long after that. But it's a plugin written for it and distributed freely, and not something originating here.

In any case, if you want to claim SLU originated something Facebook now does, I'm all for calling them thieves.

Are you using tapatalk on a cell phone? It's probably something with them.

No, no. For SLU I just use my computer. Up until a few days ago I got an email every time someone posted in a thread I'm subscribed to. Nothing else has changed my email is working fine. I really really want to start getting notifications again!

It's a mystery to me how you got such notifications in the first place. There's nothing in User CP/Edit Options about getting email when someone posts in a thread. The only way (I think) I've heard of that sort of thing being possible is with what tapatalk does on cell phones. Maybe I've missed something. It wouldn't be the first time.

I think it's a basic vBulletin function. In fact, there's a setting, if you go to UserCP -> Settings and Options -> Edit Options. Scroll to Messaging and Notifications, and find Default Thread Subscription Mode. There, you can set whether to receive an email notification, and when to receive them. If this is set to send email notifications, but you're not getting them, then you might want to check your spam/junk folder to see if they're ending up in there.

I don't use the subscribe feature myself, so I can't tell for sure if it's broken or not. But I'd check that setting and see if it got changed.

I just checked everything and it's all in order. But I'm not getting notifications.
