It's probably just me, but I don't get any notifications that a thread I've replied to (or created for that matter), has been replied to.

is there an option somewhere I can set to do this?

Thanks in advance.


If you do a search, there are a few older threads requesting this functionality. The big issue is that since Paizo is also a store, sending out a large number of emails to the larger ISPs with similar messages is a good way to get a domain or IP blacklisted, so the emails filter to the SPAM folder instead of the inbox. As there are already times when they have to send massive emails to the userbase (such as when the CORE rulebook PDF is updated), They are very protective of this functionality becoming detrimental to the playerbase.

About 3 years ago we got the (X new) feature on the forum, where after the end of the forum name for any thread you've visited is a link in parenthesis with the number of new entries in the thread since you last opened it. If you click on this link, it brings you directly to the first post you 'haven't seen yet' Combine that with the dot that appears after threads you have posted in, and you can tell at a glance, which threads you need to review.

Its not perfect, but it works..... Hope this helps

We also have RSS/Atom feeds for pretty much everything, which you can subscribe to for updates. (Click the little orange icon at the top of each page, up by the Facebook, Twitter, and email icons.)

Thank you for the information...

I had seen the RSS feeds for various pages...but found that the product page ones were always empty, and thereby unuseable... and thus assumed the forum ones were the same...
