This is all ok, but I've seen cases where I didn't see the second email anywhere on my inbox, but did stop receiving updates from that thread. The thread was still marked as subscribed. Had to unsubscribe and resubscribe.

so
1. after two new messages, the forum stops sending emails
2. these two emails may get lost somewhere
3. a thread showing subscribed doesn't mean the forum didn't decide to give up.

Before the upgrade the forum emails came through as you described. Once you went to one of those forums and read the last post it seems to clear/reset the email tracking so you would get a new email for that thread after the next forum post.

Currently I am getting zero forum emails and zero PM emails, yet both are getting new messages.

I am trying a test on this forum thread. I cleared the tracking for this one and resubscribed. Maybe they all need to be reset. I will report back either way. For the missing PM emails, I will probably try the same thing to reset the desire for getting those notifications.

Neither test resulted in any emails from the forums yet, so it definitely looks broken for at least some of us. Maybe it is just the www.waze.com/forum servers?

Just noticed that same thing here on iPad.

After nearly two weeks of no emails from the forums, I have received two this morning. Maybe whatever was broken is now fixed because I did not do anything different on those two than I did for any others.

(Edit: I am now getting many email so it all appears to be normal again.)

I was getting PMs from many people, but never saw an email. Or are you saying the email bug will now only clear after you get a PM?

I assume this is still broken for everyone. Mine certainly is broken still.

That, and I have a feeling that the "Favorite Subjects" (in Tapatalk) is somehow erratic - not all my participated threads become automatically favorites or so it seems.

Not only this, I'm regularly loosing some Favorites, even these I've already written into (e.g. the Android 3.6.0.0 thread, but also other ones) and/or already multiple times subscribed myself into.


Okay...this was supposed to be an example of the nested quote problem, but it seems to have gone away.

I noticed on the web interface the quotations are fine. I see in this post on tapatalk all the quotes are visible, but when I view jasonh300's post on tapatalk I only see the last quote level.

You can see in my post above that my quotation of jasonh300 got pretty messed up. The Timbones quote did not register, so the closing quotes got out of sync and the text from jasonh300 was not matched to the open quote.
