    I believe it has been disabled (temporarily) to see the effect on the server load.

    I recieve E-Mail notice if i comment on the front page topics but not on the actual forums!.

    Which does not really bother me anymore as i do a search on my name to see if anyone has posted after me on a thread.

    Don't worry 2.30 will go final soon has been a release candidate for quite a while. They really want to make it the last ever release, so they can fully concentrate on 3.0

    We will update to 3.0 once it has gone final and has had a chance to get rid of those last minute bugs!

    here's the best idea for you guys;

    under one of your posts, hit the button that says profile

    then in your profile, top right, you'll see a "search for all posts by this user"

    right click, make that a favorite

    then, just hit that whenever you want to track the threads you've posted on.

    use this till we get the email notification back on line

    Here's the method I prefer, myself:
    Dealer doesn't like it because it doesn't take you to the last post, but I like it because the results don't have all that extra info -- thus you can overview which posts are new much easier.

    1) Make a bookmark or favorites of any page on NTFS.org
    2) Find the bookmark in your favorites menu->right click on it->and select properties
    3) Put in the following address for the URL:
    http://www.ntfs.org/forum/search.php?s=&query=&searchuser=USERNAME&exactname=yes&forumchoice=-1&titleonly=&showposts=&searchdate=-1&beforeafter=after&sortby=lastpost&sortorder=descending&action=simplesearch&Submit=Perform Search

    Simply replace the part in red with your username. In the case of my username, I have a space in my name (which is not allowed in the URL), so I have to put in the following Kevin%20Ar18 Notice I replace the space with %20

    I noticed a problem when you posted it -- same thing happened to me when I copied and pasted it one time. You may want to edit my post and get the UBB code and copy it from there so it will paste right.

    I can't edit in here.

    even if I could, you are alrady parsed, so I would still have to figure it out.

    I think I got it for the most part

    email to me exactly what you want me to cut and paste

    I'll be back tomorrow

    sorry I don't have time to wofk this out for myself

    Hmm... as a moderator I would have thought you would have had access to edit posts (such as when you encounter objectionable content).
    Anyways, here ya go -- all ready for copying and pasting.

    PHP:
    1Make a bookmark or favorites of any page on NTFS.org
    2
    Find the bookmark in your favorites menu->right click on it->and select properties
    3
    Put in the following address for the URL:
    [
    b]http://www.ntfs.org/forum/search.php?s=&query=&searchuser=[u][color="red"][i]USERNAME[/i][/color][/u]&exactname=yes&forumchoice=-1&titleonly=&showposts=&searchdate=-1&beforeafter=after&sortby=lastpost&sortorder=descending&action=simplesearch&Submit=Perform Search[/b]

    Simply replace the "USERNAME" which is red Capital Letters with your username on this forum.  In the case of my usernameI have a space in my name (which is not allowed in the URL), so I have to put in the following [color="red"]Kevin%20Ar18[/color]  Notice I replace the space with %20
    Unfortunately, it wouldn't let me give you the code to make USERNAME in red, so you'll have to add that in:
    PHP:
    [color=red]USERNAME[/color]
