I have my notify turned on for everyone in my friends list, but there are some that I haven't gotten anything in my email for. I know that for a fact they are starting discussions, but not once have I been notified of a single one. Any ideas how come this is so??

I wish I could hit triple pluses for this conversation. lol I don't think your notify is broken, I think there is a glitch or something because I'm not getting all of my notifications either. I have like 45 people on my friends list and all of the notifies are on but I only recieve notifications from a few. I know more of them are starting discussions than what I am recieving. So I don't think it is just us.

I tried turning it on and off and back on for one that I know is starting discussions each day, but I don't know it if will help yet or not.

If you think something is wrong, it might be best to contact Mylot, to see if there is a proble,. Sorry to hear that. All my notications are turned on and all my emails come through. Best of luck.

Hey jer, this too seems to be glitch from time to time. Some days I am getting my notifications and others i am not, and it does seem to be selective.... I still do not believe I am getting all of them.... Don't worry we are all hopeing eventually Mylot staff and admin will have this all worked out.

Lol, I am sure they will get it worked out eventually. I know what you mean about it being selective, I one friend that I am certain of, and if fact it was why I realized it in the first place, that I receive notices for responses and comments, but none when she starts a new discussion.

I do not know why this happens, but it does very occasionally. I have all my friends notify turned on, but some of the discussions I never get in my email at all and I have not got a clue why. I have had where I have not had any notifications for about 3 days and then all of a sudden I have had hundreds come through where they have all been backlogged!! When this happens I usually go onto the myLot actual site and go through all my friends discussions on there just to make sure that I have not missed anyone out.

I am trying to figure out which friends I receive notices on and which I do not.

It probably has to do with a computer glitch on MyLot's end. This kind of thing happens to me all of the time, but it never lasts that long. It almost always resolves itsself after a few minues.

Well, I had hoped that was the case, but I have one friend that I have never receive a notice for a new discussion, and yet I do receive them for responses and comments. I am wait to hear from admin. now.

Every once in a while this happens...usually to me it happens on weekends when I think the traffic here is heavy. You might want to contact the adim. about it though so they can see if there is a glitch connected with your email notification.

For me it is not specifically related to any time period or specific days of the week. I did send admin. an email when I first posted this discussion but so far haven't gotten a response.

I turned my notify off. My inbox was too full. Turned my notify off for myspace too.

I can understand, your inbox can become quite full in a hurry.

Yes, I've noticed this too! I only get updates from 2 or 3 friends at the moment, but when I go to look at 'discussions my friends started' I can see that they've started lots that I don't know about. It must be a problem with myLot, I've been wondering what's going on. Thanks for starting this discussion so I know it's not just me.
