This makes me sad.  I have the attention span of a 2 year old hopped up on pixie sticks and bubble gum.  I sometimes forget I post and miss having a little reminder.  :cries:

You know, I find the most practical way to browse the forum is to look at the "unread" feature. If you go HERE (bookmark it) you can see a list of topics that have new posts that you didn't see yet. I check through the titles to see if there's anything I might help with, and pay special attention to the topics that I've already posted in. You can tell which you've posted in because normal topics are designated whereas topics you've posted in are designated .

Agreed and that's what I use.
Also, underneath the "unread" line (in the upper right hand corner under your username) is the link for "Show new replies to your posts".  This will show any thread that you have posted in...either ones that you started or just commented in.  Pretty handy feature!
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

My usual routine is to check 'Show new replies to your posts' which does the same as AndyCivil describes in the second part above and then check any unread posts...

I am pretty confident that the block on notifications is a security issue which was addressed in the last update.

Members may no longer receive notifications but should be reassured that they are also less likely to receive malicious items from the Forum via the notifications system... 
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

The mobile site is made to look pretty much the same as an iPhone app...

I was hinting at the idea of push notifications.

If you read some of the earlier posts, I think I gave link to something I found on a Google search about this problem.  I personally think that it can be fixed to work.

It would involve changing some of the PHP code for how emails are handled.  And have used this forum set up, Simple Machines, in the past on a site that I maintain.  And it may involve some information or even some chatting with the host provider on their version of PHP that the host is using.  I have dealt a small bit with emailing in PHP and "sort of" understand what they are talking about.  I do not think it would be that complicated to fix and make active and much more secure than the version that was being used before it quit during an upgrade.
