    @ajmdecorators mentioned this in his spraying thread but I didnt want to derail that thread, I've noticed over the last few weeks a lack of notifications coming through.
    Random things but mainly threads I've commented on having more posts and I haven't had any notification, is it another glitch in the system @mistcoat or have you taken the week off and gone golfing again? :biggrin:

    None of my settings have changed as far as I can see, anyone else had issues or is it just me and AJ?

    Notifications coming through, but not the post itself.

    Have also had this a couple of times Mark, thought it was just my pc. Tim has taken the week off not to play golf but to find one of his brushes in the back of his van. :hysterical:

    I think my add blocker causes a few missed notifications. I do think I'm missing notifications but don't bother me nor will I ever find out for sure... But I've seen posts to threads and I wasn't notified...

    The same story here.
    When checking new posts I'm surprised that the threads I'm watching have new entries.
    I'm using my phone only.

    I thought the same, but it never bothered me like you lot. I just thought, why trouble poor old @mistcoat when he may of had a long day and finished at 11am :biggrin:

    Had emails coming through, randomly, saying blah blah blah has posted but the email had no content, where as it did before.

    Hello folks,
    I have altered some stuff around the back end because of the amount of bounced emails we are still encountering. None of you folks who have posted have dodgy emails (I think), it's just I've altered things for now.
    The email notifications you do get now won't have the whole post on them. You will have to click the link on the notification which will take you to the thread.

    Those that worry they may miss posts, you won't. All you need to do is click the "New Posts" link at the top of the forum. You'll get a new window open which will show threads that have new posts and it will take you to the last post you saw.

    I have a few things to do behind the scenes soon and hopefully all will be sorted. I may go back in time and make the forum black & white :biggrin:

    Sorry @mistcoat I've mislead you it's not email notifications, it's the alerts that aren't coming through for me.

    Maybe you are quite literally 'not' getting the message Peter! Oh, bugger, maybe I'm not either! :sarcastic:

    I have the same thing and think it's to do with the amount of pixilation phones can now deliver which makes a simple pic a lot of data.
    If your trying to send via your phone or pad, try taking a screen snap shot of the pic (apple is home button and power button together.
    Then, go to you pic that you have just taken and crop it a tad so you just see the pic and then upload that one.
    Works for me.

    Alerts have not been touched and should not be affected chaps.

    I think it's been forever that the forum has had a set size for images, Peter. Large files can quickly take up forum bandwidth and stuff and we'd be upgrading servers to quickly if we allowed original sized photos.
    It is easy enough to lower the file/photo sizes.

    Isn’t pixilation banned by the fairy council as deviant?
