Unread Content on Private Boards

Also, when I tested the notifications yesterday using a regular member account, I was getting notifications from three years ago!  If you click on the “load more threads” at the bottom of the stream content, you’ll get many more new posts.  Have you seen that option, Elgee?

 

I get that, Mashiara, but the issue is that it doesn't accurately tell me which threads I've read and which not. It either shows all read or all unread. I follow a massive amount of boards (most of necessity, some for pleasure). When the system still worked properly, I received over a 100 notifications of new posts/threads a day. This current system does not work for me.

@Elgee Have you tried resetting your notifications in the "Manage Followed Content" section?  You can access it from the drop down list when you click on your name in the top right corner.  From there, you can set your preferences to receive only one email a day for your notifications of single threads, or complete forums.  Again, it looks like it works for me, but I'm having trouble testing it from a member's perspective.

Change the settings for each thread and board??

My understanding is that you can follow a thread (topic, is what this version calls it) and/or a board (forum, is what this version calls it).  ie: I can follow the White Ajah Quarters board and receive notifications of new posts, but I can also follow the Lean in 2018 thread and receive notifications of new replies.

 

So when you edit your “Manage Following Content” you can select topic and manage it so you only receive one email a day.  Then you can select forum and manage it so you only receive one email a day.

 

Would that help your issue?

No - I follow hundreds of threads and over 30 individual boards. I can't manually change the setting on each - it would take forever.

 

And now I'm randomly NOT getting notification of new threads / posts on random boards / threads.

Is it possible to fix this somehow. I have wanted to start threads in the BT but I realise that if they don´t show up in the Unread Content list noone will find them.

Yes please fix this. The search new content was the most useful button, especially on mobile. There's so much being missed because general members searches don't contain posts from members only boards. I'm sure it's affecting how busy we are in general.
