I noticed a few days ago (probably not for the first time) that email notifications aren't working for PMs.

Thus I was quite surprised when I received an automatic email from Backpacker tonight about being mentioned on a thread.  I didn't have tracking turned on for any threads, and the particular comment it cited was made 11/5/13.  The last time that thread was touched was 11/8/13.

Either they're messing with the knobs, or somebody is up to no good.

The email gives a link to notification options that aren't part of the normal control panel.

Perhaps it's a phishing attack, or maybe they're playing with the new software.

I don't worry about parallel universes, just the converging ones....  :cool:

Hey big_load, that's a funny twist! But thanks for not including a link.

I've been asked not to mention anything here, but it is true that the new forums are being tested. I'm involved. No more info just yet.

I wondered, I had a email from "backpacker" that @echo was mentioned in a comment on the good morning thread. It wasn't the same as the notifications when a pm comes in. Plus it also was an old comment and I'd been mentioned a lot more recently in that thread.

Can't wait to hear all the bi+(#ing about the new software. Some people just don't like change. Me, I'm looking forward to it.
