    For about a week or so I havn't been getting any e-mails advising me of a new post in any thread I've subscribed to. I've checked my settings and all seems fine there. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Unfortunately no. ....and that's why it took so long for me to notice your post.

    I tried everything, such as setting for no notification, and then resetting for notification. No luck.

    John,

    Don't know if this helps but it is not just you, I don't believe that anyone receives the emails notifying them of updates anymore.

    Although I have had no confirmation from the site administrator I believe that the email notifications may have been suspended following the UK GDPR legislation. This legislation was designed to stop "people" being bombarded with unsolicited emails and required any site sending emails automatically to re-verify their contact list. The admin overhead that this would entail has caused a number of sites, based in the UK, to stop emailing their members. I have no legal knowledge and these are just my thoughts distilled from following the news so are open to challenge and correction.
