How To React To COM email notifications.

I made a post in someone else's conversation the other day and since then I've had half a dozen or more email notifications about (1) someone commenting on my post or (2) someone rating my post.

And a link is provided.

But that link takes me only to the beginning of the conversation - the initial post.

Where I'd expect to be taken to the post in question - if it's a reply or comment on my post - or perhaps to any post at all of the person in question if they've only rated my post.

I am accustomed to phpBB boards where it works like that. I am very new at this board. That, in fact, was my first ever post.

Probably I'm missing the obvious here, that's not at all unusual for me......

:)

this is an edit:

I just got another email. 'Billie' had responded to my post. It said "See Billie's Post" and a link was provided. I clicked the link and got a page showing the initial post for that conversation and then a series of posts, none of which belonged to any 'Billie'.

That's what I mean.

The "reply" button has never seemed to work. I even forgot one was there. It comes and goes with the development team. This site overall is great. Stick with it. You will learn it fast.

"Billie" may have deleted his or her own post. Then it will still alert you that someone responded, but you are not seeing the post. Hopefully you received notifications that I am responding to you. Let me know if you have any further questions. Hope I clarified something for you.

On the upper right hand corner of your page there are 3 icons. One is a persons bust, the other is a letter (e mails) and the last is a bell. The first one is for if people want to add you to their circle. The next is e mail notifications or pm's. The third is to notify you that someone has posted a comment to a post you are active on, or has rated on of your posts. If you hover over the bell, it will drop down and tell you the threads. It will also tell you the person, and whether or not they liked your post. You can click on that, the pink part of it. It will bring you to the post.

I am pretty sure this is what you are asking about. Hope this helps. From there, you can post a comment if you choose to respond.

Thanks for the post about the icons.

In line with wanting to see how they system works I'm now doing a 'reply' to this specific post... I think my reply goes in with no indication as to which post I specifically intended to reply to.... this should demonstrate that or otherwise to me.

I used the icon thing and got no better results - which indicates it was deleted alright - and ascertained that thread is now closed anyway.

Onwards and upwards...

Thanks for that. I guess you're right.. she deleted her post... it doesn't matter at all beyond me wanting to understand how the system works...
