    How about forum watch @Martin ? I'm not receiving any alerts on "Invites" forum. No option here for alerts or emails. Any changes applied to this forum?

    Don't quit, I'm an eclair level forum member as well, and I got an invite. It can definitely happen. Just keep a positive attitude, stay involved in the forums & check your spam folder every day.

    Martin, Aug 28, 2014 :
    The invite boards all have this feature disabled. You can still watch forums like announcement, contests or technical help if you wish. But having 10,000 notifications going out every time someone posted a new thread in invites section was not something we wanted to dedicate time to optimizing for.

    Browsers have had bookmarks since before the dinosaurs went extinct. What would we do different in our implementation to make it useful to our users?

    As i wrote in my thread i use at least 3 devices to browse the forum.
    1. the ONE with dolphin browser
    2. Home PC with Chrome
    3. Work PCs (not olways the same) with Internet Explorer (can use just it)
    As you see my browser bookmarks become not so usefull

    Martin, Aug 28, 2014 :
    That's a good point. Browsers are starting to synchronize bookmarks, though. Firefox and Chrome are both doing it. That leaves out just your work PC.

    I can see the value of it but I'm not convinced it's worth the developer time required right now compared to some of the other things we could do.

    Even though I can appreciate the decision to reset watched threads, but in the process I lost 25 VERY useful threads to ME which I regularly watched and the majority of them I found with a lot of searching and not easy to find again...all of them are now GONE. I did not choose to receive any e-mails, just watched those threads in the forums. Really poor way of handling things IMHO.....

    For me the change was an improvement, saves me from spam or the extra steps to unwatch the thread

    I'm quite happy not receive endless notifications. Just check mail and forums regularly.
