I have not been getting "instant notification" emails of posts in subscribed forums for the past month or so.

Subscribed threads continue to work as advertised, but I rely on the forum subscriptions to stay current.

I fear I missed an announcement that email notification of forum posts would be discontinued, but hope it is otherwise!

Nope nothing discontinued, and all instant notification emails are also still going out.

Well, something certainly happened. As of this morning, I began getting email notifications again. It makes me wonder if there is a "time-out" of sorts based on posting? That is, say I didn't post anything in a four week time span, does the system stop sending the emails?

The only thing I did here is post the message above. I can't imagine what else changed.

This is happening again to me. Maybe related to the vBulletin upgrade this time?

The email part of it is working fine for me too - I get subscribed thread notifications instantly. Just no subscribed forum notifications.

I noticed what might be contributing to this problem, at least this time around. I thought I would try unsubscribing and resubscribing to a particular forum, but it appears instant notification is no longer an option! The options are "Through my control panel only", "Daily updates by email", "Weekly updates by email". Any chance we can get the instant option back?
