    Another forum bug. Note that receiving email notifications works fine when creating new threads.

    • Go to uMMORPG Official Thread
    • Edit the very first post and select More Options
    • Enable 'and receive email notifications'
    • Click 'Save Changes'
      • Buttons turn grey
      • It loads for a while
      • Buttons turn black again
    • Usually it ends the editing when saving changes, but in this case it does nothing. When going back to the thread again and editing it again, 'and receive email notifications' is turned off again.

    We can't seem to reproduce this on our account. Is the official uMMORPG thread the only one you can't enable this option for? When you click the "Watch thread" button at the top, are you able to add the email opt in?

    If I create a new thread then it works.
    If I watch any random thread, it works.
    If I edit my uMOBA thread, it works.
    Just for my uMMORPG thread it doesn't. What I know is that I didn't check 'receive email notifications' when creating that thread. And ever since then I wasn't able to enable it again.

    It's not that big of a deal, just wanted to let you know though.

    We would love to look into it, does the watch button at the top provide a work around for the uMMORPG thread? Just curious.

    I believe you would have to unwatch it then watch it again using that button.

    Yay that did it. Thank's a lot, that was kinda obvious.
