Why can't I stay following a thread?

Many times in the past few weeks, I've posted to a thread; got notifications for a few days, which were always clicked to keep them coming; and then, suddenly, they stopped coming. I would find out later that the thread was rolling on, but I was no longer in the loop.

I've noticed that also in the last few days. I can't remember what topics though, just that I saw in the 'recent topics' list that they had had activity and I hadn't received recemt notifications. I think they were conversations that I had posted in and the notifications come automatically rather than ones I had clicked 'watch topic'.

I wish I could reproduce this from my end so I could fix it. Do you guys see any pattern as to how/when this happens?

Well, it just happened to me here; since I started this thread, I should have got a notification, but I did not. I use gmail, if that helps.

I got a email notice for this one.
The others I only happened to notice when I was browsing 'recent topics' and saw a couple that I had been getting email notifications for but hadn't for the recent posts. I'll try to pay more attention if it happens again.

I've got a glitch in the pie feature for you though https://permies.com/t/56927/tnk/pie-feature-change-hours-dates

Actually, this time I got the reminder, but a little late. Sometimes, though, I have still not got them after a week of waiting. I don't mind the reminders taking half an hour or so.
