    Way back before we changed forums I subscribed to some of them. I'm still getting a notification message every time somebody posts in those forums, and I can't figure out how to turn it off.

    I've tried to "subscribe" with no emails, and then I've tried to unsubscribe. Nothing seems to work.

    I'm having the opposite problem. I never get any email notices to my subscribed threads. Something is broken.

    Did you try the ">> USER CP" buton above, then the "List Subscriptions" link then "Edit Subscriptions" and look at the checkboxes on the topics?

    I'm having exactly the same problem on another vBulletin forum. It's clearly a problem with vBulletin, but I haven't researched it enough to know why.

    I did, and they all say "Instant Notification" but none of the boxes are checked and when I check them they don't stay checked. Every time I go back to List Subscriptions the boxes are still unchecked.

    Hey JRP3, I saw the Wovel on TV (Discovery, Fine or HGTV) and think it's pretty cool. Npt much use for one me here in LA but I was wondering if inventing something like that makes a person rich?

    Yes, "rich" is a realtive term so given this forum would you/ could yoiu buy a Tesla now or in the future?

    Actually that's my cousin's invention, I just help spread the word a little bit. He pretty much did it all himself, invent, prototype, patent, manufacture, promote, etc. He was pretty well off before the wovel so I can't say it's making him rich. He's hoping to get into a volume deal with a Home Depot or Lowes I think which could bring in real money. He said he got tired of seeing thing's he thought of brought to market by someone else. As an "idea" guy myself I can relate.

    And no, I could not buy a Tesla. Actually, I guess I could but it would be really irresponsible if I did and I might end up living in it if things didn't go well :biggrin:

    Nice of you to avatar for your cousin. I hope he gets the HD and Lowes accounts so he can buy us all Teslas! :biggrin:
