• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have subscribed to a few threads and checked the box for "instant notification" but have yet to receive any notifications in my email inbox. Am I doing something wrong? I have checked that my email address is correct. I may change the email I have on file to another and see what that does.

Make sure that neither your email client nor your ISP is trashing the mail.

It's much easier to login to the site, click on "Your Account", click on "Forum Profile", and it will display the threads that you have subscribed to. Try that instead. ;)

While you are correct in that you can access the threads you are subscribed to, since his ID shows up, he is already logged in. For individual threads, if you want to check if you are subscribed, just click on the drop down where it says "Thread Tools", if you are offered an opportunity to "Unsubscribe" then you are already subscribed to the thread, if you are offered an opportunity to "Subscribe to this thread" then you are not.

As an additional note, if you are subscribed to a thread, and for instant email, you will get an email when someone responds to that thread after the last time you visited it. Given all of that, if you are subscribed and the proper email address is in your profile, then the email is getting lost somewhere on your end.
