    There's been 3 instances of me being tagged lately, and none of them have triggered the usual alert I get for mentions. I'm confused that it's not working, is there an option I accidentally hit somewhere, or is it another issue entirely?

    Was it in a blog, @Chary , or in a post like this?

    Pretty sure blog alerts don't work.

    See? Wasn't alerted for that either. They were all in threads across the forum. @grossaffe

    Okay, if that didn't work, then something is wrong. I got the alert from your post.

    Did you check your 'alert preferences'? There is a checkbox for being alerted when someone mentions you.

    Just checked, everything is, and has been check marked to alert me. Then, as soon as I was going to reply to this thread, I got an alert, saying I'd been tagged! Really delayed response (10+ minutes) on that, though.

    I know that edited posts don't properly call people.
    But you're not the only one that experienced it.
    Apparently, CrazySka called me in a post which I never received a notification of.
