Is this function coming back?

Like in thread alerts that take you right to the new post.

Hi there, thanks for the note. You can check your Alert Preferences here: https://niketalk.com/account/alert-preferences

Please note that in order for you to get a new alert when there's a new reply, you will need to watch the thread to get this full function. Hope that helps!
doesnt work for me, it'll alert me for like 1 or2 threads I've posted in the short term but other threads I haven't been in, in a bit it doesn't give me any notifications and i have that alert preferences checked also.

I see. The issue at hand is: we are a big community so if we enabled that level of alerts (i.e. every time there's a new post in a thread, a user would get a new alert regardless of the last time they visited the thread) is overwhelming and impacts the performance of the site. As a half stop, we provided a My Activity view for you: https://niketalk.com/forums/activity - This area allows you to see the latest activity in the threads, posts that you follow in a more passive view.

As a note, you won't receive alerts again unless you visit the thread in question.

kobe824 kobe824 We are testing out some increased level of alerts for certain areas. Hopefully by the end of our testing, we'll be able to get you the alerts you would like!

thank you very much for your reply. Didn't Niketalk always notify you on the pre-update about every new post in every thread? I miss those days haha but I understand. The only thing annoying about the activity page is that you can't go directly to the new post, you gotta search through all the pages to look for the 1st new post you've missed which is why I stopped using the activity page, was too annoying to do constantly on threads that have high level activity. A new posts button would fix the problem but I'm sure I'm in the minority so no need to do it for just me. Thank you for the response.
