I don't know what the 'problem' is, but the only time I get notified to a 'subscribed topic' is when I am "quoted" in the post. I checked, and the correct boxes are checked in the Control Panel and I am subscribed to all the ones I am active in. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Wayne

If this doesn't work, we'll need to ask an MC:
Control Panel/Board Preferences/Global Settings Yes Yes Yes/set Time Zone/Submit

Let me know how it works.

Also, every now and then I have quit getting notices, even on a project I'm BC'ing, so nowadays I unsubscribe/resubscribe about once a month to any project I'm involved with.

:clap: :clap: :clap:

You are a magic worker. I went in, looked at it, didn't change a thing, and lo and behold, your message came up as a "notification". Neither you nor I had to do a thing, all you had to do was to tell me look at it and the problem was solved. I always know you were amazing. :!: :9:

Thanks,

The only issues I've ever had with the subscriptions is when I get a notification, then go look at the thread when not logged in.

When we do that, the system doesn't know you've seen the new posts, because it doesn't know you are you. ;) So it waits patiently, not sending more notifications, until you log in and view the thread.

So if you do peep in at a subscribed thread when logged out, be sure to drop back in when you're logged in again to reset the notification view status.

Hope this helps!

In some ways, it sounds just like today's politics.

Ch 5, Occupations

I'd like to give it a go.
Hello Phil. Your 1 minute test put a big smile on my face, and sounded good, too. Welcome. Chapter 5 is yours. Couple of things I encourage you to do:
1. Introduce yourself, here.
2. Read the First Post (on every project you sign up for), which will tell you all you need to know about how to name your file, where to upload your file, what to recite for the Intro, Outro, and anything unique about this project you may need to know. All are a wee bit different.
3. On this project, the Section number differs from the Chapter number, so be sure to name your file using section#, but introduce your recording saying Chapter #. This confuses many people.

I look forward to listening to Carnegie's thoughts on Occupations. I'm sure he has a lot to say.

So, more tweaking is needed until you get some kind of notifications of every post pertaining to a project you are on. I know little about "notifications" and less about "bookmarks". I just get an email notification and rarely lose a contact. But I do lose a few. It is frustrating. Wish I could help. I'm about to upload my last section, and I darn well want it to be seen without excessive delay. We just gotta figure this out! Stick with me. Let's do it. Someone in the know will come along.

Michele,

Section 28 PL OK :thumbs:

Very well read.

A couple of observations. At 6:12 is the word "Marquis". My entire life I have heard it, and pronounced it "Mar-kee", and was going to note it, but investigating it I found that "Mar-qwiz" is also and accepted pronunciation. I just sound queer to my ear.

Also, I really enjoyed in comments on the differences in the forms of government. I have often noted the advantages of the form we have and the wisdom and foresight of the Founders who instituted them. And also the comments on the Income Tax. :clap:

Hi Michele, no hurry, but I just wanted to make sure you saw that sections 5&6 were ready for spot PL :)

Still wondering who Eigenrac was. I asked Google, but she just wanted to sell me a piano.

And here is section 6 with fixes. I'm not happy with the way the noise reduction turned out, I will do that last in future. Maybe with different settings? There is a thin high metallic sound and it sounds like coming through a tunnel. I've tried several things to reduce the need for noise reduction. It's a mains hum. I even tried putting my laptop as far as the cord would reach and reading off my phone, but that was hard to do...


I want to thank you for your feedback- as a new reader it is very helpful. If you have any other feedback I'd be happy to hear- I know I need to slow down at parts and use a rounder tone...shocking how much one forgets to breathe :D

Thanks! I wasn't sure if you'd want a new reader's sticky jam thumbprints all over your book :wink: , but since you ask, I'd love to take another section, I'll look over the available chapters.
