LJ Email

Wouldn't it be great if LJ actually emailed me comments like my preferences say? If I check to send me a copy of MY comments, it sends them no problem. I sometimes get emails of other people's comments, but they are either a couple from a week ago, or about 40 at one time spanning weeks.

It really sucks to have to keep reading back through posts to see if there are new comments.

Yeah, I just filed an official trouble ticket with them. We'll see what happens. When they contact me, I'll let them know I'm not the only one.

I'm having the same problem. Only I was blaming it on my e-mail provider. I got a half dozen notices that

Make that blinky icon stop!!!!



Okay. Where was I? Oh yeah, I got a bunch of messages in my e-mail inbox that someone at LJ was trying to talk to me. No clue who or what they were responding to.

Guess I shouldn't be so quick to curse my e-mail provider.

But now I'm going to bed. I'm still seeing flashes!

Er, isn't that what http://www.livejournal.com/tools/recent_comments.bml is for?

Doesn't that only tell you comments on your own journal, not replies to comments or questions you've made in friend or community journals?

heh. get outta my head!

actually, that report is helpful.
i changed my default LJ link to the portal, so i see the comments made in MY journal.
but, that list only shows you those, and comments that YOU made in other journals - not replies TO the comments you made in other journals.

so, yeah. you find yourself going "oh, i never looked to see if SO AND SO answered me in her journal..." and digging in past posts. a lot of them get left behind, too.
