    Is there a way I can get an email when someone tags me in a post?

    Under Preferences.

    Just click on the small avatar in the top right hand corner and Preferences is in the RH column. Click on that and the options are there.

    I don't see anything there about being tagged though?

    You need to click on "Alert Preferences" rather than "Preferences"

    All are ticked but I only ever get an email when someone sends me a private message.

    Have you checked your spam settings ?

    Perhaps try adding admin@petforums.co.uk (that's the email address that the notifications come from) to your contacts list ?

    I’ll try that, but seems odd when private messages come through ok.

    Im wondering if something has changed and you cant get email alerts of someone tagging you any more? Does anyone get them?

    I remember when i first joined, i was getting email alerts everytime someone liked a post i think - it was too much so i went into my settings and took off all the email alerts.

    So i have the same things checked as you @McKenzie but just get the little orange notification on pf next to my name and no email.

    Which is fine for me as that is all i want.

    What a mystery!

    @Lurcherlad was right - it is under preferences and not privacy.

    Thanks @tabelmabel but still no option for notifications when you’re tagged.

    Never mind, it’s not that important. I just wanted tagging notifications as I won’t be on much for a while but wanted to still keep up with stuff. But it’s in the too hard basket!

    No that doesnt seem to be an option. Maybe you could ask someone to drop you a pm if you're tagged?

    That would work:)

    I've not received email notifications when I'm tagged for ages...only PM or the occasional new reply one from ancient threads.
    My guess is something was changed with all the messing about behind the scenes so we just don't get them anymore.

    If you look just above this post you should see a caption on the right saying 'watch thread' . That might help.
