    Quite a few times my alerts for Watched thread doesn't alert me that there was a new posting.
    I forget about the thread then later stumble upon it and noticed I missed an entire thread (it's says new on all the postings) when I had marked Watched thread.
    My watched thread alerts seems to work for some threads and not others. Don't see any particular pattern. Is there a max on watched threads? At most I usually subscribe to approx. 5 at a time.

    Might just be me.
    I scroll over the flag to see the alerts. And if I don't open that thread, then I may not get a further alert on that thread?
    The old alert gets bumped down and I forget about the thread. Then later open that thread and see a bunch of missed postings. That would make sense to me, so probably not a bug per se.

    I've never used the watched thread feature, so I'm not entirely sure how it works.

    but I would guess if you have unread posts in that thread because you didn't open it, you won't get another alert.

    Yes, after some detective work looking at all my settings and info, it's just my style of browsing that makes me lose track of the watched threads. 95% sure no bug now, though 5% dementia can probably explain the rest.
