    email notification of reply

    Per the email notification settings: If you reply to a post, and the person to whom you reply has the following setting checked as yes,
    <hr>Do you want all replies to posts that you make emailed to you?
    <hr>
    do they get "re-notified" if you edit your original reply?
    Reason: I've been editing quite a bit lately and I don't want to "swamp" the poor poster with unnecessary emails.

    Re: email notification of reply

    I would say no they do not get re-notified.

    To test this why not modify the top post in this thread and I will tell you if I get notified...chances are NOT

    Re: email notification of reply

    I'm sure Jerry will confirm the results (or lack of) shortly but it's my recollection that emails are not sent for post edits. That can have a possible downside if the poster relies entirely on the emails to decide whether to logon and check the forums. If you add or change something significant, they may not see it.

    Re: email notification of reply

    So basically, if you don't get a second reply, it's fairly safe to assume the original poster has modified his answer <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>

    Re: email notification of reply

    I actually try to make a habit of modifying my original posts, thereby making any replies "in the works" meaningless and <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Most of us have to work at it, making a post more meaningless with each new edit. Only the masters of the art know how to compose a perfectly meaningless post in one go... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: email notification of reply

    Then my habit of modifying posts propels loungers to be meaningless postmasters <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    I could think of a few trailblazers who would wear the title with pride <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: email notification of reply

    Cool..... <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
    The many edits I've had to re-post must be because of the <img src=/S/newbrain.gif border=0 alt=newbrain width=21 height=22> I got for an early Christmas present.
    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>but then again my wife would probably tell y'all that there has been no difference and in fact, should ask to return it <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>
