That's still a good question Charlie, and maybe you could explain what changing my vBulletin General Setting to "through my control panel only" actually does.
And also why there was such a long delay from yesterday afternoon when I made the change until this morning before things started happening, and is that the proper setting to use???
It has always been instant notification with all my vbulletin forums I am a member at.
And by the way, the incident notification still works on all the other forums I'm a member at. My only vBulletin problems I've ever had have been at this mac-forums site, and most of those being within the last 6 months and basically no changes have been made at my end.
I'm not even sure the last change I made is the correct one or just something acting like a hack.
Could you confirm which is the correct one to use???
