Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email email@example.com.
Looks like there is a bug with email notifications. If I select “Notify me via email when someone posts in this thread” while creating a thread and come back to edit the post, the checkbox is unchecked.
