Bug "Following" Threads and Alerts Question

There are some threads I "follow" but do not comment in.. and of course there are threads that I comment in and as a result auto-follow them. But at times I stop getting alerts on them even if it has only been a day or so since the last comment was posted in the thread. I was wondering what causes the Alerts to stop? Is there a timer? .. and if so is there a way for the 'user' to adjust that to be longer?

Not sure if it matters, and just supplying info, but I usually sit with a browser tab opened to the "New Posts" feature.

It sounds like a bug. I've gotten alerts from a followed thread over a year after it was made when someone posts in it, so there can't be a timer. I'm not really sure what could be causing that.

(Moved the thread to our Help and Suggestions forum so an admin will see it).

From what I have noticed, its when i get a ton of alerts all at once. Or at least what should be alerts. For instance if i get 5 people to post on a thread im watching i usually only get 2 or 3 alerts and not all 5.

When they come in slowly i get all alerts just fine, seems to be only when there is a massive in take.
