email notification of a post quoted by someone

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got an email a few hours ago saying someone had quoted one of my posts. The email indicated it was from "x" but when I went to view the post on the thread it was someone else that had quoted me....does this mean that the same user has two accounts, as determined by IP address or something? I'll forward a mod the email if needed....just curious if this is as intended or a glitch...

Sometimes someone will delete their own post, but the quote or subscription emails have already been sent.

 

In this case he deleted his and then someone else quoted you.

 

Thanks

Well, didn't get an email saying the other guy had quoted me....although the other guy did quote me at that time I do notice he changed the stock formatting of the quote a bit. So the notification email of a quote goes out before one actually submits a post? Or is there a way to completely delete one's post?

No you only get an email after they've posted using the proper quote button function. If they then delete that post, the email has already been sent.

Thanks....didn't even realize that little "x" in the lower left area gave you the option to delete your own post until now (nor do a lot of others who ask for threads to be deleted I suppose). Wasn't part of the old forum software, was it?

Sure, you could delete you own post before too.
