Is it just me or are push notifications not all that reliable? I've received them and they do seem to be obeying the "sleep" time period I set up, but I don't always receive them when I should. I haven't received any within the past 24 hours.

Edit: just changed the time frame to 24 hours and got a push notification. Maybe that had something to do with it. I'm going to keep an eye on it though.

Let me know what you find, I did test the time based push messages, but there definitely could be a bug in there.

What time zone do you have it set for and what hours?

I had set it to 9 am to 10 pm in the NY time zone. I've changed it to 8 am to 11:30 pm.

It's also possible the push notices were clobbered by other push notices which is a limitation of Apple's push system.

I think what's happening is that if an update occurs during the "quiet" period, then no future updates will occur until I manually read the thread. So if a thread updates at 6 AM and again at 10 AM, no push will be sent for the 10 AM update unless I manually read the thread after 6 AM.

I'm not 100% sure this is what's happening, but it does match up to what I'm seeing.

Yep, that is exactly what happens. I'll have to think of a way around it, but I don't think that is likely to happen with the current way the push infrastructure is implemented. Once the forum sends a subscription notification to us, it will not send another one until you read that thread through Forum Runner.

This is so you don't get spammed every time someone sends a post to a subscribed thread.

I'll have to do some thinking on this one.

Well one solution would be to quietly make a note of the subscription update notifications made during the "quiet" period and then send a push notification once that time is over.

The problem with this is that it would effectively require one cron job for each push user not using the 24/7 notification setting. While it would work for a small number of users, I don't know how well it would scale as you add more users.

I've switched to 24 hour notification this morning, but am not getting notifications today.

Have you viewed the subscribed threads to reset the "sent" notification?

You need to view the thread through Forum Runner to reset this.
