Looks as if whatever maintenance LJ did a few days ago (was either Dec. 21st or Dec. 22nd) also turned off my emailed notifications when people reply to my posts ... I WAS getting emails up until then and a few minutes ago is the first time I've gone into my settings in months so it was definitely them not me.

See that a ton of images (that I KNOW were there a short time ago) have disappeared from my Scrapbook as well. Another "enhancement" to the programming, one presumes. ***sigh***

Anyhow and anyhoo, I think I've now spotted and acknowledged all recent replies. And I've turned on LJ backup notifications as well as restored the email settings. So I should be able to hear everybody now.

Yes, definitely check your notifications section. It might just be a lag after maintenance or you might discover, like me, that your settings are no longer what you thought they were.

I'm happy to report that this morning the pages upon pages of those little "image not available" symbols in my LJ Scrapbook are once again the proper images they should be so you should be okay there. :-)

This hasn't always been the case with past mass image disappearances after LC maintenance, however, so any irreplaceable image I put in Scrapbook is always double backed up elsewhere. Much as I love LJ for communication the site hasn't been a dependable image storage since the new owners "enhanced" the old Photo Album by turning it into the new-and-improved-by-removing-half-the-features Scrapbook.

Edited to add: I did start getting email notification again, including one for your reply here, after doing the manual correction to my LJ settings. That may or may not have automatically fixed overnight along with the Scrapbook if I hadn't touched it ... best not to count on that though.
