    Hello,

    I don't use the Tapatalk app, so email is my way of knowing what is going on here. I don't get likes very often, so I was wondering, is there a way to get an email every time someone likes my posts? :D

    a) strange interface that I can't quite figure out, also text doesn't show up correctly sometimes

    b) Most of my forum posting is from my Mac; I almost never post from my iDevices

    Fair enough. Although I've never faced the issues you mentioned there.

    No, sorry, that is not a function provided by the forum software.

    I am wondering why would the OP like to spam their own mailbox with an email for every like?

    Isn't it just easy to start using Tapatalk?

    Please don't. As much as I enjoy people liking my post, I get enough email :).

    Like I said, I don't get a lot of likes, especially in the last month or so.

    As for Tapatalk, remember, most of my forum posting is from my Mac.

    If you don't get a lot of likes, why not just check manually on a periodic basis?

    For example, a weekly visit to your account's "Likes You've Received" page:
    https://forums.macrumors.com/account/likes

    You'll have to be logged into MR to see your list, but I think the URL itself is the same for everyone.

    I believe that the forums have an alert that can be enabled for likes that would show up when you visit the forums.

    Yeah, I'm already using that. Problem is I don't even go into the forum unless theres an email. But thanks.
