I think it sometimes gets it wrong when more than one person are mentioned

I do get double notifications, but that is because I get them by mail and by taptalk. That works as expected.

   Maybe I did something wrong in my settings in Notifications and Email:

Quote
[YES] Receive forum newsletters, announcements and important notifications by email.
[YES] Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic.
[YES] When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please do not reply to these emails).

For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me: [Instantly]

For topics and boards for which I have requested notification, notify me of: [Moderation only if I started the topic]

Have you used the "Notify" button on threads as well as these options?

   In Additional Options... is always marked Notify me of replies. by defect. I think is marked because I marked Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic. Isn't?

Yes, that's true. But we were wondering if you had *also* used the "Notify" button (3 to the right of "Reply")?
If not... maybe try turning off all notifications, and then adding then back one by one, to see if there is a difference.

Okay, that makes sense - it got turned on when you replied to the topic.

Now, when you go to http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/board,7.0.html , does it say Notify or Unnotify?

Okay, so you are not getting double notifications due to doubling via Boards and Topics.

Do you use Tapatalk?

Okay, then we don't know what's happening. :-/
Can you try turning all the notifications off in your settings, and Save them.
Then try turning them on again.
