Question about Thanks notifications

There is a member here that whenever they use the Thanks feature I get a PM notification with their Thanks comment and some DC jibber jabber. That is the only member this happens with. If anyone else thanks me I don't know they have unless I happen to be in my CP and look.

In this Thanks PM I happened to notice a link if I wanted the PM notification feature turned off. And sure enough, I followed the link to my details and it had a checkmark next to it.

My question is: Why am I only getting the PM notification from this one member? Why not anyone else who has secretly thanked me?
When I Thank someone do they get a PM notice from me?
I didn't even realize we had this notification option, but if mine is checked it should certainly work with everyone, shouldn't it?

Pac, I get a notice from everyone. Not sure why you would only get it from one person. This is a question for Janet, probably!

Thanks for your reply.

hmmm, I wonder if it needs to be over a certain number of characters (words) to get the notice?

Maybe it's just one person thanking you, Pac!

I don't get comment notifications, but I do get them for Thanks.

I knew that was going to be brought up


All this time when I see a Thanks I visit their profile (if it's enabled) to thank them, but since Thanks are kept private for whatever reason it would be nice to reply privately in a PM. I just never realized we got these PM's we can reply to until today, when I took notice because it came from the same person.
And I've logged out and back in and cleared my cookies. That didn't fix it.

I promise I wont send you anymore jibber jabber. BTW, what is jibber jabber? LOL

Some Thank yous don't have any message. I thought you had to add one.

Now that's strange, I don't get Profile Comments in email, have to go the regular site.

I must just be special and have magic powers. That was fun, I've never used three of those four smilies.

Well apparently I get it from Fi now, too. But it's the first time one of her Thanks have come through in PM form, like Kay's...

Cerise, by DC jibber jabber I meant this:

OK, apparently I am getting my PM notifications now, too. I just got yours, too, LP.
I guess now the thing is to see if it stops again. Prior to now like I said, I only got them from Kayelle. I thought maybe something wasn't set right on my end... some kind of filter or something.

Poltergeist in the system, it was fine until someone noticed. Now it will be creating havoc somewhere else.

Isn't that the way it always seems? You may be onto something.
