    I don't know if @Jonathan Edwards might be interested in this, for general interest? (I'm way out of my depth with it - so it's not a recommendation.)

    Well, I'm glad you are out of your depth too here, Bob! Never heard of Aicardi-whatsisname syndrome but that does not mean it might not be a very interesting lesson in mechanisms. If lupus is just 'less severe' in comparison it seems good that A-G syndrome is so rare. So far I am not sure about the autoimmune connection but it might be very interesting to know what grossly inappropriate interferon production might do to the nervous system. I think maybe I need to look at this, but I am suspecting it may turn out to be complicated!

    As an aside, I don't seem to get a flag up if someone does an @ to me. Not sure if some function is disabled (other than my memory for names and the nerves to my left foot that is).

    Ah, that explains why you always ignore me! Hehehe... You don't really, but perhaps there's alot of 'tags' (that's what they're called) that you've missed...
    There's an easy fix... If you go to the following settings page, you can choose what alerts you receive:
    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?account/alert-preferences

    The specific one you're looking for is the fourth one down: "Tags you in a message". You need to select that if you want to be alerted when your name is tagged.

    I've got all my options ticked/checked, so I recommend doing the same...
    (Except that you receive so many 'likes' that perhaps you'll get overwhelmed with alerts if you select alerts for "Likes your message".)

    And don't forget to click on 'save changes' at the bottom, when you've finished.

    I've got all those ticked Bob but I don't seem to get the flags. Or maybe there's a delay. I need to look in to this.

    I don't think I had to do anything special to get tagged.

    @wdb, can you help Jonathan? (wdb is our tech genius).

    It all looks in order this end, at least the logs are showing tag alerts were sent and were viewed.

    Thanks @wdb. It may be I am getting them but I have noticed in the past going back that I find tags I do not recall seeing. I doubt there is a major issue anyway. I did have a patch in September when my email went completely berserk so maybe that was it.
