I know I'm one of the few people who uses the email notice features, but I do. So a few minutes ago Brad replied to the Daily news thread. I clicked the link and it took me to the Queen is dead thread. I replied in the Daily News thread and then Brad did again and the link in the email sent me to the Queen is dead thread again.
The email link is:

Weird! That functionality is buried deep within vBulletin's code and isn't configurable. It's probably a bug that they may have fixed long ago, but we've been stuck of the same version of vB for ages...

Maybe blast your cookies and recent history and try again?

Hmmm....

I don't use Private Browsing except when specifically working with code and want to see edits live. However, on request I emptied caches and now it takes me where I should see.

This makes me wonder if this is tied to a different issue I've seen with the new posts button on the "View Today's Posts" link. Here lately I've not been take to the newest post. Instead I would be taken to one from long ago depending on the thread activity. This was talked about here in the Feedback sub. (Side note: Holy crap it has been over a year!)

Of course, right now all threads are read so I don't have the button the test with. The caching seems to be the problem though.
