Admins are not getting email notifications of posts
Fancy meeting you here!
Cecelia Cutler and I are admins of this site:
Even though I have my settings set to "all email," we've never gotten any emails when users post, nor when users comment on posts.
My dashboard settings > discussion is set to "email me whenever anyone posts a comment."
I do get emails when users request to join the group, and I got an email when a comment was held in moderation.
One possible related issue is that even though I'm "following" my own site, my site is not listed in "sites I follow":
My followed sites don't include this discourse 2018 site:
Here are two examples of posts I never got notified of (nor any of their comments):
I found several closed tickets that seemed similar, like this one, but I have no idea if they're related:
I don't know if authors are getting emails of new posts.
Any ideas? Lmk if you need more info, or if any of my details don't make sense!

Hi Syelle - Nice to see you :-D
It appears that the issue is the privacy level of your site. At the moment, sites must be fully public ("Allow search engines to index this site") in order for site content - blogs, comments - to appear in the activity stream of the corresponding group https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/analyzing-discourse-data-spring-2018-cutler/. And it's these activity items that trigger email notifications within the group.
For the time being, if you'd like email notifications, you'll need to switch the setting at Dashboard > Settings > Reading. Otherwise, we'll be looking to change this behavior in the next major feature release for the Commons. You can follow #8075 for more information.
