2 Issues: Email and Search

I’m having a bad day!

I’m not getting my Email Notifications and Waypoint says I can’t add this topic as something similar exists.
Now my 2nd issue: How do you search for other topics? “Search Waypoint” at the top left doesn’t do it.

Any help… please!

Apparently this post ISN’T like other ones then!

E-mail notifications are disabled and have been since June.

The search bar was also disabled back in June, we don’t know when they will return.

Ah right, okay.

So how do I know if someone has replied to my post?

Also is going through my Profile “Last 10 Posts” the only way I can find them again without having to scroll back through (MANY) pages?
