Email notification

Post by SEAL » Sun Aug 01, 2010 7:08 pm

I have a little problem here. You see, every time someone posts in a thread that I posted in/started, I get an email that says: Dear SEAL, so-and-so replied to the so-and-so thread that you posted in. Now this can get kind of annoying, because if I don't check my email for a while, my inbox gets clogged up with messages from this site. Besides, I usually go here most of the time. I don't check my email that often.

I tried to turn this option off in my user CP, but it still doesn't stop sending me emails. Am I doing something wrong?

This is the right place to post this right?

I assume it is User CP > Edit Options > Default Thread Subscription Mode: you have changed. Existing subscribed threads use the setting it was when you first posted in them.

You will have to go to User CP > List Subscriptions, select threads with the checkboxes (you can do it a page at a time with the topmost box), and then in the box that says "move to folder", choose "No email notification" (or simply delete the subscription) and click Go.

Okay, I just did it. I wasn't doing it right before. Thanks for your help.

Good to hear you fixed the problem SEAL.

The reason I set up the email notification like this was because we'd get a lot of people who would join, post a thread, and then disappear. I had figured that they forgot; the email reminder seems to help. But I can see it becoming annoying if someone doesn't know how to disable it.

Do not ask me water gun questions by email or PM. Please post the question at the forum. Private questions and suggestions are welcome by PM and email. Also, I do not sell or buy water guns online.
