This morning I woke up to 30 elfquest emails... about 6 threads I follow.
Is it please please please possible to cut back on the amount of email? Before the change, I got 1 email for a thread saying 'there's been a reply. here's the link to the thread. You won't get any more mail about this thread until you've visited it'.
Please please please change the email settings to do that again!!
PS I hope this thread belongs in the bugs section instead of suggestions. Cause it's really starting to annoy me big time.
That's why I have blocked almost all email messages in my settings!
Having only 6 threads you follow seems managable to do "by hand" or with the "notifications" function on the dashboard. Make the same awful mass of messages - but at least all delete automatically when you click "view" on the last one.
Not the best solution - but for sure the fastest when you want to avoid email overload.
Point is, I don't want to turn off email notifications. Because I'm very busy and one mail per thread would remind me to check the Scroll when I have time...
Point is ... this issue was addressed already several times immediately after the site change. Hopefully there will be more time now to take care of it. *crosses fingers*
I know, I replied to it back then too... I figured maybe now there's time indeed There were more important issues to deal with back then. Hoping it'll be fixed now
The point for me is, everytime you answer to a thread it subscribes you automatically, unless you tick off the Subscribe box everytime you post something. I don't want to subscribe for every thread I've ever posted in. If I want to subscribe to a thread whenever I want to, not at every post. So can the Subscribe box be off as a default, so you can click it on yourself whenever you want to follow a thread....
*ticking OFF the Subscribe box and sighing*
So much effort for posting one reply. E-mails I won't get, because I hate all this mail from forums etc....
