For some reason yesterday I suddenly saw my email inbox chock bang full of notifications of new posts in the Cheerful News thread. I never chose to enable and later disable this function in the first place but was pleased that it ceased a long time ago because I have no need of notifications for a site that I visit several times a day.
Anyone know why this has happened, if it will continue, and how do I stop it please?
So, what isn’t helpful (or appreciated) is people saying ‘that isn’t helpful’ and tagging busy admins when they could ask the community or work it out themselves.
The technology didn’t do anything - you did. If you don’t know how to deal with what you have done and thus how to undo it, that’s fine but please stop shooting the messenger. A bit like your latest RDV post.
Guilty as charged I’m afraid. I’m “lucky” enough to be sitting staring at a computer screen most of the day which allows me to keep half an eye on things but I can’t keep abreast of everything - especially as the site is increasingly active these days.
@David_Spardo - it sounds as though, with @Mark’s help you have successfully turned notifications/emails off, hopefully you won’t be bombarded any longer. If you are using a PC you can go to your profile, then preferences and you will find options for when the system sends emails, notifications or tracks threads for you.
Thank you, I knew what I had to do, just didn’t know how to do it? Hence the question to the whole community for advice which is what I thought we were all here for. Only when non was forthcoming did I ask the Team directly. Entirely logical and reasonable I would have thought.
Still wondering why, after over 3 years membership here it suddenly started doing it. It certainly wasn’t me, I didn’t even know how till @Mark pointed me in the right direction.
Not sure what the dig about the RDV thread was all about though.
