Is there any way to set the "E-mail me when someone replies to this post" option to default to unchecked when I post in a thread, rather than having to manually uncheck it each time?

I forget from time to time, and as I have commented on quite a number of high-traffic threads my inbox gets kind of deluged in pointless notifications. If I want to check responses to a thread I go to the forum.

The alternative if to add GZ to the spam senders list in my email settings, which means I might actually miss an important notification. Plus, I'm reluctant to do something that will make my email provider think GZ is a spam domain.

Follow the "your profile" link beside your avatar.
Choose the "edit my profile" link.
The last section provides all the settings you want/need.

Edit: beaten to it.

I invest lots of time and effort into trying to make Geekzone less "spammy" as possible. DKIM software installed, SPF records, reverse DNS, no full text in emails, etc.

I would love if users would consider doing their side too, by changing the profile options as pointed out above.

Have a good new year with less emails.

;)

Also you will note an unsubscribe link in those emails, so you can use that for when you start getting to many alerts for a particular topic: though if you then reply again, alerts make kick back in??




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
