How do I stop getting the replys to a forum post by email?? I've got 60 emails so far today and its getting f*cken annoying.
I have unchecked the boxes in my profile but am still getting emails.

Is there instructions in the email notifcations you signed up for stating how to click a link right there and then to kill the notification for that forum thread?

I wonder if their could be an option that a new e-mail notification for a thread isn't sent until you've responded to a previous one? That way if you've been away from your e-mail for a couple of hours and you're monitoring a busy thread, you'd get a single notification for that thread that lets you pick up from where you left off.

TheRich received 60 notifications and didn't read any? It is a simple email with two paragraphs. The first is a link to the discussion itself, the second a link to unsubscribe.

There is no excuse for that rude post.

This requires a change in our scripts. I want to do it but it won't be done until we have finished the site redesign.

If you do implement it, can you make it an option to have it the wya it is now please?

Because I actually find it quite useful having each email sent to me. Sometimes I forget about it, and will delete one, so if i only recieve one email, then it means that i will forget about some threads and not reply..

Yes, I was thinking of having it as an alternative for the current one.

It's good to hear that the option is coming. I do find it annoying to receive multiple emails about the same topic, but not enough to "rage" about it :)

Will the changes to make the emails work like other forums also make the new flags work like most other forums since they both need to know when you last visted a thread?

If you could, having a list somewhere in your profile of threads you subscribed to (possibly with an unsubscribe feature) would be handy as well.

This is a good suggestion. I saw something similar in another forum other day.

No, haven't thought of this. Not sure if we need it really.

Would save you reinventing the wheel for a lot of features that are standard on almost all forums thesedays..

Initial migration and integration would be a pain I imagine though.
