Ever since Bleeping Computer redesigned their website I get hundreds of notifications for posts that I didn't start. How do I stop them? Although I hope I'll get an email notification about this post. Thanks

Notification preferences were reset to defaults when the site was upgraded unfortunately. I tried to fix it for most, but it appears you snuck through.

Make sure By Content Type = Forums and By Section = Forums. You should see a subscribed forum. Unsubscribe to it so you do not see new topic notifications for those subscribed forums.

Morning Grinler,

 

     It seems I'm experiencing the OPPOSITE problem since the site redesign.

 

I made a reply to an existing topic post (and clicked on the "Follow this Topic" link).  Then, another person posted after I did, but I never received any email notification of the post.

 

Any suggestions on this one?

 

Many thanks!

Hi Blade,

 

     Thanks very much for the info at the link you provided - - I had not seen that.  I've made the changes to my Settings/Notifications.

 

Best regards!  bounce.gif
