For example, for some reason I just got an email saying you replied to this topic, here is what the email said:

"Hello ,

You receive this e-mail because you are watching the topic, "checking topics" at "Internet Bonsai Club". This topic has received a reply since your last visit. You can use the following link to view the newly posted replies, no more notifications will be sent until you visit the topic.

http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t8881-checking-topics#92989

If you no longer wish to watch this topic you can either click the "Stop watching this topic link" located at the bottom of the topic above, or by clicking the following link:

http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t8881-checking-topics?unwatch=topic

--
Internet Bonsai Club"


I clicked the second link and I will no longer be notified.

Maybe there was another software update. I noticed that my Gmail account had a dozen or two IBC notifications of watched topics. Since I have NEVER marked a topic to be watched, it's obviously a glitch somewhere.

I just checked my profile. There are two areas that offer to have the site notify you by e-mail when you have a message or replies. They were checked YES. I'd never done that, either. That's probably why I suddenly got all those notifications. So I'd guess a software change had a couple of new defaults. They are now checked NO.

So check your profile too.

Same here. Actually, I still get notification even after I unsubscribed.

Agree...I get notices that I am watching threads, but have never selected that option. Maybe Kev can chime in. Question

Hi,

you need to go into your Profile settings and click 'preferences' and then you get a row of tick boxes where you choose what happens ie to add a signature, recieve an email, and loads of other choices etc etc, default settings mean you get an email, untick the box and then you dont.

cheers Marcus

Not always, Marcus. I too am getting email notifications for threads I have posted in DESPITE having tried on many occasions to uncheck the relevant box in Profile. Kev has been alerted to the situation and I suspect it'll just be one of the occasional glitches thrown up by forumotion.

hi Fiona,
i'm only getting that happen on the american thread we are playing with at the moment, doing virts of a bit of raft material. I know if i re tick the box i get emails on every post so at least it is mostly working.

like you say, it sounds like a little glitch in the machine somewhere.

cheers Marcus

That's funny, I have the exact opposite problem. Even though all of my appropriate preferrences boxes are checked, I RARELY receive an email notifying me that someone else has commented. I'll have to pay more attention to the "watch topic" choice at the bottom of the page, maybe thta's my problem...

What seems to be happening is that when you respond on a thread for the first time you automatically generate the Watch this Topic function and it will remain there (even with clicking on the relevant bit in Profile) unless you click the Stop Watching function.

I've been playing around with things and that seems to be the general case - at least on Chrome. Kev is on the case however and no doubt will wave his magic wand at some point soon.

Winter? What winter?

We've had temperatures of 11Celsius (51Fahrtigrade) in the last week. That's practically summer for us in Scotland. Smile
I've had to take off five layers of sweaters and my sealskin underwear. Cool

PS to get that Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion I used a conversion chart that rather optimistically goes up to 50C. We usually have to sit in the oven to get that warm.

Try this:

go into Profiles. Go to the Topics Being watched tab. Unselect all you find there that you do not want to "follow" (there's a "select all" button at bottom of page. See if that does it. I've had no more messages since I zapped the 2 dozen of "watched" topics I found there.

John, you probably have a relic from a couple of weeks ago when the system went mad. To get rid of it you need to do three things:

first and second: go to Profile and make sure you have checked the box for not receiving notifications under Preferences. Then while you're in Profile, move along the drop-down menus to Topic(s) being Watched. If it's showing any, check the boxes then go down the page and click on the Stop watching the selected topics button. It will prompt you to confirm Yes or No to this.
third: after you have finished writing a response and posted it, go to the bottom right of the topic page (should be just under the latest post on the thread) and if it says Stop Watching Topic for Replies, then click on that. (It normally reads Watch This Topic for Replies and that should be the default)

If any more present themselves in your email inbox, do any or all of the above again.


Eventually you will get to the point where the system gives up trying to send you emails. At that point raise a flag and hope your victory is not short-lived. cheers

I, too, am still getting the emails. I did the above the first time I was having the issue, and it went away for a few weeks. However it is back again and keeps sending me emails from the same thread, even after I uncheck the box multiple times.

Did you go back into your profile and check the other two locations?

That fix immediately stopped all the unwanted mail for me.
