The only thing I noticed is what happened this morning.

It seems I started getting emails when people make comments after I did on some threads.

If that starts happening on every thread that I made a comment on, it could be a couple hundred emails per day, which would have to be stopped. I'll see how many of those come over the next couple days, before I worry about making it stop.

Same here. I went into My Profile and changed that setting. I don't really need it if I'm here half the day anyways.

I only had two, I can't imagine what you'd get a day Bear

Are you guys subscribed to the threads? I have my set up so the only time I get an email is if I get a PM and I never subscribe to any threads. I just go back and read them if I want to see something further

Yes.. the upgrades went through without a hitch it seems..
  • Thumbs up - Now when you give someone a thumbs up using the icon at the bottom of each post, it allows you to leave them a message as well. With this upgrade, we are now beginning to quantify the  thumbs up data for each member which can later be rolled into an overall reputation score like we used to have. The ability to do that is there we just want to be careful how this is handled and that it is setup so that it benefits the site and does not open a can of worms. Stay tuned for more on that a little later.
  • Commenting - You are now able to comment on each others wikis, albums, pictures, and product reviews which is a great feature in my opinion. This will require you to go in and adjust the setting if you do not want to receive notification when someone comments on these things by you. This is a different setting than what is setup for your normal subscriptions. To turn off comment notifications by email, go to you User Profile page then click on "Edit Account Details" then uncheck the options under "Comment Notifications Preference".
  • Bumping system for Buy/Sell/Trade - There is now a way to bump your listings in the Buy/Sell/Trade area of the site up to the top to get more exposure. However, to make it fair, it is setup so that this can only be done once every 72 hours.

Thanks for the instructions to kill that notification thing.

I only had 12 of them in 3 hours, but it was a slow morning.

Anybody know when these things will stop coming??

24 hours maybe? Hopefully less.

I know it's not that big a deal to delete them, but I'm not the only one who uses this computer.

I clean out my reply box first thing, every time I get on the forum. I don't need them coming to me.

Explain to me what you are seeing, Bear. I've been on all day and haven't gotten anything. Are you getting comment notifications?

I'm getting them too. Can you just get the Subscription update everyday like I'm getting without getting all the individual subscription thread notifications.

Got about 50 so far----38 since I unchecked those two boxes.

Bear.. I have a couple of questions in trying to correct this issue with you receiving so many emails.

1. Are these emails notifying you of a comment that you have received? Copy one into a PM and send it to me if possible so I can better understand what you are receiving.

2. Prior to today, do you normally receive any notification emails on PM's, comments to your posts, or any of your subscriptions?

Thanks for your help...

LOL---No I'm not even close to fast at typing with one finger.

I used to get PMs emailed to me & I got your monthly bulletin. This was perfect.

Now I get notified every time somebody makes a post on every thread that I have made a post on. This could add up really fast! I just went over 100.

I'm glad I have a Terabyte of memory on this thing, or I'd have to stay up all night deleting emails.
