    I love having subscriptions on a forum, it makes finding the threads I'm interested very easy, which is the point. However, I don't like that if I am subscribed to a thread, it seems that I HAVE to get an e-mail every time someone else posts in that thread. After you get subscribed to 20 or so threads that see a few posts a day... well, you get the idea.

    So: am I totally missing a setting under my options, or is it an all or nothing (subscriptions + e-mail, or no subscriptions) type of thing? If I'm not retarded and I've interpreted the menu correctly, can this be changed? At least to have the option for e-mail notification? Here's what we have as options on a couple other forums I'm on:

    Default Thread Subscription Mode:
    "When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread."
    Do not subscribe
    No e-mail notificaiton
    Instant e-mail notification
    Daily e-mail notification
    Weekly e-mail notification

    The only option I see here is "Automatically subscribe to threads you post in."

    Thanks!

    I haven't received one email notification since I've been a member.

      Do you have subscriptions enabled? Here's what I've got set. Subscriptions disabled because every time someone posted in a thread I'd posted in, I was getting e-mail.

        Yeah, I've been having the same issue. I can't seem to find any setting to control this either.

          I think I just found it. In the Quick Reply box, there's a check box for Email Notification.

            I'm having trouble finding notification options at the moment. How has the check box for email notification worked?

              RE: Subscriptions

              So what you're hoping for is the ability to remain subscribed to your threads in the user control panel without receiving emails notifications every time there's a post?

                Not sure yet. I think it only works for the thread you're replying to. I just got a notification for this thread, so...

                Exactly. Posting in a hot thread can fill your inbox rather quickly.

                  Ok I'll look into it. It should be a simple matter of checking a box somewhere in my options but.... we all know that things are never as easy as they should be!

                    It's as easy as making the 'enable notification' checkbox by the quick reply pane un-checked by default. I use the quick reply 90% of the time, and until Tinman posted that I never took a second to see that the e-mail notification checkbox was checked lol
