Read the forum guidelines
Day before last, and out of the blue, I started receiving email notifications about forum posts. Not just my posts, but EVERYBODY'S posts. I turned off email notifications long ago. And now they are turned back on. By somebody. Not me. I have tried to turn them off again in my forum settings. But when I hit the "Save" button nothing appears to happen. As in, nothing. Like the "Save" button doesn't work. And for sure if I log out of the forums and log back in, the notification check boxes are all checked again. I figured maybe it was a browser scripting thing, so I used a different browser. Same result (or non-result, so to speak). I used both Google Chrome (with scripting enabled), and Microsoft Edge (default settings).
I also tried using the "computer" icon/image in upper left of forum pages (per a suggestion in somebody else's post on this same/simiar issue) and made sure I wasn't subscribed to "daily digests". I wasn't. And again this morning, more forum emails in my Inbox.
So, I need a fix. I can write a junk mail rule, but what I would really like is for the forum settings to, you know, work.
Hey, Brian. Thanks for looking into this. But it seems some additional tweaking may be required. I just got another forum email notification, like, 15 seconds ago. And out of curiousity, what's up with the "Settings"? Why can't I tweak my own settings and make them "stick"?
Hey, Colleen. Thanks for jumping in. You read my original post, yes? Based on your reply I just tested things again, hoping maybe you had tweaked something. But, just as before, the "Save" button does not work. You guys really should fix that. But I am pleased to report that since Brian did his tweaking on my account the other day, I have received no forum email notifications the past couple of days. I'm happy about that.
