Is there a way to turn off the damn auto watch bullshit?

I am sick and tired of recieving emails to every thread I respond in.

And no just clicking the unwatch button after every post isn't going to cut it, I shouldn't have to take that step damn it.

At the bottom of a thread you post, just unclick the "email" box. I will sneak into the control panel and fix it as soon as I can though.

You have to do that on every thread?  That's driving me crazy too.

Go to the "My Account" button.  Then, click the "Preferences" Tab.

Uncheck the option that says "Always notify by e-mail when replies posted to topics you participated in" That will take care of all future problems. 

But for the older threads I think they are still set to "Watch Topic".  You may have to go click the "unwatch Topic" button at the bottom of any threads you have posted in previously.

Beej from now on, do your damn job.

I did that and kept getting e-mails.  Maybe it's from the older threads only.

Yeah just unwatch the threads.  You then should not get e-mails anymore.

Thanks Quattro. Yes it is a board default setting that I cannot change but if you go into "My Account" and uncheck the box saying that you want emails that will stop them. Also go in and "unwatch" anything you are currently getting emails about.

I like getting all those e-mails. Makes me feel important. :cool:

 

If beej ever e-mails me for real I might miss it, though.
