Unsolicited Notifications
« on: September 17, 2007, 10:26:51 AM »
For the last few days, I have been receiving email notifications of new replies on five different threads, none of which I have requested notifications on, and three of which I haven't posted in. Is this happening to anyone else?

This happened to one other poster. In your account profile, there is a space (somewhere) to disable all notifications. if you do this and then turn it back on it will work fine. There is something wrong with this function from our server but I will fix it once we move to the next home of OCnet soon. Let me know if you don't find what I am talking about.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

I went to:

USERCP > My Notifications

and unchecked:

Receive reply notification only for the first unread reply.


and

Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic.

Is this correct?

That's a bit overboard... Maybe your account is glitched?
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

I fixed it.  Go back to your profile, go to the notifications section, and look at that dropdown box.  You had it set at notify of all replies to your posts.
