I don't want to receive notifications on new replies to particular threads that I posted in. How is this done? I clicked on the "notify" button on the thread, but that didn't seem to do it.

If you go to the "Profile" button on the top menu bar, it will bring you to a page where you can change your profile by clicking various links on the left. If you go to "Notifications and Email" there are options there where you can set how/when you get notifications.

Thank you for the information. Hopefully I set it where the default it not to get continuous emails from now on. I never liked that.

I still seem to be having trouble.  I checked no notifications under the profile options, and I clicked notify on the threads that I didn't want to follow anymore.  However, when I go back under "show new replies to your posts" the posts still show up that I want to unsubscribe from.  I find it very difficult/inconvenient to search for individual threads under profile/notifications to search for each post i want to unsubscribe to. Am I missing something?

Hmm, I'm not sure what to tell you. On the "For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me of:" I have it set to "Nothing at all". I hadn't even thought about notifications and how the system handles them until I saw this thread. Usually when I come onto the forum I just click "Show unread posts since last visit" and then read the threads I'm interested in. I'm not sure what exactly the issue is and how to fix it... Undecided

I checked your account and you are subscribed to four pages of threads.  Do you want to receive absolutely no notifications whatsoever? If so, note that in the section "Current Topic Notifications" there are headers "Subject", "Started by" and a box. If you tick that box, it will select every thread in that list. At the bottom is a button that says unsubscribe. If you click that, it will unsubscribe you from every ticked thread (which, if you used that box at the top, will be all of them on that page).  Do that for each of the four pages and you will be completely unsubscribed.

I think something is "up" with the topic reply notification system again.

Well I don't want to unsubscribe from all of them, just several.  Ya, I have 4 pages of them so when i try to search for one to unsubscribe from, it can be a tedious process.

After Fr. Anastasios apparently messed around with the system to fix it, were you ever able to get things straightened out Ortho_cat?

The "show new replies to posts" page at the top of the main index page of our site, or the "Current Board Notifications" under your Notifications and Settings page?

The former.

Again, the method that I'm attempting to unsubscribe from individual threads is by clicking on the "notify" button on the thread.  I click on it and it says, "are you sure you want to disable notification of new replies for this thread?" and I click yes.

While that should work, have you tried just ticking the threads in the Notifications panel in your profile and clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom?

I just looked, and it appears that these threads that keep popping up are not on my list of curently subscribed topics.

OK. I will keep looking at this. There is one other person reporting a similar problem to yours. There may be more, as well. Topic reply notification is one module that seems to always get messed up.

Thank you, Father.  I tried something else also. I went to a thread that I was "unsubscribed from" (but still getting new reply notices from) and clicked notify and said allow new reply notifications.  The post then did show up under profile/email and notification settings.  I attempted to manually unsubscribe from the thread by locating it in the list, checking it, and clicking unsubscribe. However, after doing this, the thread still pops up in my new reply notifications.

Dear Users,

I had the server company increase our number of allowed emails per day, which should have stopped them from getting backed up, which when they tried to all be sent the next day, was crashing the mail server and starting the whole vicious thing over.

Therefore, topic notifications should be working properly. Those who want them should be getting them as soon as they are made (not a few days later or in big chunks) and those who don't should not.

I know that nothing is perfect though, so if you think it's not working for you still, please let me know so I can continue to investigate.

Thanks!

Father, it appears that I still am having this same problem. It's not that big of a deal, just kind of annoying.
