I am subscribed to one busy thread and I get an email for every reply.  This morning I found I had 29 emails in my inbox.

Is there a way to set it so that a particular post/thread only sends one notification PER DAY instead of one per post?

@Scott_WWS I'm looking through the settings, but I don't see anything that would let me modulate the email notifications on such a granular level.

modulate?  on a granular level?  Winston, you need to get out more LOL

OK - how about we suggest it as a site improvement? - when people get a dozen emails a day from the same post, it isn't helpful it is annoying.

thanks!

I very much agree, so this is a great suggestion. We're in touch with the company that designed this software, so we'll see what can be done. I get those emails for every thread I post in, so I definitely know what you're talking about here. Ha.

Thanks for the suggestion, and I'll keep this thread updated as information becomes available with regard to this situation.

Really need to fix this.  It is a serious bug.

Also, I unsubscribe, come and make a comment and I'm re-subscribed again?

Checking the tool bars and not finding an easy way to NOT be subscribed every time I make a comment.

Unwanted email = spam.

=This forum is spamming me.

Agreed, and this will be worked on. Hopefully we'll have a solution within the month. My inbox is absolutely torn to shreds from this as well, so I want to resolve this issue as well.

The default has now been switched to NOT being subscribed to threads that you post in. It's now opt-in. My inbox is celebrating already. Thanks for the suggestion.

Just wanted to add that there is a button to switch off - "Notify me of replies to this post", but then I saw that the thread is old and the solution was found already.

I wanted to add a new suggestion. What about a button "Go Up" when you reach the bottom of the page? It will be much easier just to press this button, than scroll upwards several times.
