:rolleyes: That would have got me but i saw it at the last moment. One thing that is good though is that now ( finally ) the default for "Include Sig" can be yes, to save much needless clickage.

That notiification really got me when I signed up 1.5 years ago, and it took me the longest time to figure out how the **** this had happened. I was sure I didn't click e-mail notification myself on EVERY THREAD. :)

Can't you also look up in your profile which threads you've subscribed to?

Yeah, it is an annoying feature, but most members do like it...dunno why. We would disable it, but it is better to allow each user to choose whether or not they want it on.

but couldnt you set it as default off? oh well, you cant have everything, nice forum you have here by the way :D

In the summer holidays i had a job @ Apple Computers at the distribution department. I got 130 e-mails per day there. You really don't get much time to finish other work if you constantly have to read and reply to a never-ending stream of e-mails. :(
Most fun was monday moring, when you received 100 e-mails at once from the past weekend!

Ever heard about message filters? I have a neat little, er rather big folder called "Forum Notifications"...

I think we should have the choice.
The option to set a default default for email notification.
But then of course that would have to have a default value and you should allow the user to chose that aswell.
So how about a default default default for email notification?
Oh wait, that would need a default value...

:rolleyes:

You can edit this option in your profile. Just click on the bullet for email notification, tell it no.

I've never used that option, because it always annoyed me with all the emails I got. I have enough junk mail to start out with (since my filters totally suck and catch next to nothing).
