    Simply; must I uncheck the box near "post comment" titled "send me notifications when other members respond" every single time I make a post to NOT receive emails every time someone comments on a thread I post in? I've already disabled all e-mail notifications in my profile/settings, yet I still am getting automated emails (I have 50-100 emails spamming me about people commenting on threads). I searched for this topic and couldn't find it anywhere on the forums

    To answer your initial question, yes you must uncheck the box to not receive notifications about the topic.

    In case you're not aware, to turn off thread notifications... go to the thread, at the top there is a link to "Stop Watching Topic" (something like that). Click that and you'll stop receiving emails for that thread. 

    I know there in the process of updating the website/forums, so this is unlikely to change til that happens.

    @nanfoodle  Heh heh, wish I could help you there. There are advanced notification settings, but it appears you've already been there. I can't even quote your remark without the whole thread being cut off, so I'm guessing it's just a bug.


    @Archaen Thank you for the insight. Seems "Stop Watching Topic" is the most efficient option, so that you don't have to repeatedly uncheck the email box every time you comment (the email box will be rechecked if you make another comment in the same thread). Thanks again!

    I've found that checking/unchecking the box -or- using Watch Topic/Stop Watching Topic works for me.  One thing I've noticed, though, is that the box seems to get checked or unchecked seemingly randomly when posting from my phone sometimes.
