How do i disable the auto-subscription on threads??
Its in your options in hte control panel. They were fixing the forum a while back and some peoples subscriptions got switched to automatically subscribing to everything.
Go to User cp,
edit options (on left) go to the "Messaging & Notification" section in the middle of the page, second box down - “default thread subscription mode” click “do not subscribe” in the drop down box
Then you will need to also manually "unsubscribe" to every thread you have been subscribed to up to when you make the change.
Ack, I just checked my e-mail account, and I had 575 subscription messages! Ack! I had never turned the option on myself, but it got turned on for me.
Yep, it got turned on for everyone in one of the updates.
I wonder how many new members have gotten upset thinking they're being spammed and quit the forum?
I worry about that too. It would put me off from a forum to sign up and immediately start getting emails before I even knew where anything was to turn it off quickly. Heaven forbid someone makes their first post in something like the Thread Killer Thread...they'll be getting emails for life!
Yeah, I suddenly was getting a good 50 emails a day from PF. That's something that should really be default off I think.
