They use email notifications to keep track of responses and have had issues with receiving too many emails in the past. They mention changing their notification settings and also discuss getting rid of certain subscriptions. The conversation ends with one person thanking the other for helping them opt-out of perpetual subscriptions and mentioning the complexity of forums nowadays.

I've just deleted about 300 :blushing:

Am I addicted to this place? I use the email sedning as a way of knowing when people have responded, it pops up on my screen.

I don't have any because I don't subscribe to threads.

Is there a way of just not subscribing to them? I kinda like them.

I subscribe but don't get e-mail notification. You can change the options in the user CP > Edit options.

I used to get an email every day when I made every day my birthday. Then I got a warning to stop, and the emails never came anymore. I was heart broken.

I used to subscribe to the Food thread and How Does Your Garden Grow, but since I visit about every day and hit "New Posts" that is not necessary. No PF notifications in the Inbox.

Thank you. I was wondering how to opt-out of the perpetual subscribes.

Forums are a lot more complicated these days.

hmmm... I have a new topic idea...

When I first started at PF I was taking an extended vacation, so I dug in and carried about ten involved debates at a time. One DAY I received over 200 emails.
