Title: "Notify" includes irrelevant posts from other forums
Post by: W0FM on April 19, 2013, 08:38:03 AM
When I click "Notify" on a post I want to follow, I receive email Notifications of other, unrelated posts that I have never even read.  I do get the notifications that I requested as well.  Is this a site glitch or am I doing something wrong?  What gives?

73,

Terry, WØFM

How many items do you have set up for notifications? 
Click "Profile" at the top of this page, then "Notifications and Email" in the forums' left menu that appears

I looked and you have not only many pages worth of individual threads (shouldn't be a problem), but also the entire "Elmers" category selected (at the bottom) - is that what you want?

Thanks Mike.  I never knew that link existed until now.  I need to take some time to clean it out. 

No, I never intended to be notified on an entire Elmers category.  I think I posted that I was advised of that and fixed it.  That was cockpit error.

Thanks again,

Terry, WØFM

:-)

The "Notify" link at the bottom of an individual thread (look below this post, to the right) activates sending you updates to that thread.
The "Notify" link at the bottom of the specific forum (say "Elmers") sends you notifications of all new threads to that entire (Elmers) forum.
