Constant Email Notifications

#1
I do not subscribe to threads, never have, never will.

For some reason just looking at a thread subscribes me to it and I am now being bombarded with 30 plus notification emails a day.

I have followed all the instructions, adjusted my profile settings and I am still left with a list of subscribed threads that I have never chosen to subscribe to, the check box on the side remains empty as I never subscribed to the threads in the first place.

I dont think it's me doing something wrong but I thought I should check first?

Simply posting on a thread automatically subscribes you to it unless you've chosen 'do not subscribe' via the General Settings page. You can manually do it though in the thread tools menu.

I've not come across this before - have you just updated your account to "do not subscribe" since starting the thread? Or was it like that anyway?

I just updated it to "do not subscribe"

Took some finding, I was expecting a tick box elsewhere or in the actual subscriptions screen, I was suprised it was set to subscribe as the default.

In case others are having this problem you can change the default subscription setting by clicking here:
