Why is the default "subscribe to thread" on instead of off ?

Postby kingofnobbys » Sat Feb 15, 2020 6:10 pm

A recent change I've noticed and it's a nuisance.

I really don't want to be getting emails all the time that inform me someone has posted in a thread I happen to have visited or viewed or posted in .

Please set the to default globally to off so you must choose to subscribe manually in order to receive activity report emails.

Hi there,

You must have accidently changed the setting yourself if you previously didn't get notifications and now you are. You can reset it back here:

ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=post
User Control Panel -> Board Preferences -> Edit Posting Defaults

Do you realize I have been fighting this ever since I signed up, wow. It was that easy to fix. Well at least now I don't have manually unsubscribe to EVERY THREAD I post in anymore woohoo!!!!!!!!

Oh thank you, I was hoping there was a way to turn this off as as with all the emails it was driving my mom insane.

The site default is set to on, as many people would end up posting, and then not knowing how to find their topic again to know to "check on it". The notifications help most people know about replies to their topics, or topics they took part in.

However, as I think you've discovered, anyone can change their own default as well. :)

Yes but where do I unsubscribe to getting email notifications from any post replies? I still haven't found it, and my mom says she's still getting those emails.

I know how to Check my posts, So for me the emails are just a nuisance.

I posted a quick link to the setting at the top of the thread ;)

Also, to manage subscriptions already set...

ucp.php?i=main&mode=subscribed

Scroll to the bottom if it is a long list... you can select full pages at a time. Unfortunately, it doesn't have an easier bulk change.
