Stop alerting me! (UPDATED) (AGAIN) Answered

Picture of

Today, i noticed 8 new emails. JOY! I have never gotten so many emails! Surely I must be beloved by all! Sadly, they were all from instructables. Oh well, I bet they bring good news! No. just comments. Lots and lots of comments. I wondered why I was notified, since I have never asked that they do so. I went to check my settings, and, will you look at that! I'm not supposed to be alerted when I receive a comment, because the box that should be selected should I want to receive said emails, is not selected! So, ibles, why are you telling me stuff I don't want to know?! UPDATE: The staff is aware of this, and asks that we be patient while they work on it. UPDATE 2: Rachel fixed it! Hooray! My inbox can be lonely and hungry once more!

I have just released a bugfix version of the site containing a fix for this. You should no longer be receiving emails if you've configured your account not to! For example, Keith-Kid, you should not receive an email for this comment - let me know if you did. Sorry about that guys, my bad.

PM the staff. If a lot of people can do it, they will notice. I have an idea! Let's all pm them! with a same title, so they notice it! Title: Why am I being alerted? I shall post this.

Hey, PM the staff about this, use the title: Why am I being alerted?

If a lot of these show up, they will notice. Spread the word.

We already know about the problem so don't bother PMing everyone. Hopefully it'll all get cleared up soon.

I wish they would go back to the old system. It used to say comment from keith-kid instead of 1 new comment
