Stop alerting me! (UPDATED) (AGAIN) Answered

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.

Nope! Last one was yesterday! Thanks!

My inbox can be lonely and hungry once more!

LOL!

I have over 3,000 emails from Instructables..

Please categorize things like this properly in the bugs sections.

THe same thing is happening to me!

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.

>:( It was supposed to attach...

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.

Oh, sorry then.....*sniff* Jus.....just trying to be helpful.....

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

Wow, it said that even before I joined?! I am a prophecy!!

Yeah, I agree with you, the new new system is not working right.. :(

Ahh! I am the victim too!!!! :(
