"Send e-mail..." Can't Post

It would be nice if a user could choose to have "Send e-mail notification on reply" be unchecked by default.

Also - I notice that after typing in the Subject title, when you click in the Post box, there is no visible cursor. It took me a few seconds to realize I could just start typing. Not sure if these issues can be addressed or if they are limitations with the board. Neither are biggies, thankfully. Smile

You can change the email default in your profile (It's in the FAQ - 2.18, btw) ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Go to Edit Profile and change the "Send reply notification checked by default:" box to "No."

I think the cursor thing is something we have to live with. We won't even notice once we get used to it.

Go to 'Edit Profile', then 'User Profile' and change 'Send reply notification checked by default:' from 'yes' to 'no'.

Beat me to it, Fingon, thanks!

Oh, there it is...

Gracias, Altaira! (We should all just put that in our footers for a while...)

Okay, clearly "[ ]" doesn't work.

Re: "Send e-mail..." [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't do that before I started my first thread, but I am still getting email from that despite the new default setting.

I like the new board, interesting mix of threaded and the "flat" style, so I will have to figure out the best way to switch back and forth.

Yep, same thing just happened to me. [In reply to] Can't Post

Registered, started posting, got a bunch of email notifications, changed my profile default, stopped getting emails.

And then 10 minutes ago just got another email, out of the blue.

Was the email you received a pm notification or a post reply notification? They have separate settings in your profile.

It was a post reply notification. This is an extract:

And I have both notification options unchecked in my profile.

I just replied to that same post of yours (then deleted my reply), did you received another email?
Let me know if it happens again.

Yes, I did get another notification.

Perhaps changing the notification settings in your profile only impacts new threads, and not existing threads.

Similar to how an avatar appears to work - it doesn't show up on posts you created prior to assigning one.

OK, I'm going to have to do some testing. Are you getting notifications from my replies to your posts in this thread?

No I am not. And I only started posting in this thread after I changed my notification defaults (which tends to support my theory).

and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.
