    Thread Subscription Problems

    I've been having this issue for three days now and I can't seem to fix it.

    Whenever I post it automatically subscribes me to the thread. It doesn't send me emails, just keeps the subscription in my user cp. It's somehow set as the default.

    I've gone into options, and nothing is checked that would subscribe me. I don't have the "have emails sent to you when someone posts in a thread you posted in" checked.

    I've deleted cookies. I've turned my computer off. I just don't know what's going on. I don't want to be a pain, but if anyone else had this problem and knows the solution I'd appreciate your help.

    The exact same thing is happening to me today. I don't know why either. Help!Wait: when I went to post this, there's a little line below the message box that says "Subscribe without email notification". Let me go uncheck it and see what happens...

    Ok, I changed it to no subscription, so we'll see. But now I look down and it's badk to "subscribe without email notification"! What's going on? I know I never changed it to subscribe anyway...unless my cursor accidentally did it. Hmmm. Well, Greenie, open a reply and then go down under options to "thread subscription" and make sure it says "no subscription". Are we going to have to do this every time we post a message?

    Yup you gotta do it EVERY post. I can't tell you how many times I forget to do it and have to go back and edit.

    It's pissing me off. Glad to know I'm not the only one though. I don't know what I did.

    I checked out both your profiles, and you were both set to "subscribe with no notification" as your default behavior. I turned them both off, to "do not subscribe"...

    John, I have had this problem also. I cannot find this fix in my profile. Am I looking in the right place?

    Bless you John. I don't know where I went wrong, but you've ended some annoying frustration. Thanks!

    There, I changed it for anyone who had "subscribe with no e-mail notifications" to "do not subscribe" (since, what's the use of subscribing to a thread if you don't want any notification?)

    Thank you, John! I don't actually know what "subscribing" to a thread does...but I was perfectly happy not subscribing so all is well now. Thanks again.
