getting doubly subscribed to threads

Two recent threads I've posted in are each listed twice under "My subscriptions". (how can you subscribe twice?)

Also, I thought I had config options set at one time to default my posts to 'don't notify', yet 'auto subscribe'. (i.e. just appear in the subscription list, with notifying)
I see that each time a post is made, there is selection box on the edit page where under My Notifications you can choose ON or OFF.
ON seems the default.
Is there a way to have OFF be the default?

Do the duplicates have the same thread ID numbers? Can you post or PM me a screenshot?

Here is a capture of my subscription page.
I don't know how to determine "thread ID numbers".

Thanks I've sent it over to a dev to take a look at. Thread ID's are just the # at the end of the thread's URL. This threads thread ID is 2133737 for example.

@arisk looks like it is a general issue which affects all users. A fix is being put out today which should resolve the issue. I'll post an update once that's been pushed out.

Thanks for reporting this!

We’ve fixed it and also cleaned up any duplicate subscriptions.

It's back, plus if I post and choose no notification from the options, I get a notification anyways.

Sorry about that. I've just released a fix that should prevent this from happening going forward; as for the dupes that were already created, I'm going to find and remove them tonight when the traffic is lower, because the operation could impact performance. If you can't wait until tomorrow, you can manually remove them on your subscriptions page.

dont matter as it will be read by moderator. That is why I posted. And it was at least 20-30 mts before this. The thread was created at Oct 30th, 2017 11:54 am and I had problems before that time. I have no time to create thread as by the time mods read it the problem will be solved.
