I keep getting email notifications

I assume under User Panel, Notification Settings/Posting Notifications, one is to not click on email if they do not want to receive notifications if you are quoted, mentioned or upvoted.
I haven't clicked on any of them and keep getting notifications in my email account. Today I had about 30 of them.

I am doing it correct? I do not need to receive notifications each time.

Thanks

Can you post a few examples of the emails you're receiving? Once I see that I'll be able to better answer your question.

Got three email notifications today, at 10:50, 11:10 and 2:55 pm. But no other ones since. Hmm?
I'm okay receiving them as notifications on this site, but I'm getting every one of them on my email account.
Here's the last one I received. Do you need more?

Dear poleman,

tk1000 has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled -

Here is the message that has just been posted:

’Shithole’ Comments

U.S. Senator Corey Booker tore into Department of Homeland Security
Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during the latter's appearance before a Senate
committee Tuesday, calling her "complicit" and describing his "tears of
rage" upon hearing of Trump's "shithole" comment.

@poleman those are subscription notifications. You can find them and edit or remove the notifications on your subscriptions page: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/ucp.php ... subscribed

You might want to check your subscription default settings here as you could be subscribing to threads automatically that you didn't actually want to: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/ucp.php ... &mode=post

Actually, I think the subscription code may be a bit buggy. I have an Email (weekly) subscription to the thread below, and today I have been notified four times about it. My initial suspicion was that the bug was sending weekly, but then once for each post that day, then quiet until the next week rolled around. Looking at the post history of the thread today, that doesn't seem to be the cause, but it does not negate the fact that I was email 4 times about this thread today. I noticed the original post says it was last edited January 7th, but that can't be correct as current deals are being added there; perhaps related.

Can you post a screenshot of your subscriptions page and make sure that thread is in the screenshot?

Also what are the timestamps on the emails you received that day?

8:29PM: "there have been 13 post(s) to this thread,the last poster was PierreS299131"
1:12PM: "there have been 12 post(s) to this thread,the last poster was trystee."
12:59PM: "there have been 12 post(s) to this thread,the last poster was trystee."
12:52PM: "there have been 12 post(s) to this thread,the last poster was trystee."

Can you remove the subscription and then resubscribe using the same weekly setting? Let me know if that fixes it or not.

Will try but we won't know for a week or two; fingers crossed it's that simple a fix.
