How to change the type of Forum notifications?

2021-04-11, 0:05 AM

How do I get the forum to stop sending me emails on the new "rank" I have. This is an unnecessary email. It looks like we can only receive all emails or none.

Am I missing where this is in settings?

Hello,

 

No you're not missing any setting and, if my memory serves me right, the question has never been raised before, a fair point though. I hope you can accept they are not spam but rather intended to inform someone they have been active and as such "rewarded" by being moved up in the ranking, also a little bit of gamification if you like, not uncommon within different communities.

 

To better understand how annoying they might potentially be to someone could you share how many of these notifications you have received since joining the Community?

Thanks

 

Andy

Most forums have the ability to allow or deny notifications/email for all the levels of activity. My suggestion is to change it so forum members have the ability to be notified by Email Only, In Forum Only (i.e. when you are actually here), or both.

Here is the list of settings that should be available:

1. Ranking

2. Kudos

3. New post in a subscribed thread

4. Reply to your post

5. Subscribed to a thread

6. New Message

 

It's not necessary to notify a forum member of every single bit of activity. And right now the forum is an "all or nothing" system. Ranking does not prevent members from posting so it's just "for fun". And that's fine, but getting notifications should be granular.

This is from my experience of participating in way too many forums. :)

Is there a way to delete old notifications in the feed? I've only been on some of the forums for a short while but I have long list of the things. Well maybe I exagerate but if I participated in a forum for any length of time the list would get huge. I don't need to keep them all. I've stopped subscribing to forum topics for notifications now.
