keyplyr, the edit notations eventually seem to dissolve, but until then I can see your point. When you remove the mail notification you can leave a notation in small type that you turned mail off or made a typo, which most of us do - it's not uncommon. I generally assume it's fixing a typo when I see them.

Thanks for your reply Marcia. Yes, there are several options to "deal" with this glitch and I'm sure most here have become accustomed to it, however since I did not edit the post in the first place, it is misinformation. Why the unnecessary hassle... why not just fix it?
Sorry for the criticism about an otherwise exceptional resource. I do appreciate all the people, information, tools etc that WebmasterWorld freely offers. Guess I just take offence to the fact that readers see a statement that I did something which I did not.

keyplyr, there's also been a time when a member wanted to turn notifications off because there were dozens of replies in a thread and it was past time to edit, so they stickymailed. That takes a mod or admin to do. What I did in that case was turn it off for him and leave a note in the posts on what was done and that it was by member request.
Turning email off is a bit different from editing a post. Thanks for pointing it out; it's a programming issue and I'm sure it'll be looked into.

He he, a couple of times now I have checked email notification and had to cancel because of the mails theatening to flood my hotmail account. SInce I'm here every free moment I can't think why I wanted notifying, but the responses have scared me a bit......

I resemble that remark!! :-) You did help me out on that one and I do appreciate all the help and quick responses I have received to sticky-mail requests from the staff here in this forum!!
