disable email notification

this must be the most user unfriendly annoying forum system i've seen

now i'm receiving emails everytime there is a new reply on a thread i replied to

going to control panel i can't find the setting to turn this off

how can i turn this feature off? it should be off by default

not to mention the thing asking me to subscribe that pops up once in a while when i click on a thread

This may answer your question about e-mail replies. There is a check box you must have selected. Follow the directions in this thread. [webmasterworld.com...]

If you're being asked to subscribe when clicking on a thread, you must be clicking on a Supporters forum thread. Only WebmasterWorld Supporters can access the Supporters forums. [webmasterworld.com]

hi engine thanks that worked

regarding the subscribe form i'm almost sure it also shows when i click on a forum index(google seo forum, for instance) too, not only on threads.

Glad that worked.

Yep, any of those forums in that link I gave you is Supporters area, so you will get a subscribe message.

I usually like to get reply notifications to a thread via email, but sometimes a thread goes on for pages and pages and I lose interest. Is there a way to turn off the notifications for a particular thread at that point?

The only thing I can think of is making another post and unchecking the notification box (I haven't actually tried that yet). It seems like there should be a way to do it that I haven't found.

Yes, do as you suggest, or, edit your post, unless it was a long while back.
