being a newbie and I want to be more focused, I checked 4 categories in the ‘watch’ list in the User Preference. BUT, all conversations come to my mail inbox. I did uncheck and even mute these categories, emails still coming every hour and then.
any idea how I could reset my User Preference in this forum ?
watched categories :
- Rhino for Windows
You’ll need to set all the previous topics back to “regular” notification state.
Changing the category notifications preference only affects new topics created in those categories, not existing ones.
@sam do we have a querystring way of showing all the topics people are watching?
Yeah we do its on meta somewhere
found it via
thanks codinghorror and sam
FIRST, I uncheck all the ‘mutes’ and I don’t want to kill a kitten so I have nothing checked in the ‘watch’, ‘track’ and ‘mute’ in my preference and saved.
I assumed - I would still receive email notification on all existing threads in these 4 ‘watched categories’, until these threads are stopped. yet any new thread in these ‘watched categories’ will not be notified by mail.
before I make another mistake, may I understand that the ‘track’ is a ‘notify once’ on new threads and will not follow the rest of the conversion by notification ? I guess that is good enough for a updating purpose.
thanks and cheers
