E-mail when a post is replied to?

Instead of emailing or messaging the Admins or Mods with technical support questions or comments about the site, we prefer you check here to see if someone else has had the same difficulty or has made the same suggestion. What you're after might have already been posted and addressed here or within the FAQ. If not, please post a detailed description of the problem/suggestion and someone from the HST team will address your needs shortly. If you can't login/post and are unable to reset your password on your own, you may contact us directly.

By the way, the link in those emails to change your notification settings is incorrect. Go here instead: ucp.php?i=main&mode=subscribed

Hi Eric,

Today I received a "Topic reply notification" after posting a reply to a topic last night. I have never requested subscription or notification. Could be a bug in your notifications. Here is what I see when I go to the unsubscribe link you just posted:

I'm going to click on that "Unmark all" link at the bottom - hopefully that will reinforce my previous default status of never asking for any notifications.

Hi Eric,

Addendum to my post from 2 minutes ago - I just checked the Manage Subscriptions link again, and now it says I am watching this topic, to which I just posted! Seems that it is now assuming that you are watching all topics to which you post.

Hi Phil,

Sorry to hear you're having problems. Thanks for reaching out.

Can you please confirm whether or not the setting in the screenshot is set to "Yes"?

Hi Eric,

Yes, in the User Control Panel posting defaults section, "Notify me upon replies by default:" was indeed set to "Yes". I'm guessing that's why I started getting notifications after postings once you re-enabled the notifications feature? And if I set it to "No", I will stop getting them?

Yes and yes. Set it to "no" and then let me know if you get anymore unwanted email notifications.

Hi Eric,

OK, I set this preference to "No". I'll let you know if I still keep getting notifications of replies to my posts.
