    Subscription Notification Suggestion

    When I post on a thread, I want to subscribe to it. This works out well, but I don't want to get an email each and every time someone posts on the thread.

    Could there be a new notification option so I only get emailed when the thread changes from "no new posts" to "new posts?" That way my email would tell me which threads I should go look at, but my inbox won't be flooded if it turns out to be a popular thread.

    Go to, http://ubuntuforums.org/profile.php?do=editoptions, and set the "Default thread subscription mode" to "No email notifications" (look under the Messaging & Notification section 2nd down). That way whenever you subscribe to a thread no email is sent about replies to it.

    You can individually set email notifications for a thread in your "Subscrbed threads" list with the menu at the bottom right of the page (tick the thread first) and choose a type under" Update subscription type"

    Edit: the "menu" at the bottom right is a toolbar you need to click the arrow on to get the options you need.

    But will I be emailed when my subscribed threads become new? I want to be emailed to know whether or not there are new posts, but not every time someone posts.
    So basically I get an email when the thread gets marked as having "New Posts."

    Yes.

    You'd have to edit each of your posts to change the subscription type to "no email notification" or which every one you want it set to.

    If someone posts in a thread you have already read, it's marked as "new" so that feature is working as intended.

    Personally, I have mine set for "no email notification" and I just check the usercp for new replies to threads I've posted in.
