    I don't, but that's because my notifications are set that way.

        Hi sandylc.

        Your email address didn't show up as blocked in our third-party service so I'm not sure why your notifications have gotten hung up. We'll look into it.

              I suggest that everyone unsubscribe cause when this comes back you're gonna get a gazillion emails :(

                  I'm an unsubscribe devotee and frankly do not understand the utility or appeal of this feature, here or on any other board. Is there something I'm missing?

                    By receiving notifications, you don't have to constantly check the board to see if there have been new posts to the threads you're involved in. It's awesome!!

                      Is this really a question? You get notifications for posts on threads that you are participating in. To me, threads are an engagement with others and I like to go back and check, it's a nice break from work. It also enables you to respond to a post addressed to you.

                        I definitely go back and check but w/o the reminder. If a thread I participate in pops back up to the top 10 on a particular board, I tend to notice and check it out. I do like that new posts are fully exposed whereas the old ones are rolled up so it is easy to see a response. I check while I'm at work too - I host conference calls almost every day and that is an ideal time to 'multi-task.'

                        I think I had notifications activated when I first was on CH and they quickly swamped my email box.

                        tcamp, I'm really more on your side. I had never signed up for them, then did and the system went wacky so I unsubscribed. Just a few days ago I 'reenlisted' and there it went again. I'm about to unsubscribe again. And getting up in the morning to 40 or 50 is just plain annoying. I have to go through and read the 'real' mail and then mass delete the rest.

                        One suggestion for folks who find the number of notifications they receive overwhelming is that you could create a filter so that those notification emails go straight into a folder you designate in your email, rather than flooding your inbox. Then you could scan them at your leisure.

                            I went to setting just now and all it shows is to enable or not. Nothing about a "filter." I wouldn't want ALL email from CH to go there. God forbid, I should miss a "Note from a Moderator" :)

                              Hi c oliver.

                              The filter is something you actually set up in your individual email program, not a setting in your Chowhound account.

                              For instance, if you use Gmail, while you have a notification email open from Chowhound, select More from the menu at the top of the email, then Filter Messages Like These, and choose the parameters for filtering the messages. A good one might be to filter the phrase "New reply to" in the subject line.

                              Hope that helps!

                    Yep. And the last time, when it got 'fixed' I was bombarded til I unsubscribed to the feature.

                      I don't see any flags on your email address either. And I wasn't clear from your reply, are you currently subscribed or unsubscribed to notifications?
