Watched Topics

Postby Fufa » Mon Apr 11, 2011 9:21 pm

Is there a way to Watch Topics while not being flooded with email notifications every time someone replies? I've tried fiddling with settings but I can only seem to "watch + receive emails" or "not watch + not receive emails".

I want to be able to find the threads I post in (or watch creepily) easily, but the 10+ emails a day that get sent to my inbox are annoying.

on "eplaya forum index, on the top right, there is an option "view your posts", that will bring up every thread you've posted in, ever. not your posts, just the threads.

I send the ePlaya notification emails to the Spam folder, then just once or twice a day log in and use the "view posts since last visit" option.

I just click on the thread title and it changes the color so I can locate them on the page.

Hope this helps.

I use the same option when I check the site.

The only time I actually go through the main index is when I'm either searching for a thread or my browser crashes before I get a chance to go through unread threads.

Hmmm, I was hoping there was just some magical button I wasn't pressing.

I think I'll just mark the emails all as spam. The watched topics option at least keeps them all in one place, since I'm keeping track of topics across different forums. Thanks for the input though; I shall experiment with each of your other suggestions as well.

There is, but, it's in the back of Doc Pyro's RV and I'm pretty sure, he only shows it to certain people.

Let me guess, I need to find a golden ticket in my wonka bar wrapper in order to see it?

well, you'd have to ask Doc, but, I think you have the right idea.

What the hell is a wonka bar? If it somehow refers to getting naked, then Ygmir is correct.

ok Doc, maybe yours is a "gherkin bar" but it's still the same idea.

I blocked the eplaya notification email address on my hotmail, and that solved my problem. No point in checking email if I'm going to sign in here anyway. Kind of like having facebook email you whenever you have a notification/message/photo tag/not tag/etcetcetc :roll:

There is the checkbox for 'Notify me when a reply is posted'

On most forums there are more choices.
Never noticed the difference here.
But each thread can be unchecked.
You could also use a different mailbox for these.
Look for them or not.
I think the read or unread option is used by some.
Never works perfectly though.


And quite correct.
No fun of any kind here.
