    Palmetto: Guess who else gets auto-subscribed to some thread alerts?

    Locked

    by seanferd ·

    Oh, and because I put a question mark in the subject field, Your subject is not in the form of a discussion. Post as Question ??. Nice try, boneheads.

    Anyway, I just deleted 50 unasked-for alert. Seems a bit random as to what I’ve been subscribed. So, you’re not alone.

      You need to think of TR Alerts as an [b]Adventure[/b] you never really know what’s going to turn up. 😉

      Works for me at least. 😀

        Though it seems my case of “adventuresome alerts” has cleared up. 🙂 I post rarely, so it was pretty easy to see that the alerts I received were from those threads where I made a comment.

        This seems to be the likely answer.

        It must have started happening to me quite a while after it was happening for you, as my history of unrequested subscriptions does not go back that far, and I’d have a crapton of them if it was happening back when I posted more regularly.

        Meh.

      I wasn’t getting alerts until I STARTED a discussion and asked for alerts on that one discussion. Now, despite not checking “Alert me when new comments are made” I new get alerts on any discussion I posted to.

        Then, again, maybe not. Everybody knows that virtual is free, foisted whether you like it or not.

          Question for the ages

          Why is it that when I don’t want something, and I find it annoying that I seem to be bombarded with it? Example: Alerts, Spam, Junkmail

          Corrollary
          Why is it that when I want something, and I ask for it, I can’t seem to get it? Example: I’ve been asking for a quote for 4 weeks now on the cost to upgrade a system. The sooner they get me the quote, the sooner we sign off on the project, and the sooner they get paid. You’d think with cash on the line, they’d get the quotes to me, but they still haven’t gotten all of the quotes to me.

          Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

          Won’t grow where you want it, but if it can function as a weed somewhere, it’ll grow there!

          Your Quote is as follows

          New system as requested 4,000,000.00 + GST

          I await immediate payment and after that I will think about supplying the product some time latter.

          My budget is $50 k or less, and I will only pay on time and materials basis.

      I explicitly turned on “Auto subscribe” last Friday. This following Monday I turned it back off. No difference; I’m still getting alerts for every discussion I post to regardless of whether I checked the ‘Subscribe’ box.
