Hi Hilly (😉)
"Can any of you know how to stop emails about members being promoted. "
Go to your Account page (NOT the profile!),
Look at the right hand column 'Specific Notifications' and scroll down to 'Topics Following'.
Scroll down (list might be long depending on how many Threads etc you have posted to🤔),
Carry on scrolling 🙄 until you find [Forum] Recent Promotions and switch it off by clicking on the blue switch box to the right.
It will then disappear from the list, and hopefully from your Email box.
Carry on scrolling down until you find [Forum] Promotion and switch that off as well.
BE AWARE though, if you later post anything in either of those threads the topics(s) will automatically reappear in your Topics Following list: Even if you have NOT clicked the 'Follow Topic' box at the top of the thread☹️ That plagues me as well, my list is about a half mile long, and most of the threads are long since dead! I'll discuss this with Stephen (Fireboat).
While scrolling the list you may well also find topic threads that are dead or no longer of interest to you.
Just switch those OFF as well.
Hope this helps reduce the flood🤞
Cheers, Doug 😎
PS Your topic 'Email notifications' has now appeared in my list!!🤔
