I used to get Notifications of Updates to this Site on a Weekly basis; for some reason in the last two weeks I get several Update Notices daily.

I have checked the Notifications frequency in my Profile and nothing changed.

Why is the Site sending out Update Notices for every posting?

How do I revert back to Weekly Notice Updates?

I enjoy Model Boats, however I get far toooooooooooo much e-Mail traffic .

Any insights, are appreciated.

Hi Tug Hercules,

Please check out your notification settings. If you're using the website hover over your username in the top left, then click Notifications. If you're using the app, the same thing can be done by clicking Settings in the top right, then going to Notifications.

This will then list all the instances in which the website will post out an email to you, you can then uncheck anything you're not interested in being notified about.

Looking at your notification history I can see many are "New Update by" emails. These are pushed out when there are updates to topics you've recently viewed. If it's too much, I recommend unticking the "recently viewed" checkbox.

That is what is strange; I have done that and the settings are set to "Weekly" updates on posts; yet I get numerous every day.

Not sure what has changed??

You haven't done that. You have weekly set, as well as another 6 options. This is a screenshot of your current notification settings. As an admin, I can see this!

The one that is ticked saying "recently viewed topics" is the one causing you to receive emails. What has changed (for you only), is that you have recently viewed lots of topics, therefore the website is letting you know there have been updates on a lot of things.

Recently viewed topics you need to uncheck if it's causing a problem 😊

I am having a similar problem, I have unchecked the the recently viewed topics box and updated my preferences but when I next check my notifications preferences the tick is back again, it seems that the updated preferences are not sticking.
Anyone else noticing this ?

I haven't tried to stop these messages yet but I have noticed that if I try and correct any post that I have made it accepts the editing but after saving the edit disappears.
