E-mail Notifications keep turning themselves on
« on: October 08, 2012, 08:01:33 PM »
I don't know if someone is just dicking with me or if there's a glitch in the forum software but it's been happening off and on for like a year now.

Randomly I'll just start getting emails telling me there's a reply to a thread, so I'll go in and turn notifications off. Eventually they turn back on.

This time they turned back on right after I went in and turned them off. It's starting to really piss me off now because I missed a very important email in the middle of all of the A-R notifications.

Anyone else having this issue or should I just change my e-mail to my spam account?

It might be your theme, mine did that a few times before I changed my theme to Sub-Soviet way back when...I dunno though.

Same here. Was messing around trying out different themes no problems since switching to sub-soviet though.
Just ignore them like I did.

i've actually had that happen a couple of times on the base theme... SubSoviet is problem free though.

, i didn't say anything because i thought i was doing it to myself. It only happened to me once or twice but my other board is the same format and it would happen all the time there. Might just be a hiccup. I know for a fact i did it once by accident when i was clicking too much and my browser froze. Other members have pmd me too. Let me know if it happens again, may be a theme issue.

I use the default theme. And like i said it only seems to happen randomly, that's why i thought for a minute that someone was just fucking with me.

Never heard of it. Could try a different theme but if the default is doing it, I don't think a different theme is the cure. I'm not even sure how that could ever happen.

Do the default settings have them turned on?

I'll double check but I don't think that has anything to do with the theme. I believe it's 100% user settings.

I think by default a couple of them are on, I can't remember though.

Even so, it happens at random times, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. It did it to me twice in a row and now it hasn't done it since the last time I turned it off.

Does it happen when you log out/in?  I have my login set to Forever but sometimes when I have to log in from a new device or something weird shit like sigs and avis being turned off happens.

Nick, PM me when it happens again with time, what theme you're using, what browser you have, etc.
