Quotes / subscriptions?

With the changeover, the default for subscriptions changed *and* I got subscribed to every thread I ever posted in.
I fixed both of those (took a while to see I didn't want 'no email'), but now I'm getting notified every time someone quotes me. How do I stop that??
I have zero subscriptions, so the quote notifications doesn't appear to be tied to that.

I noticed the same thing. I was going to try to stop that as well, but I think it's actually a good addition.

If someone quotes you from an old thread, they may be hoping for a response from you, or clarification of some info. With the old system, unless you were subscribed to a thread, you would never know if someone was waiting for a response, unless they PM'd you.

Hey there,

Has Doug's suggestion helped you solve this issue?
Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

OK, maybe it's staring at me, but I don't see anything about Quote Notifications.

Messaging & Notification - seems like a likely spot, but I see emails, subscribing, PM system, and Visitor messages.
Thread Display Options - nope
Date & Time Options - nope
Miscellaneous Options - nope

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

No there is no option that I have been able to find. I am also no subscribed to a million threads even though my preference says no.

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

Thanks Brian. Doug's comment sure made me look several times.

Richard,
Any help?

On the subscriptions, I saw 'No emails' and thought that's what I wanted. But the pulldown gives other options including 'Do not subscribe'.
I was able to delete all my subscriptions - had to try several times, kept getting errors, but it eventually worked.

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

I'll see if Jeff saw this and has it on his list. I also noticed that the quotes are picking up quotes in non member areas - not good.

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

I'm getting the quote notifications also using the Classic format. Would like to disable that feature if possible ? I don't even see how to delete each notification...

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

I too switched to the Classic format, but still get notified when some quotes me.
How do I disable this feature? Write less quotable information??

fwiw - I am subscribed to zero threads so it's not tied to that feature.

Re: Quotes / subscriptions?

I got rid of the 'quote' alert by doing this:
Go to User CP.
On left hand menu, down near bottom click on 'Settings'.
Check the 'Quote Alerts' (described as 'Check this box if you want to hide the Quote alerts.')

I also checked the 'Mention Alerts' box too, fwiw.
Seems to have worked since doing that, i.e. no new forum messages.
