Notify of New Comments

It was pointed out to me that once people register as a member the 'notify of new comments' button suddenly becomes selected by default whenever they post a comment. That's a little annoying. I've managed to change this for people who register in the future, so that it won't be selected by default. But for existing members, if you don't want that option selected by default, you're going to need to change it yourself in your individual member preferences (you may not have realized there even were individual member preferences). Here's what you do:

  • Click login on the menu above.

  • Then click on the 'My Account' link at the top-right of the login screen

  • Next click 'email settings'

  • Finally, unclick the 'enable email notification by default' button

And that'll do it.
