  • Question

  • All of a sudden today, whenever I reply, the forums are automatically setting an alert for every post.

    I'm having to manually go remove the alerts every time I try to answer a question.

  • Reed, have you tried going into My->Settings and unselect "Always Alert Me By Default When I Post"?

  • Bryant,

    That setting is not selected in my account (and never has been).

    This is new behavior as of this morning.

  • It also only seems to happen if my reply is the first reply in a thread.

  • It seems to be a sporadic issue.  It's not happening consistently for me, but it seems to happen off and on.  I'll post 20 times, and in the 20, there will be 3 in a row where it occurs, but the other 17 won't happen.

    Thanks for determining the facts.   This is something that I had suspected but always forgot to check myself.

    So, I tried to add this post (and more) from a preview but it got lost?  No sign of it in my Activities but it posted (without the Alert me... that I had to uncheck) as if it had.  If that is what is going to happen maybe I will want to stay with the forced alert!   I had voted up your post from the same preview so maybe that bug is now worse than it was too?   Also, this editor is still broken!

    Now I am reposting from the thread view and Alert me... is already unchecked.
