I am receiving 25-50 (or more) emails per day that say "You received a reply" or "Your post has been moved" emails from the forum.  From looking into it, these aren't posts I have made or even commented on.  Its been going on for a couple of weeks and is getting really annoying.  I don't want to opt out of the community as there are interesting & valuable discussions here, but the volume is ridiculous.

This is happening to me, but not that many. The volume must correlate to the number of communities you follow.

Just to be clear, I mean it is happening to every email I receive from the Google Partners Advertiser Community, I just don't receive as many. I do like to skim through them by subject, though.

Hi Kyle & Geromy,

 

Sometimes when the community's software is updated, it will send these batches out for categories you are subscribed to and/or previous posts. It should settle down and resume normal operations soon. You can go to a community Google Partners) and then go to a category (Water Cooler) and click on the gear in the upper left hand corner and click unsubscribe. There are some other settings in the user profile section (My Settings), too, that may need to be adjusted.     

 

All the Best,

 

James

I have been getting them from early in the month...25 - 50 or more per day.  It is at 36 so far today.  Unfortunately, I don't want to opt out of getting notifications to topics I have either posted or been participating in...I just don't want emails on posts on everything that is being discussed.

Hi Kyle,

 

I do understand. 

 

Are you subscribed to those forum categories?

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

To my knowledge I am only subscribed to the particular posts I have participated in with the various categories...although when looking under Subscriptions, what I am actually subscribed to...just the Topic or the entire category...is as clear as mud.

This happened before, and they undid the change. Then someone started fiddling with things again on March 1. https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Water-Cooler/Email-Notification-Issues/m-p/1015440#M2084

That is correct, Geromy. There are lots of system upgrades and refreshes taking place for 2017. 

 

Please give it a little more time and let us know any changes.

 

Thanks, 

 

James
