    B Email Notifications Poll

    Several of our modifications give us the option for you all to get email notifications. You can be notified when someone:

    1) Quotes your post
    2) Likes or Thanks you for a post
    3) Mentions you or Tags you
    4) Sends you a Private Message

    You can, of course, turn off email notifications under your personal 'Settings' menu. But I'm wondering what your all's feelings are about email notifications? Especially when you will also see notifications on the top bar next to your name, get PMs in some cases about notifications, and if you use 'Tapatalk' may also get push notifications when a member does any of the above actions. We are trying to balance keeping you up to date and encouraging participation and not *spamming* our own beloved members

    So the question is, do you prefer to receive email notifications, or would you prefer we turn those off? We are all about you all - so tell us what you'd like us to do.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    I like the notifications... when work is crazy or when I'm hibernating because I'm not liking life..those notifications bring me back and I visit here for a while.. call it therapy, but it works.

    I voted for only private message notification. Of course, right now I'm not getting any email because of an apparent server issue. But that's another story.

    I'd really like to get a little more feedback on this if folks wouldn't mind participating.

    For the time being, I have turned off default emails for everything but Private Message receipt. If you WANT to be notified by email when someone likes or thanks you for a post or when someone quotes you or tags you, you can do that under 'Settings' (look for the 'DB Tech - Post Thanks' settings section, or the 'User Tagging' settings section.
