Administrator needs to put a stop to the electronic harassment of it's members! I am sick of these sophomoric tactics to get folks to return to this site! "subscribe" by default is just a terrible idea and someone needs to speak up! I am 51yrs old, have been on these types of forums for almost 20 years, and even own/run my own super busy fishing website for the last 10yrs, (so I know how things work). The admins on this site are abusing the software to harass it's members, (and it needs to stop!) I consider myself a "typical" user of these types of forums. I browse around, post comments, ask questions, answer questions, voice my opinion. Every once in a while, not often, but every once in a while, I start a thread, or post to a thread, that I am eagerly awaiting help, or opinions from others. Because of this, ALL SITES have a little button you can click named "subscribe". This nifty little option lets the registered user to be notified instantly, daily, weekly, anytime someone else posts a message in that thread. Pretty cool huh Unfortunately, whom ever is in charge on THIS site decided to go into the "admin panel" and set the default to "instant e-mail notification" for every user on this site. What a drag for us members that like to participate on this site. I can't even post "nice shot" on a picture thread, cause if I do, I will get constant notifications and e-mails on my phone and pc at all hours of the day and night, every time someone else clicks submit on that thread. I do NOT wanna be harassed every time I post a comment on THIS website. It is a major hassle having to clear my notifications and delete the sent e-mails from both my phone and pc, (just because I posted "I like the "black one"). Why force a user to "uncheck" instant notification 19 out of 20 times, (when they only need to remember to click the subscribe 1 out of 20). I am sure that the admin who set this as "default", wrongly thought that it would encourage participation, (when in fact it discourages it). Please, please, please.......... spend 1 whole minute, log into the admin panel, then set the default to "do not subscribe". Let us posters decide for ourselves whether or not we want to be subscribed to EVERY thread, not force us to, (just look at the lack of traffic on android central, why ruin this site too). Just my 2 cents If anyone else here feels the same way, please post so.
