How do I stop getting email notifications from topics that I've posted on?

I posted a playlist in the Playlist Exchange topic, and now any time someone else posts there, I get an email notification about it. I am not subscribed to the topic as evidenced by clicking the three dots or the "Topic Options" buttons on the thread, so I don't know why I get these emails.

Hey @jrham 

 

When you post a new thread there is a check box next to the message editor that enables notifications for new replies.

 

Try going here and checking to see what you have set for the "Automatically subscribe me to all topics or reviews I participate in" option. I personally have this unchecked. If you still want to get notifications you can manually check the box next to the message editor. This setting automatically checks that each time.

You can also see what threads you are currently subscribed to here and remove them if you no longer want to get emails:

Also, when you post a thread there are 2 menus. One is the "Topic Options" menu and there is also another menu on your post that you can access by clicking on the "..." button. It is possible that you have subscribed to your post in the thread, but not the actual thread. It's a little confusing but being subscribed to the post in the thread means you get a notification when someone hits reply on that post in the thread.

 

Let me know how it goes
