    The forum is spamming me!

    For whatever reason, I'm getting over 100 notifications each morning for the forum's I'm subscribed to, all of which snnounce the same updates. I've tried unsubscribing, signing out, chsnging settings to no notifications, and still they keep piling in. Now, I love you folk and the post's, but I'm overwhelmed. Any hints?

    My other question Steve, is do you also use tapatalk to interface with the forums you belong to?

    Thanks for replies gents. I have gone into settings and changed the default to no notifications /subscriptions, don't use tapatalk. Also tried ubsubscribibg to thread, but doesn't seem to work. This is particularly curious, because a few months ago I was getting no notifications at all, even though I we as subscibed. Then I started getting normal noticed, then it went to this notification flame.
