LMR Email Notifications (Don't call it SPAM if you're too lazy to do this...)
January 10, 2013
Like most of you, I've noticed that the eMail updates have started again. I've also noticed a few shouts accusing LMR of "spamming" them. That's a little unkind, but if you don't want to receive the email updates to every thread you contribute to, it's very easy to change the settings.
All you have to do is go to your user profile (just click on your name after entering something in the Shout Box or next to your picture on a project or forum post or whatever) and select the "Subscriptions" Tab. When that page comes up, you'll see an overview chart, and underneath that is what we're interested in: the settings box. Click on the word settings or the arrow next to it to open it. In that box you'll see all sorts of options, including what kinds of content you want to be notified of updates to, the frequency of those updates and my favorite, the digest mode (which is subject to frequency settings too.)
In this panel, you can make whatever changes to your update frequency and types you want, including turning them off all together.
Just take control of your membership rather than complaining about "spam." IMHO, LMR is a community for active thinkers, makers and hackers as opposed to passive helpless Facebook sheep.
