The problem I'm experiencing is a deluge of messages announcing there's been either a reply or vote on a contest thread to which I've posted. They arrive eight at a time (see attached image) for the same reply or vote. Yesterday I received forty-plus such messages; and today, so far, 20-plus have arrived--eight identical ones at a time.

I cannot locate a setting in my profile which enables me to disable these messages, nor do the messages contain an "unsubscribe" link. How can I stop this tsunami of notifications? Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

haha just as I wrote the above long and boring post I got a response back from them about it. So I deleted it and now im writing thisSmile

The way to turn it off is to "unfollow"
Go to
http://www.fetfan.com/contest/1/1000-fetfan-social-guru/

and to the left where you would of Joined the contest right above the submit an entry you should see "unfollow"

Sometimes they move faster than I can keep up with lol Steph

When I go to the Social Guru contest page, and click "Announcement" (because I've not figured out how to vote and it's not immediately obvious to me), I get a truncated explanation with a link to "View More". Clicking that takes me to this url: http://www.fetfan.com/core/redirect/url_eNortjK0UlJWsgZcMAjuAbs,/

with the following message:

"You are about to leave our site to vist: #"

Clicking the # (or the 'Click here to continue link') simply lands me in an endless loop at the following url:

http://www.fetfan.com/core/redirect/url_eNortjK0UlJWsgZcMAjuAbs,/#

...which is exactly the same page.



I'm using Chrome Version 27.0.1453.116 m, and can list installed extensions if that seems to be where the issue originates.

Thank you, Steph, for responding to my plight! I went to that page you linked, only to discover the relevant radio button already showed "Follow"--which means, one would think, I wasn't following the contest in the first place. Hmm. Just to make sure the Electron-in-Chief got the message I clicked on "Follow" (which then dutifully changed to "Unfollow") then clicked on "Unfollow" (which changed to "Follow").

So, hopefully, something which didn't take hold before will kick in now and the tidal wave of messages (eight copies of each message) will retreat back into the Cyber Sea. I received nearly 100 messages from that contest's page this morning! Interestingly, the messages which were not from the contest page were not duplicated.

ok well that sounds like a bug to me.


that is how things are MEANT to notify lol

basically only the contest creator should be getting spammed anytime something happens if everything works as intended.

FETFAN, I take it you're either working on this problem or have fixed it. Regardless, thanks for your help!

I guess it hasn't been fixed, since I received another eight-copies-at-once notification from the contest thread this morning. Alas! Yesterday, since the "Unfollow" method hadn't worked, I clicked on the radio button labeled "Leave the contest" or words to that effect. Well, that hasn't stopped the eight-copies phenomenon either. It's only from the contest thread that I'm getting the eight-copies spamming: Notifications from other threads, such as this one, arrive in the traditional form of a single message.

Ok thanks we thought we had it fixed but I guess not you def shouldnt be getting messages like that.

So the messages are coming in like you own the contest right?
so it is saying something like blah blah voted on your entry?

Could you please Try to go into privacy and turn off email notifications please.

We would like to know if the mod is overriding the default notifications process, Mark

Thanks for your attention to this, Mark. I've just now turned off all the electronic-mail notifications in Privacy. Also, here's the entirety of an eight-copies-at-once message:
