I posted a question the other day asking WHY it is adding all threads as being followed even when we uncheck the follow this question box. Others said it was not bothering them, but I have to go into Notifications after each answer und delete the ones it adds -- check under Notifications to see if it is doing the same to you. I can't make it stop.
Notifications works for me BUT when I come back to answer the question, there is no "opt-out" option now. As soon as I answer this question, my notifications section will update this thread as "as it happens." Could this be what is happening to everyone? If you go back and respond a second time to a thread - even when you opted out when you initially answered, is that when it's sending you emails?
I am not getting extra email that I have not opted to receive. I just went through my notifications and deleted cities/zips that I don't want notifications on anymore and I opted out of to receive notifications on updates regarding this thread from "as it happens" to "daily summary."
Clearly there has been some sort of recent glitch, as this just started happening, and I didn't make any changes with my notifications.............it's still happening to me.............if it doesn't stop, I will email Emily directly
Yes, it does seem as if Trulia has found more reasons to e-mail us. I also would appreciate it if the automation here were were a little less aggressive! In fact, I just went to my account settings page and found that the link now goes to the wrong page.
Your email alerts should by and large be back to normal as of today - our engineers have manually removed additional email subscriptions that were generated over the weekend. They are also at work bringing back the option to edit your alerts directly on the question page so you can easily unfollow a question.
If any of you do continue to receive any alerts that you didn't intend to sign up for, please let us know - and feel free to email me directly (emily at Trulia dot com).
Again, we really appreciate everyone being vocal about this so we could fix it quickly and we are grateful for your patience while we did so.
Thank you for making us aware of this. I'm sorry about the email overload and that we didn't post an answer yesterday. Our engineers are currently looking into this and we're hopeful that a fix will be in place soon.
I'll be sure to post updates about the issue as I receive them. Until then, thank you so much for your patience. We'll do our best to fix this asap.
