Since registering, less than 2 hours ago, I have received 17 emails! This is quite an onslaught which I did not enjoy seeing.
I assume there is a feature to turn off email notifications, but perhaps it might be a good idea is this is presented during registration to prevent the flood of emails which may not be wanted? It's overwhelming and could put people off.
I'm terribly sorry for the onslaught of emails. As more and more badges are added, the number of emails can add up quickly. I am working to address this now.
Please keep in mind that this should only occur shortly after signing up. As you unlock new badges, or receive new private messages, you should continue to receive emails from us as long as your email settings are setup to receive them.
That's a fantastic idea, and definitely something we can do. Perhaps this could be a setting for each user with the option to toggle between Instant Email Notification (current method) or Daily/Weekly/Monthly Email Notifications (per your suggestion).
Please let old threads die and do not reply to them unless you feel you have something new and valuable to contribute that absolutely must be added to make the discussion complete.
Otherwise, please post a new thread in this forum instead.
