    I feel for you guys. The only thing I get emails about is threads I am following, not upload alerts. And those I am tired of, I unsubscribe to.

    As a FYI about those getting alerts here is what I have done. I no longer get any alerts.

    Under My Account and then the Settings

    Preferences, I only have Use Rich Text Editor box checked. It is the forth box.

    Alerts, I have zero boxes checked

    Mine is sorted now Philip. Jerome tweaked something and I only get alerts if someone has quoted my post or posted on a thread I have started. Of course there are the conversation alerts that come in as well.

    I've been getting Alerts that tell me about new images uploaded for the past year. (I didn't enroll for this) I've gone into the settings a half dozen times jiggling the dials trying to get it to stop to no avail. I don't have a setting enabling this, but I'm still getting this noise.

    Any advice how to make this go away? Why would anyone want this feature anyway, its not useful apart from the forum posts that have the content that supports the images?

    Thanks for the tech help!

    Only 3 Alert Preferences checked in my account. "Replies to a post of mine", "Mentions me by name", and one other I can't recall. None have to do with images.

    I like to get Alerts here on the site, when people post in threads that I have posted in etc..
    Sometimes I also get email notifications for those posts. I don't need or want those.
    Looking at my settings, I don't think I should be getting the emails:

    prefs.jpg

    and
    alerts.jpg

    This does not happen often. It happened today, when the next person replied to https://www.africahunting.com/threads/take-down-rifles.39557/page-2

    Hello,

    I keep receiving alerts every time a user uploads an image, even on forums that I never visit. The alerts read something like "Such-and-such uploaded an image called [...] to the watched category [...]."

    I am not watching any forums (I checked my settings in "watched forums") or any threads. I get hundreds of these alerts and I don't know how to turn them off--the "Alert preferences" don't seem to help.

    How can I get rid of this problem?
