    For the past several month I have been receiving "Uploaded Images" as alerts , does anyone know what I need to turn off in my preference so I don't see these anymore?

    @BRICKBURN I get alerted when anyone posts any photo - anyone. Been going on for more than a year.

    Yep, CAustin, Red Leg, Art Lambart II, using "unwatch" as explained by Jerome works. I did find out by trial and error last year. This is how I have been dealing with it, and it works, but it can be tediously repetitive...

    The problem comes from the following: every time you insert a pick in a post, the staff will add the pic to your media folder (most times with a relevant title, and sometimes not ;-) and this will automatically reset your preference to "watch".

    So, if I insert a rifle pic here for example, within typically 24 hours, staff will add it to my media in the "Weapon and ammunition" category and from then on I will automatically be notified anytime anyone adds a pic in this category. Annoying! I will then go and "unwatch" the category. Notifications will stop, until 3 days from now, for example, I insert a different rifle pic in a different post and notifications will start all over again...

    Since we are talking admin continuous improvements here, I would have two additional comments:
    1. - The 30 minutes window to edit a post seems adapted to the purpose of the flowing discussion. However, I often notice upon re-reading a post a sneaky typo or two that I would like but cannot correct. How could we allow this?
    2. - Say you forgot that you can link a pic from your media, and you attached the same pic to 6 different posts over 6 months. The staff will add the pic 6 times to your media. Could we get a process to remove duplicate pic from the media?
    Thanks

    Thanks Guys,

    It looks like that fix worked, I no longer have watched categories.

    Aha! That explains it. And fixed it.

    Yes, I have a couple of, shall we say, unremarkable picture titles as well.

    I have had the same problem over the years and all it seams to take is to post one photo in a thread to reset all of the categories.

    Isn't there a way to set the forum default to "unwatched" instead of watched? Then if a member wants to he can "watch" a thread or photos as he chooses.
