Oh please fix this quickly - subscribe button

by /bio/garryrf »

RC. I didn't subscribe to this thread and I didn't receive an Email that you'd stopped by.

I've just subscribed now.

Maybe its changed to non automated !

I post less and it seems those are on less popular threads, so I get less email about it and it isn't a problem for me.  

RC, don't go crazy.  We need you to keep your marbles.  You do a lot of good for a lot of travelers.

Not sure what the problem is here. The checkbox for Subscribe to this Discussion is right next to the SUBMIT button - how can you forget to uncheck it while submitting a post? The fact that it defaults to being checked shouldn't matter, it's so quick and easy to uncheck it every time.

But if you're having trouble beyond that simple remedy, why not getting a secondary email address in some name other than the one you already have, and having Frommers registering that one - then all you'll get there will be the Community emails from Frommers (until some bots find the account and you get SPAM that you'll know to be SPAM if you never gave that new email address to anyone except Frommers). And your primary email address will not get any Frommers email. Problem solved, no?

Wally, then I won't get Frommer's e-mail I do want.

Obviously, of course I should remember to uncheck the stupid box.  I'm not dumb.  But I keep forgetting.  Sometimes I remember in time to unsubscribe before I get any e-mail about it.  But if I don't, I'm being punished with a gazillion e-mails.

My point is, if it's driving me crazy and I know I'm supposed to unsubscribe, who else is it driving crazy who isn't posting on this thread and maybe is deciding not to post on others because they don't want the mail?

The last time I posted on this thread, I forgot to unsubscribe.  It's that bad.

Maybe they could put a global unsubscribe button in your profile?

Are you requesting a reversal of the default - are you pushing for the "Subscribe to this Discussion" to be UNCHECKED unless the visitor chooses to check it on a case-by-case basis?

Who knows, if you email Pauline (at support@frommermedia.com) she might consider it?  

About your statement "it's driving me crazy" - sorry, you lack credibility in that department since your name says that "crazy" is already your default status quo...

What I think would be perfect would be:

 

The OP is automatically subscribed.  All responders must check the box to subscribe, NOT be automatically subscribed.

Well, there is that.  But I might be driven even crazier, crazy enough that my keepers might not let me come here any more, and whatever would you all do without me? wink

Question for Road Crazy: If Pauline's crew succeeds, will you change your name to "Road"?

Probably not, but I'll consider changing mine to Patsy Cline....

Road by itself is just too dull.

Road Hazy?

Road Sane?

Road Rage?

Road Ready?

Road Toad?

Road Rumble?

Road Ramble?

Rowed Your Boat?

Rode Lazy?

Hmmm.  None of these have quite the same ring, though...

PHeymont, I like the idea of you being a patsy.  cheeky
