STOP inundating my email with comments!!!!

  1. I have just cleared nearly three dozen comments from WordPress users regarding the new stats page. I don't know about the rest of you, but I have more to do than read all of this and keep deleting. They are coming fast and furiously, one after another. Please stop this craziness.

    As to the new stats page: Sometimes new is not necessarily better. I wish WP would leave well enough alone this time.

    The blog I need help with is

    You can unsubscribe to any topic here, using the link on the right hand side of the page.

  3. This link from titabuds was a big help in fixing the problem. Thank you TB!

    and until the default is re-organised don't forget to uncheck the reply to comment email box!

  4. Given that it appears, at least to me, that it would be very easy to change the default back to unchecked, I think people should consider the possibility that "checked" is now the default of the future. We'll have to wait and see how it all shakes out, but...

  5. I went here > Settings > Discussion
    and I disabled this
    Follow Comments __ Show a 'follow comments'' option in the comment form

  6. @timethief that was one of the first things I checked but if others don't do it to theirs the emails keep coming every time a comment is made!

    The link I included earlier stemmed the tide into my inbox - I now how hugely popular some of the blogs I follow are!

    Also, as someone noted earlier somewhere else, the followup box down below has the luxury of being unchecked!

  7. The other problem is, the change at settings > discussion has to be made by the blog OWNER, and if they don't, a lot of visitors are going to get caught by this. This really should NOT be an opt out.

    Granted, but I don't believe the constant bumping of these threads will result in a reversion to the prior default setting. If TPTB wished to consult with their users, prior to making site-wide changes I think they would set up a process for that. So it seems TPTB don't percieve a need or a use for community consultation. After all is pretty much occupying a monoplogy within its niche. The other free hosts do not offer what's offered here. Unless or until there is at least one other free host that rivals what is provided by I don't expect to see a shift towards consulting with users in advance of site-wide chnages happening.

    Wow, that's an obnoxious reply.

    WP is not a "monoplogy" - monopoly, I believe you mean. There's Blogger, LiveJournal, Tumblr and a number of other free blogging hosts out there.

    Yes, other free hosts offer similar or same services, and in some cases, more than WP. For example, one of my blogs is hosted by Blogger, and Blogger users have the ability to customize and/or create their own templates, whereas free WP bloggers cannot.

    Just because it's free means our opinions are worthless? I don't think anyone is calling for a democracy, by any means, but WP bloggers, as its primary users, are probably the best source to get a baseline for whether a new feature is or isn't working.

    Clearly, the comment change and Topics change are not.

    It sounds like you're getting annoyed by the comments here. I'm trying to give you the benefit of doubt; maybe you should take a step back and let some other volunteer moderate the forums for awhile.

  10. @coffeezombiephotog
    I suggest that if you don't like what I have posted you could register accounts do an anayalsis of all the other free hosts and compare features, functions. terms of service and policies. I have done that and none of the other free hosts rival what provides so that's why I have my blogs here.

    P.S. You aren't in a position to tell anyone here which threads to post into. You are not in position to control what's posted into threads. Only Staff can do that. So are far as telling me to take a step back do note that when anyone gets personal I take a step forward.

  11. Blogger, LJ, Bumblr and the "number of other free blogging hosts" are NOT competition for wordpress.COM.

    As far as bumping threads, I'll bump this one right here and now. When makes changes that hurt, they need to know about it. It doesn't mean they care (God knows they show little evidence of caring), but I fully support people giving their opinions.

    THIS was a STUPID change.

  12. @thesacredpath
    Of course, I agree this is stupid change. Initially I was livid but now I'm dry ice.

    P.S. Will you take a look at this thread please? (CSS question)

  13. accessiblenorth

    @thesacredpath Agreed, oh yes, agreed, stupid change
    @timethief And another Amen. I believe in stepping forward too - and I am going to adopt dry ice as my very own personal approach. OK, I aspire to the adoption. We'll see how it goes.

    And to both of you, thanks - it helps a lot to have you around in trying times.
