Is there a way to change settings so that I don't get an e-mail for whenever someone posts? I want to get no e-mails.
Usually there's a subscribe/unsubscribe button which can be clicked on -- and then one can choose what kind of e-mails to receive, but there's none with Dharma Overground.
Thanks for your help.

When you reply in a thread, just under the box where you enter the reply there is a check box with the text "subscribe me" make sure that box is unchecked.  If you are starting a new thread the "subscribe me" box is in the same area but below the "mark as a question" box.

Also at the top of each page there is a "My subscriptions" link, if  you click that it shows what you are subscribed to and you can unsubscribe.

In a row lower down than the "My subscriptions"  there is a "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" link for the current thread. If you are subscribed it will say "unsubscribe" and you click it to unsubscribe.


If there is a better way I hope someone will post it but that is all I know about it.

On pages that display a list of threads, in the right column there may be a drop down menu "Actions". One of the items in the menu is "subscribe' or "unsubscribe"

Help Chris Marti! I have the opposite problem. It looks like I am subscribed to every thread on Recent Changes and I get no email for any of them. The only thread I get email for is my own practice log. I don't knoow how I gt subscribed to all Recent Cnages - I don't remember myself doing that or if you can even do it? I want to get rid of this but I can not subscribe to anything other than catgories. I want to individually subscribe to topics like Niels web log and get email. Can you please help me out?

Click on the "My Subscriptions" link and you can manage all your subscriptions in one place.

Chris I did. It does not show a subscription or why I am subscribed to the entirety of Recent Changes and how to shut that off. It also shows me subscribed to Niel's log but I get no email sent when he posts.

Sam, I'm not capable of troubleshooting these kinds of problems - I don't have deep technical permissions for the DhO. You should contact Daniel Ingram, the site's owner, for help on this one.

Hi Chris. I saw what I must have did. At the bottom of the Recent Changes page is a link to Subscribe to all Recent Changes. Unfornately, there is no Unsubsubscribe, and as you note , that is in the province of Daniel Ingram.
