stop spamming email notifications as standard policy

Recommended Posts

I just made an account. By default, I'm following every forum there is, and I get an email for ANYTHING happening on the forum. 
I would like to point out that this is stupid, obnoxious and in violation of the EU GPDR law. I never consented to any of these message notifications, and it's pretty damn difficult to figure out the notifications. I want a notification for the threads I participate in, so that means I need to unfollow every subforum one by one.

I will review the initial email notifications.

At the bottom of each email you have a link to set you subscription preferences. 

Additionally, you can visit your notification settings any time, including removing all forum email notifications with one click by visiting your notification preferences https://www.teamfdm.com/notifications/options/

Thank you for the feedback!

You can actually change that. by setting your notifications, not to receive any.
