Whenever I subscribe to a thread, I currently receive an email alert every single time a person posts there.
With all the recent changes to this site, will the repetitiveness of these notifications change also?

whether you want to be notifed by email,by notifications,by both, or not at all can be changed in your notifications settings in your profile settings.

But I can't chage the frequency of notifications (i.e., email alerts to thread postings that occur after yours).
This is what I'm asking about.

what is the frequency now and what do you want it to be? i followed a topic the last couple of weeks and it notified me here on the forum each time someone posted in the topic.

Every single time someone posts a response in a thread I'm watching, I get an email.
If the thread is really popular, I might end up with a page or two of emails that are nothing but single responses to the same post.
Granted, I could just weed through the repeater emails until I end up with the oldest one, but it would be nice if I didn't have to do that.
WHAT I WOULD LIKE is to have is, regardless of how many responses come after your newest response, you only get the one email notifiying you (me) that there are new reponses in that thread.
It just makes the whole process less tedious.

...and so I've been told by the webmaster in the past, and thus my original question in this thread.

Yes at this point that can't be done, but who know in the future, Ben
