Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): NEW - the unsubscribe button - have you tried it yet?

NEW - the unsubscribe button - have you tried it yet?

stop sign

I just noticed the new option at the end of the new comment alerts.  When did that start showing up? 

--- Unsubscribe from notifications for this post

This is useful for those times when you get swamped with way too many emails, which often happens when you comment on a great post by some of the blogging overachievers here like.....

I haven't yet tried it, but I will because I'm the curious type.  I think this is a great new feature

UPDATE - I don't know about you all, but it seems to take 3 tries before it works. 

Thanks again ActiveRain, you guys rock!  Thanks to Imagechef.com for the cute picture.

Thanks for sharing.  I haven't noticed the unsubscribe button.  Guess I have been to busy bloging and commenting.  Happy Holidays!

It has been there for awhile. It is there if you have suscribed to a persons post and want to unsubscribe.  Hope this helps!  8-)

There has always been a Subscribe / Unsubscribe button just over the posters picture for the blog - at least it's been there as long as I've been a member.  I have yet to see the Unsubscribe from notifications.  Is this so you can stop getting notified everytime someone else comments after you've checked the "Notify me of new comments:: box?

 I saw it just the other day...maybe it was there before, but I remember we had to go back into the post and uncheck the notify me box.....this is so much easier, and saves time too :) :)  Thanks....

It works, but you have to be logged in if it's members only.

this is a good thing - as Martha says

I'm not seeing where it is. I must be missing it. If I get tired of the comments, I always go back in and update my comment to uncheck the box. Just clicking a link would be a lot faster. Ok - I'm going to save this comment and see if I see it.

Angie - you'd be better off testing it with a more active thread.  lol 

I don't expect a lot of action over here.  I'm still testing it out myself, and I like it.

- you just gave me the email to test it out in. I had never noticed that link before either. Thanks for the tip. I will definitely use that.
Posted by Angie Vandenbergh, A Crye-Leike Blogger (Crye-Leike, Realtors) almost 11 years ago
Angie - let's try another test.... would you unscubscribe from this one... and I will see what happens on this end.  Thanks!

On second thought, it appears to not be working that well.  I have "unsubscribed" from one post 3 times now and they still come....?

Anyone else have some input?

I've just set up a separate folder in my e-mail account that captures all my Activerain New Comment e-mails. I get all the updates I want, but avoid the full inbox problem that you describe. It is pretty easy to set up depending on your e-mail service, but most have this feature and can be done in less than 5 minutes.

Todd,  that might be a better idea!  Thanks.  It seems that the unsubscribe button is not that effective.

you can say that agin, Georgina.  I've clicked on the "Unsubscribe from notifications for this post " for this post several times and am still getting updates!
Posted by Nancy Brenner, Roswell Georgia Real Estate Agent (Referral Associates of Georgia, Inc.) over 10 years ago
Nancy - lol - I think the "button" needs some work - I find I have to click it more than once on some occasions.  At least there's not 100 comments here, so it's not too painful.  haha
Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) over 10 years ago
HAHA - I've clicked on the "--- Unsubscribe from notifications for this post " for this post and now several others more than a couple of times.   I'm still getting updates!!!!!  Go figure.  Maybe we need to address this to the powers that be????  OK - i'm foing to flag this post to get their attention.

Crap.  That last comment was from me.  I forgot to log in.  OY!  And I can't even go back and fix my typos!!!!
Posted by Nancy Brenner, Roswell Georgia Real Estate Agent (Referral Associates of Georgia, Inc.) over 10 years ago

Nancy, if you have any pull with the gods, please let them know.  I thought I'd give it a few more days and see what happens.  It seems to work some of the time.
