I have set a few categories to tracked, none to watched and none to muted:
But I keep getting notifications for every new topic in any category.
It seems every time a new topic is posted in a category I don’t follow it’s set to watching:
I set it back to normal
but next time a new topic is posted it’s set back again.
I honestly have no clue about this, sorry. Are other people seeing this?
Maybe try and see if anyone has posted similar problems at https://meta.discourse.org/ ?
Something similar has been posted as a bug a year ago, but it doesn’t say if it was ever fixed:
I can’t reproduce the issue on any other Discourse forum I’m on though.
That topic says it’s fixed, over there.
Maybe check your watched tags?
I don’t watch any tags.
I already reset all my notification preferences and set them up again, but the issue remains.
I think that if I were you I would create a new bug topic in meta,
- Mentionning the meta topic you found (1. It could help. 2. It will create a link to your open topic in that otherwise closed topic.)
- Mentionning this community topic
- Mentionning the bug fixer
I hardly think it’s a bug if it only happens on this forum. Also nobody else even here said they could reproduce it.
