    from a thread to which i've previously posted?

    I'm the creator/early poster in almost all current threads.
    Every single time anyone comments anywhere, I get a bloody notification.

    I don't want to stop getting ALL notifications, I want to be able to to go to a random thread and say "don't show me notifications about this thread anymore, whether it's a reply or a quote or whatever"...

    I figure, for the most part, we should have more flexibility to specify notifications, subscriptions, alerts, whatever.

    @SadikB this is definitely something we can improve. I have similar issues since I post in a LOT of threads. I did go to my profile page and update the settings, but any user-friendly way to improve this would be great!

    Not bad, that helps.

    It'd be nice to have the option to watch or not when you reply (and be able to set the default for that option). That way, you can avoid watching 9000 threads in the first place.

    Weird thing...
    http://forums.nexopia.com/threads/how-do-you-delete-your-account.1139

    I previously had a post here, I deleted it.
    The watch button reads "watch", presumably because I'm not currently watching it...
    yet, I still get notifications...

    Almost like the routines that keep track of when to spit out notifications are overactive...

    Or perhaps I did this to myself by deleting the post ... though, it is strange that the watch button reads "watch" not "unwatch".

    It seems that it's now working... The watch/unwatch button is right, and each thread even shows a little "eye" icon beside watched threads
    Either I'm an idiot, or @SadikB just rolled out a few great tweaks.

    I still don't like the confirmation popups everywhere, but this is a huge improvement!

    For some terrible reason, when you said wizard, this bash.org quote immediately came to mind:
