Thanks for the 200 email notifications

Notifications have been hit-or-miss lately.  I haven't got any in about two weeks.  Are you getting old ones you've read already?  Dave should see this thread and inform us mods what's up and we'll inform everyone else (or he'll just inform everyone, he does things like that).

But, from someone who can't do anything about it, sorry for the deluge.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I'm getting one for every thread ever started in the announcements section.

A small selection (there's 212 in total, so far):

You would be getting these notifications because you are set to follow the announcements forum when there are new posts ... and for some reason, every single announcement in there has gone and cloned itself thereby creating a "new" message.  Chances are that the emails have already been queued for sending but will see if there is a kill switch somewhere.

The experts are all in bed at the moment, but given that this did not seem to happen to any of the early announcements or to other forum areas I suspect it was the "Mr G" announcement robot going nuts on reposting for some reason.  It has been a little cantankerous of late. @Ben CCleaner is, amongst other things, our resident robot wrangler and he will check to make sure that it hasn't become self-aware and planning to go Skynet on all of us.

Well it does have a habit of sending 2 email notifications for any new post there, but 200 (or 212 to be precise) is a little OTT 😃

Just an assumption but perhaps you're getting two because someone later edits the annoucement with the checksums/hashes (MD5, etc.,) of the downloads.

Months ago I got so tired of seeing notifications in my email that I set up a spam filter for them so they go directly into the spam folder and don't consume any of my allocated lowly 2 or 3 MB amount on my free email since trying to configure my settings on the forum are completely ignored and always send them. But as of late I haven't been getting hardly any.

You should be able to stop it by turning off your 'follow' for the Announcements sub-forum:

Go to the Announcements forum and click on the 'Follow' box.

Then either - 'Do not send me any notifications' - or  'change how the notification' is sent and turn off the email option.

Exactly this.

We did have a thing with double 'digest' emails recently but that was fixed and hasn't reappeared.

Let me check my email inbox though.

You can always go to your profile and turn off all email notifications.

I have done now (160 notifications in), but not ideal as I subscribe there for notifications of Piriform updates and I can't be the only one subscribed there getting an email fired at them for every post ever made, for a second time (And on a side note, surely risks email servers deciding piriform emails are spam due to volume being fired out)

Not sure but I think it's probably an Invision issue rather than Piriform.

The forum software is acting buggy, I reported it.

Look at the main page https://community.ccleaner.com/ the announcements is showing really old topics as "new" again like CCleaner v4.05 from 2013. Perhaps just spam block them in your email (I did long ago) to solve it once and for all.
