Not very normal from the looks of my inbox.

Definately remove the "Always notify me of replies" option in your profile information.

I'm sure you visit the forums every day anyways, and if the thread is really important to you, you can always check the box "Notify me when a reply is posted" while replying to other posts in a thread.

At least that's what I do if I feel it's that important. :D

I put always because otherwise I'd forget what thread's I'm watching.
What I usally do is turn on my email (out lookexprees) and click on all the notifications, replying occasionally. Once they are exhasted I go to the index and check out the new threads.

To each his own I suppose.

I don't usually have much trouble remembering what posts I've replied to, but the odd one does slip by every now and then. If it keeps you better organized, then all the power to ya. :D

I would just find it a little overwhelming myself, as the number of replies on this board to each topic can get pretty crazy at times.

My BABB bookmark's link is http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/search.php?search_author=kucharek so when I go there, I see what I posted recently and look if there is some action. Later, I use http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/search.php?search_id=newposts to see what else is going on.

It will only send you one reply per thread, you then just keep reading until your session is over- ie. you log out. then if someone else reply's agin it will send another out, only a link though not the actuall message.

I usally get about 10 a day from BABB

That's an interesting way of doing things. :)

Ahh, that I didn't know. There was one board that I posted on some time ago, where I specified it to email me on all new posts to topics that I had posted in.

I don't recall if it emailed me on every new post in the thread, but it did get to be a pain in the neck for me after a while. It wasn't even a very active board.

I thought that it was becoming bothersome to you, so that's why I offered my advice.

Na, its fine,
thanks for the advise
I just don't know why I keep the emails, I have this massive folder.... :-?
I think I will graph all my BABB emails, to see what topics I've been following, how active some are etc...

Most of mine are spam so I tend just to zap them.

But I always make sure first thatI don't want them.
