    Not sure how I've enabled it, but I am now receiving an alert whenever a new thread is started. How do I stop that? I've been in to alert preferences, but I don't see an option that covers this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you checked your watched threads?

    Nothing in there about receiving alerts for new threads. I'll keep searching.

    Are the alerts just from one sub forum? If so you must have clicked on 'watch thread', you can remove it in your profile.

    Click on your name and go into preferences/browsing preferences and make sure the first box isn't checked.

    I've stopped watching all threads now. But it's odd that I never used to get alerts about new threads, only when someone quoted me or posted in a watched thread. Can't understand how that happened. Possibly accidentally when taking my phone outof my pocket (or putting it back in), at a guess?

    I blame the cat lovers myself. Like folk whose eyebrows meet up, they're not to be trusted.
