Email notifications of help desk threads

Greetings -

Much as I love you all, the email notifications every time there is a response on the help desk threads in which I have commented has just become overwhelming. I'm spending a significant part of my day deleting! I will come here as I have chance and check to see how the help desk threads are doing. Can I please get unsubscribed to email notifications of help desk threads?

I do want emails regarding DKos selected posts of the day and that sort of thing, if possible. I have turned off email notification of comment updates, I can't handle all those either! But once or twice a day for DKos posts and petitions is fine. If I can't split the difference like this, though, then I would say please turn off all emails from you. I'm here daily and can check everything without the email notifications.

    You need to go into each of the threads you've commented in and check the status below the X Persons Watching box. Click to change the option from Unsubscribe to Updates to Subscribe to Updates.

    And, get used to doing the same thing every time you open a thread, or comment in one. Sometimes you may have to refresh the page after you comment to see what your current status is, because it's not always immediately correct once you've added a comment to a thread.
