Not sure if the site has just had a hissy fit, but I have just received 256 notifications of an updated post, all of which I had to delete as they were taking up space on my mailbox.

Not sure if there is a better way to manage this, perhaps just one notification per thread per day? It just seems to add up to an excessive amount (unless it was a glitch!)

What does everyone think?

I think you will find a few posts scattered around mentioning the same thing Grace.

I had 70 on a post started at 2 am this morning which I had nothing to do with and I am sure I had fallen asleep by then anyway

hi Amazing

Me too. Dizzy has a thread about it on Chat and GR have answered her. They haven't stopped though and I cannot delete mine as more and more take their place.

Sorry I didn't realise as I didn't get a chance to look over the whole site beforehand, I'll delete this thread then..
