I’m really blocked for using my discourse. I suspect a bug in the user preferences, when the user joins a group, that it gives him access to a new category and that the default setting should be “Follow”. I did a test which confirms it, with a new email address:
The user registers and then joins a group. The categories followed by this group are therefore added to the user’s preferences (/u/…/preferences/categories "). He can see the new category, but the notification level is at the maximum (here are the user settings):
While it should be a simple follow up (here are the group settings):
Thus, the forum overloads members of this group, who complain about it.
Do you have any idea what is wrong?
Is there a way to find a detailed explanation of how these notifications work somewhere? Because I lack transparency, I cannot use them correctly.
Thanks a lot,
