Notification sent out for system message even though disabled in admin settings

(Tobias Eigen) #1

Continuing the discussion from Can't mute system messages:

I just had an interesting experience on my discourse - see screenshots. I have a staff group that includes more than 100 people, and they were all notified yesterday about a two year old post that is very outdated. It was a bit awkward because it was about hiring for a position that is already filled! :scream_cat:

The notification is from the system user and was sent at precisely the time when discourse downloaded a remote image for the post to local, but that shouldn’t have happened because we have it set to disable edit notifications by the system user. I also am not fully understanding why it even did this two years after the topic was posted in the first place.

Does anyone have any ideas what might have occurred here? Is it a bug? Any way to prevent it from happening again?
