Simplify Category Notifications


I find that many non-techy users find the Category/Topic notification settings to be confusing.

I would like to propose a simpler naming and description:

  • Normal Notify and email me whenever I’m @mentioned
  • Headlines Notify and email me all new Topics
  • Everything Notify and email me all new Topics and all the Replies
  • Nothing Don’t show me anything in this Category

I imagine this proposal could be further improved.

For this iteration, I think going to four options makes it simpler and the language is more common wording.

Thanks for your consideration. :slight_smile:


No, we won’t be doing this. You are completely free to edit copy on your site as you see fit of course.
