    Generally, the conversation feature & the notifications seem to work pretty well.

    However, when an admin starts a conversation with a huge number of people (53 in this case) could you possibly disable the emailed alerts at least for the responses of those 53? By the time this "conversation" runs its course, I'll probably have deleted 200-300 emails unread.

    Click Inbox next to your name, top right. Kinda like PM's.

    There is always an option to leave the conversation once and for all ;)

    It's a secret conversation ;) I am actually surprised that you are not included in the list. You can refer to the last page of the likeathon thread to see part of Randy's message in the conversation

    Two choices- you can disable e-mail notification for conversations, or just set up a filter on your mail program (I assume you use a quality mail program like Eudora, and not some flaky thing) which will silently dump all these announcements into one box. Then, all you have to see is that there are new notices in that box, and you can empty that box and log in here to check them. Pretty painless either way.

    Most people in that conversation are on MP 24/7 anyway, so IMHO none of them need the conversation e-mail alerts anyway!

    So you think they are tracking how much time we are spending here? That would be some interesting information.

    No. Gargoyle's comment was based upon knowing the individuals in the "conversation" as frequent MPers. [​IMG]
    I don't think there is any secret tracking going on by MP admins, though I could be wrong.
