Weird Bug

OK, while cleaning up and editing already established pges in my Shadows of New York Site (see link in signature below), a weird thing keeps happening. On every page, it wants to notify ONE player in my game that the page was updated. I have triple checked and he is listed simply as a player in the game. Fortunately, he doesn;t check his email much, as I just noticed this, though I know he's gonna give me heck when he gets 20+ emails saying pages were updated.
I've looked at the settings and there is no where to tell it not to send out these updates
So, right now I am clicking off his notification every time I edit or re-edit a page. It doesn;t even save and clicked off.

Keelah Se'lai,

    I've been noticing it too. I think it's actually different: I think it defaults on to people's profile settings:
    @Receive e-mail newsletters?
    Receive notifications on ALL forum posts?
    Receive notifications on ALL wiki edits?
    Receive notifications on ALL character [email protected]

    If they have it on, then their name defaults as on.

    At least... That's my observation.

    Yeah, I've had the same issue with a player receiving emails for all updates. Have them turn off notifications and that'll go away.

    So yet another example of the email fix not being fixed, still.

    ...I'm not sure I agree.

    This specific item isn't really a bug; the player's account simply has "receive all notifications" turned on. I just recently enabled this for my own campaign use, and now my username is selected whenever I edit/create a page (in the same way described by Keryth987 above). One of my players also apparently has this turned on, and now that I know what's causing it I can show her how to disable this so she stops getting flooded with emails.

    Ok, so this feature is broken-
    I had a player get all of them, another get 3 of 5.
    One still is not getting any emails.

    killervp that is definitely NOT a email fix issue. This has been a feature of Obsidian Portal for years and certainly helped my Throne of Thorns campaign get over 300 adventure logs.

    They are among us!

    I have all my players set to "Receive notifications on ALL forum posts". I have mine set on "Receive notifications on ALL forum posts." AND "Receive notifications on ALL character edits." It seems to work fine for us, other than the fix I need to see (and I presume, send) my own posts. (Described in the "Email Fix":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=4057&page=2#Comment_34017 thread.)

    Sorry killervp, I didn't realize you're having an issue separate from what Keryth987 described above. I think the problem he describes isn't a bug, but a misunderstanding of the site features.

    Yours, however, sounds like an annoying friggin' bug. :-P

    Yea, I can confirm that this is that feature in action for notifications. killervp's issue is something different.

    Well, I have VISUALLY verified that the player receiving updates DOES NOT have that option checked.
