New Post Notifications Overly Broad

I have subscribed for email notifications, a useful feature, and recieve emails about the games to which I am subscribed. Slightly less useful is the reminds that there have been new posts in sections like:

quote:
Community Chat                                  - 15,941 posts.
Game Proposals, Input, and Advice               - 6,469 posts.
Wanted - GMs                                    - 5,562 posts.
Wanted - Players                                - 4,861 posts.


Is there any way to disable or suppress notifications from these sections? I am aware that I can simply set up a filtering rule on my end to throw out messages not containing my game names, but I would prefer to use an existing solution if there is one.

At this time, no -- the notification tells you if there are any new posts in those forums you have on your sticky list.  There's no category in it for "on my list but I don't want to know if there are new posts".  :)

The place to look for/request changes/new features is the RPoL Development forum: link to another game.

I had a quick look and spotted that there was a change proposed a while back to only show messages in threads where the user has posted: link to a message in another game.

But I don't think that'll be coming any time soon - jase noted that since RPoL is a roleplaying site, he prefers to devote his development efforts to RP functionality rather than Forum functionality.
