No you are not the only one.. but I still like this site a lot.. just wish some changes to it had not been made and hope they put it back the way it was.. I do think they are just trying things out to see what others think about them.. but closing questions after 48 hours was wrong in my view.. as some are committed to other things in real life and do not maybe come back here before that question is closed.. yet they see it and want to post their comment or take on it.. only to find no more things can be added as it is now closed
You can disable certain notifications by going to your settings page, scrolling down to where it says "notifications" and then unchecking the boxes of the notifications you no longer want to receive. Then click "save."
Yes. Yes you are. Because the other threads posted before yours complaining about the same things and the dozens of people agreeing with them don't mean a thing. You can just turn off everything in the settings. Qed.
