Fear of In-Box Overload! (Like Ed H's post about collapsing threads)

Use a newsreader and subscribe to the Forum RSS feeds of your choice. Skip the email clutter entirely.

So now I'm wondering how my reply to Stuart's post showed up ahead of the original. Causality does NOT like to be violated.

So... did somebody reset the clock on the server or something, or have I discovered new physics? Is the LHC misbehaving again?

OK, OK, I know, I should have moved over here earlier! I just went to each forum and subscribed to each (don't want to miss anything) but am now living in abject fear of many, many emails each day instead of my old choice of ONE overnight summary and I could decide if I wanted to read one, or log into "Talk" and read everything.

So Will, is it possible with this template or by programming to allow each user to not only subscribe to the forums they desire to see postings in (or perhaps subscribe to a single unified "All" forum) and ALSO to be able to select a single, once-per-day, summary of what has been posted to make BBC only one email per day (like a prompt) instead of potentially getting tens of emails clogging up our inboxes?

No.

Brian,  check your user account settings to make sure you're on eastern time.

I'm on Eastern time, and all my posts are marked with the correct time. But I REPLIED to Stuart's post, and IT was timestamped as not-having-happened-yet. Doesn't the server know when it receives these posts? Why should it care what the users TZ settings are? In any case, it appears to be Stuart who is on EDT++.  =P

vBulletin software (like what is used on bikeforums.net and cyclingforums.com) has these subscription options and it's too bad that Agora doesn't or it isn't enabled:

Yes, +1 for options like that. I didn't realize I was subscribing by default when I first posted here. I prefer to follow everything via RSS. I can't seem to figure out how to "unsubscribe" a thread.

BrianW - From the tab menu up top - Users - My Profile - Subscriptions.  You can turn off the autosuscribe and you can also unsubscribe there.
