New Notifications Features

    Today I am happy to announce a few new features in how HubPages handles Notifications.  These changes are designed to improve the experience of all users on Hubpages.
      * All new notifications settings are now handled from the email settings page.
      * You can determine the behavior that HubPages takes when you new content is created on Hubs that you follow, Questions that you follow, and Forum topics that you follow.
      * Currently we do our best to determine when you should be contacted about new content (such as a new comment on a Hub, a new Answer to a question, or a new Post to a forum topic).  This is the "auto" choice.  You can also choose to be always, or never, notified of new content.
      * Today we are also unveiling a new feature: the Notifications Digest.  The digest will be sent out once a day, and will include a summary of all of your notifications for the day in one email.
      * Lastly, we are releasing a "Vacation" setting.  If you select this, then HubPages will not send you any notification emails until you uncheck the box.

    We hope that you enjoy these new features!

      I keep getting emails I don't want even though I set it to never email me about them.

      And now it won't let me go edit my settings.
      I tried on IE9 and Firefox and it just shows me the gray background after I put in my secret answer.

      I'm sure this will be buggy at first but it doesn't work for me at all.
      Sends me stuff I told it not to... for the past two days.
      And I can't even go in and edit it now.

    I just received one of these e-mails and wondered what it was all about. Glad this post was here. Thanks for the quick update and it sounds like a great system.

    I love the idea of a way to stop notifications during a vacation. Not that I have any money for vacations.  But there are times when I'm involved in a festival where I'm ther efor several days all day and night and I  have no time for checking email.  That would certainly help if I could do this was everyone

    Ari, are the E-mail settings and Digest settings paired in a specific way?  I wanted to leave Digest set to "Always" and E-mail to "Never," but after I saved the changes, all of the E-mail buttons showed up as "Auto."  Is that supposed to happen?  (I tried it a couple of different ways with the same result.)

      Aficionada,

      I am not sure why you were unable to make this change, but I have gone ahead and made it for you.  Can you take a look at your new settings and confirm that they are now set up to achieve what you want?

      Ari

        I just now checked, and it looks perfect!  Thank you.

        I think maybe my browser was just tired.  Working too hard or something.

        I'm having the same problem Ari. It would be great to get a digest rather than individual e-mails but when I change and save the settings it reverts back to auto on the e-mail buttons.
