Would it be possible to make an account setting so a user can prevent themselves from ever being tagged/ever getting any notifications from it? I don't want to be @'d by anyone ever. I always ask people not to if they do it to me, but they often forget/don't listen and do it again later, or it provokes them or others to intentionally do it just to annoy me.

If I have any interest in checking that someone responded to me, I will, I don't need them or the site to notify me of it. I can remember what topics I've posted in. Really wish this system was never added in the first place.

And secondary suggestion if that's not gonna happen: Make it so you don't get notified when someone just quotes a post where you were tagged. One of the things I find most annoying about it is that I can get dozens of notifications if that post starts a quote chain.

To illustrate how annoying it is: In one topic that's up right now, someone did it, I asked them not to, they did it again, someone quoted that post giving me another notification, then a third person tagged me in his own post, THEN that same third person did it again to me even though he was actually responding to that second person and just lazily assumed he was responding to another post of mine instead of actually reading the name of the person he was quoting.

I'd like both. I wouldn't use the first but I can see how it'd be annoying.

I like the idea but I'd like to know if it's feasible before signing.

Message one of the mods directly, if they're intentionally dropping mentions to spam and annoy you I want to say that's moddable.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

I thought this was an option already but I guess not.

A "notify me once per topic" option would be ideal.

I like being able to tag users/be tagged but there obviously wasn't any effort put into limiting potential abuse of the system.

An option to only be tagged by users on your friends list would be nice, too.

It kind of beats the whole point if someone can block the notifications.

And how annoying is it really? Its like a couple of seconds at most to check a notification.

If its being abused then mark the message, otherwise there is such minimal inconvenience its not even worth worrying about.

I have marked them before and they usually don't get moderated. I've been told it is moddable if I explain why in the comments section, but I feel like it's not possible to explain the situation in the rather limited amount of characters I'm allowed to put in the comments section of a moderation flag.

Which I guess is another suggestion I have, expand that limit.
