For the past few days I've been getting a "There is 1 badge you are close to earning" notification every day. It's for a vote in the poll of the day badge though, which means I'll presumably continue to get them over and over for minimum another 20 days until I finally get the badge.

Can someone make that stop, please? Or better yet, let us opt-out of badge related notifications altogether. (I have zero interest in badges and would just as soon ignore the whole system entirely.)

That sounds more like a bug than not, but either way considering I'm having the same issue.... *sign*

All it does is clog up my notifications. Extremely annoying.

That notification only gets sent out on the first day of the month. It's entirely possible a live test of upcoming badges triggered the notification multiple times; sorry about that.

Sort of related, but I'm also getting notifications of the posts in this topic, despite having "Notify on Posts in My Topics" set to no. Is that setting ignored on feedback boards?

Shouldn't be. Are you certain that setting is disabled?

It's disabled. I don't get notifications on other topics I've created. Just this one for some reason.

In my case the Rater badge is likely the culprit (92%). I would need to rate another 21 games to get rid of the notification.

Daily or monthly, gets annoying all the same. *signs*

I don't really pay attention and would rather get notifications for other things
