Do you like it better with your friends' notifications on or off?

I have mine set to on so all the new discussions and responses comes to my email BUT I get so many emails that it is overwhelming at times. Do you like it better to go to the site and get discussions your friends have started or Do you like them to come to your email?

I have a very select few that I have on to notify me when they have started a new discussion I only have those as true friends and those that I truly enjoy most of their discussions. That way my emails inbox is not overwhelmed with so many mylot new discussion emails. But I do answer them and then I go to check out the discussions my friends started as soon as I basically get on mylot and snwer those I do not have on notify. Maybe you should try it that way for a day see how it goes. I am sure your friends won't mind they probably have their set up this way too some of them anyhow. Well good luck.

I leave the notification on and get lots of emails. It is easier for me to go through them and answer as many as I can. But if I let them go for several days, there would be too many to go through. It is quicker than searching the site for topics to answer, at least it is for me.

I missed a couple of days this weekend and had to just delete them and not get to go post on them. There was just way too many.

I actually prefer that they come through my email so I try to make an effort to respond, however it has been so overwhelming that I either post to some and not all. I skim through the discussions and if I can post a quick reply then I will then and there, if not, I will leave it in my inbox until I am able to respond. Sometimes I have deleted some just because I don't have anything to say. I had one friend that was posting 30-40 discussions a day and I just got fed up and turned the notification button off - its way too much for my liking LOL

I have my notifications on, so that I can go through my e-mail to post a discussion. But I can agree with you, it sends a lot of e-mail, especially when you get a lot of post from a discussion you have started. On a message I started yesterday, I have had 60 responses. So that is 60 e-mails that I have alone. I try to respond to all of them, but the more I get the harder it is to keep up with.

I set mine to 'on' too as I want to see how many new discussions I have when I opened my email. I will also check the discussions my friends started. My email provider is quite slow so I will normally just check the other side.
