I've accumulated a fair amount of rep on one site and don't want to lose that across the network, but also do not really wish to be re-engaged in that site. I was wondering if there was a way to simply disable site-specific notifications from specific sites (up in the notifications area). If not, would this be a valid feature request?

+1 for feeling sorry for you. – Kermit May 8 '13 at 15:27
This might be relevant: How can I disassociate an account? (No longer possible, unfortunately). – hammar May 8 '13 at 15:30
What do you mean by "and don't want to lose that across the network"? That you still want it to be visible in your flair for example? – Bart May 8 '13 at 15:32
@Bart would rather not lose the rep accumulated ... buuuuuuuut if i must then i must – swasheck May 8 '13 at 15:40
Well, if that is all, can you then not add another OpenID to that particular account only and remove the one you use for your other accounts? Or would that not work? – Bart May 8 '13 at 15:41
thanks. i'll give that a shot – swasheck May 8 '13 at 15:47
I think that would be a valuable feature. I occasionally have extended times when my internet access is limited (oh, the horror!), and at those times it would be really helpful if I could temporarily surpress particularly "noisy" sites from my global inbox so I could focus on the most-important sites (like, say, the ones where I'm a moderator). I don't want to permanently alter those accounts, only shut them up for a week or two. – Monica Cellio May 8 '13 at 16:37
@Bart I'm not really sure how to do that, now that I'm trying to actually do it. – swasheck May 8 '13 at 17:09
If you go to your account page and then "my logins" you can add another login. Once done you could remove the other one that is shared with all sites. I think that should do the trick, but proceed with caution. ;) – Bart May 8 '13 at 18:26

This is probably not the answer you were looking for, but if you're desperate it'll do. I wrote css for the stylish addon (chrome or firefox) that hides notification links to a particular stackexchange. https://userstyles.org/styles/110509/stack-exchange-notification-hider In my css you'll have to swap out toxic.stackexchange.com for whichever SE you're trying to ignore.
