Why did I get a notification in chat about ".NET Programming Puzzles" in C# chat?

Does it have to be so intrusive? Do we need it at all? I mean I'm in another chatroom which has nothing to do with c#.

i hate puzzles


Ok I might have been in that room at some point. Any way to disable it?

Also see the related post with [status-completed]. Completed how? Where do I opt out? How to prevent receiving pings I don't want?


OK it is impossible to opt out. Can I make this into a [feature-request]? As it currently works it shows a "huge" banner and I think it also pings me. While there is a huge banner. Wouldn't it be possible to just add an extra link stating: "do not bug me again with these banners from this room"?

    Your initial reaction is interesting. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 30 '12 at 0:14

    Anyway, I imagine you'd love for this to be implemented, but it obviously hasn't been done yet: Let users opt out of scheduled event notifications – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 30 '12 at 0:21
  • Glad you like my reaction. Almost as intrusive as the notifications :) What's that status on that one? Not deferred / declined / finished? – PeeHaa Jun 30 '12 at 0:29

    The notifications should only show for those that have signed up for the event, IMO. – Kyle Trauberman Jun 30 '12 at 1:07

    @BoltClock'saUnicorn Over time my reaction has built-up to that – Michael Mrozek Jun 30 '12 at 1:28

    You're getting it because you entered that room at some point in the past. And, best I can tell, you will now get them foreverrrr – Ben Brocka Jun 30 '12 at 1:49
  • I don't understand your edit -- are you saying that you received another notification despite not having been in the room? – balpha Aug 13 '12 at 16:44

You received the notification because you have once talked in that room (contrary to what random says, just having been there wouldn't have caused this).

Now of cause those were two messages posted more than half a year ago, which can hardly be interpreted as "this is a room you're interested in", thus by the new "when will you be notified" logic, you wouldn't have received that notification.

    Guess that's the difference between a voyeur and someone who opens their mouth – random Jun 30 '12 at 12:41
