This question is a followup to 2013's Isn't there a way to unsubscribe from already answered questions (and badge notifications)? by Tom Brito.
I want to unsubscribe from notifications about some questions when they are either
- already answered
Back in 2013 the tenor of the comments was “It is not possible, by design”, but by now it is becoming a spam-problem for me.
Unless I have asked a new question within the last few days, by now the majority of inbox notifications I receive are no longer relevant to me. This can be because there was already a satisfactory answer or because I asked it so long ago, that it simply has lost relevance since. Yet I still receive notifications about new answers or comments.
Obviously I wouldn't want to flag such questions for closing, as new answers may very well still be relevant to others.
The old question received Question disowned by author/moderator as a possible answer (as a comment). This does however seem like overkill – also I don't see how either case warrants administrator intervention.
Hence I'd appreciate an option to unsubscribe from the notifications. Since having this option unconditionally would invite poor quality questions that are quickly abandoned, prerequisites such as a minimum age of the question or having an accepted answer could be required.
