Is the ProductWiki email notifications supposed to be sending me random updates from all across ProductWiki or just from those people I'm following?  Of late, I seem to get at least one email a day from ProductWiki for updates things I have no interest in.  Today's example is I got a notification telling me somebody named "minal081" commented on "Coach Hamptons Stripe Satchel".  I'm sure that's very nice for "minal081" but until I got this email I'd never heard of this person and I've no idea why I'm getting this notification.

Sorry about that!!

I got the same message too!

Well here's the way it's supposed to work:

At 3pm everyday the system checks to see if there's been any activity to the reports on your "watchlist" or by the people you've followed, if so it sends out an e-mail to you.

When you contribute to a report it automatically adds it to your "watchlist" you can remove it from your watchlist by going to the report, and at the botton right-hand corner click on the button that says "remove from watchlist".

You can also see every report on your watchlist by going to www.productwiki.com//watchlist and manage the list from there.

As for minal081... I'll have to check if that was supposed to happen based on the design, or if there's a bug in the system.

I'm thinking it's a bug.  minal081 isn't a user I'm following and I'd not touched/seen that "Coach Hamptons Stripe Satchel" entry until this email arrived.  Just shooting in the dark but maybe it's happening because somebody I watched is watching
minal081 and/or the "Coach Hamptons Stripe Satchel" entry?

It seems to be a bug. We'll get the problem fixed ASAP.

Thanks for pointing it out, Manzabar, and sorry for any inconvenience. I didn't take you guys for the Coach Satchel-type. :)
