Why do I keep getting email messages when someone replies to a message that I wrote or replied to?

When you post a new message or reply to an existing one on the Disney Echo, you'll automatically be notified in email whenever someone replies to that message in the future.

For those like you who don't want up-to-the-minute notification when someone has responded to a message you've written about or replied to (or simply instructed the Disney Echo software to keep track of and notify you in email -- called "Your Mouseke-Tracker"), make sure you uncheck the box next to "Do you wish to Mouseke-Track this topic?" when you post a message or reply to an existing one. By default, this feature is "on."

How do I stop getting email messages about replies to Disney Echo topics that I've written or replied to?

Previously, you'd have to go into your Topic Mouseke-Tracker and select "Stop Mouseke-Tracking" one by one for each of the topics. But there's a new modification to the board that makes this much faster and easier. Here's how to delete all of your Mouseke-Tracker subscriptions:

  • 1. You can now go into the Topic Mouseke-Tracker (either directly by clicking that link, found near the top of the page on the line that says "Your MouseControl Panel - Log Out - Notes - New Posts - Topic Mouseke-Tracker" or by going into "Your MouseControl Panel" and then clicking the boxed "Topic Mouseke-Tracker" link)

  • 2. ...and after the system takes a minute or two (depending on how many topics you are subscribed to) it will then display a page with all of the topics that you've instructed the Topic Mouseke-Tracker to subscribe you to.

  • 3. Now instead of having to click "Stop Mouseke-Tracking" one by one on each topic, waiting for the screen to refresh each time, there is a new "Cancel all your subscriptions" link (which shows how many you have) to the right of where it says "Current subscriptions."

  • 4. If you click that new "Cancel all..." link you will indeed almost instantly cancel all of the topics you've been Mouseke-Tracking, after you confirm in the "Are you sure you want to delete your subscriptions" popup that you really do want to do that.

Here's an illustration, when only one message was subscribed to:

If you have any questions about this, just reply to this message.

I want to know about some updates to the Disney Echo, but just the important ones - - not every single message!

Then subscribe to MouseNotes, which are not going to spam your email inbox with a notification for each message and won't even send out a daily list like some websites do. It is designed for EchoEars who choose to sign up for this feature to alert them to important messages posted on the Disney Echo (complete with links) and breaking news you can use, rather than constantly putting out mailings every day.

It won't alert you to every single new thing, but just the really important updates. And granted, you won't know about everything right as it happens, but that's why we also offer the Mouseke-Tracker -- or you can chose neither of these and simply look at the Disney Echo Welcome Page under where it says "Just take a look at all the things that Disney EchoEars have been writing about recently" and check the list of recently-posted subjects, then only look at what interests you -- or check the scrollable list under
"Hot Topics" on the Disney Echo's main forum page and use it the same way.
