Ah, I didn't mean to say I am not checking my PMs because of these, but I meant instead that they're all that I see bold (unread) every time I skim over my inbox which is quite annoying.
Quote:No, but really, reading a "System: Your Post was edited by a moderator"-PM will give you a direct link to the post in question anyways, so I don't see a reason why to not check them.
Because most of the time I'm going to navigate to that thread anyway and often know where exactly I'm to find the edit.
Quote: After all, as you said, "it's supposed to be a notification for important content from a mod" (looking at some modnotices, this is debateable but still),
Ah yes. It does disturb me sometimes to find that the content of the edit has nothing to do with moderation but text which really could've fitted into a relevant post of decent length.
Quote:Of course, I could separate modnotice-PMs and normal PMs but that is quite some ugly work and will probably cost a full day to get it working properly which I cannot afford at this point. Plus, I don't think it's worth the time spent.
A full day worth of work is not worth spending for fixing such a problem, I concur. But perhaps there is something simpler that can be done? Maybe make the notifications a bit more manual (a button appearing for a mod with which he can choose to use to notify a member in case his edit is worth immediate attention). At the very least, mods can try to sympathize with hasty morons like me by weighing their opportunities in using the privilege more before they do ?_?.
I know all of this may sound very trivial to most here, but it really did get out of hand as I previously did click on every single one of them until this time when they got over 4, and I started lazing off because it's started to get uselessly repetitive.
