Go to http://www.quantnet.com/forum/account/preferences and uncheck "and receive email notifications of replies". Then go to http://www.quantnet.com/forum/watched/threads/all, check off all them, then select Disable email notification at the menu at the bottom.I might be missing something, but I keep getting emails every time someone responds to a thread that I've posted in, even though I've gone to settings and turned off "Preferences > Receive email notications of replies" and "Alert Preferences > Messages in Threads" (all options).
I like to see the alerts in the red at the top menu to show me who has replied to stuff, but all the emails are driving me nuts, so I'm obviously missing some setting... anyone help please?
i would like to see a 'roommate feature added for each program, to make the search for roommates easier once you join an mfe program. that way, you can ensure that you are staying with a financial engineer, as opposed to say, with a 60 yr old woman as is in my case.
New York base marketplace? Just an extra section for people to possibly sell books and so on. Maybe furniture and what not between NYC area students.
No offense intended.
I believed that Quantnet talked about Finance/quant related stuff. I believe we are moving away from that ideology as I see more posts directed towards specific person/group of people, selling stuff, finding roommates, threads filled with people debating not very appreciative way (in fact very hard to classify those posts in "debate" category). I agree that these threads/features are informative and helpful but in that case we might even change the name from "QuantNet" to something else.
This was one of the reason for my request of having a "disagree" button. It helps disagreeing with some suggestion/argument without having to worry about making someone else feel offended.
I don't expect to offer any marketplace anytime soon. Given the very low volume of these type of posts, they are being handled just fine via private message/email.New York base marketplace?
