Create a post w/out sending an alert

Product: Eve Community

Is there a way to create a post to a new board without an e-mail alert going out to the members?


I would like to create a new board and post a welcome message, but do not want an alert going to the members notifying them of the post.

Hi Kellyne,


By "a new board" do you mean a new forum? If so, only users subscribed to the forum will be notified of new topics posted to it. So, if you create a new forum, users will not be subscribed to it by default. The only way they will get notified of the post is if they are subscribed to all new topics across all forums (and that is typically a more rare scenario).


There is no way to completely prevent subscribed members from getting notified of a new post, though.


Does that help?
