I'm not interested, in the slightest, about the sticker system, i think they're a pointless, childish, waste of time, time that could be better used doing far more important work.

 

Which brings me to this, i log in to see a pm, i open it only to find this;

I know i've been here for 2 years, i don't need reminding, and i certainly don't need, or want, a sticker. Mine are turned off for the reason mentioned above.

 

I'm at a loss as to why gg think we are all children who need to be validated by stickers when we reach a certain milestone, and then to be spammed via pm about them is like rubbing salt into the wound.

 

I don't want pm's about stickers, is there an opt out for that one thing without opting out of all?

@4128334 , you can't opt out of receiving sticker pm's only.

I've just checked, and you've deselected your stickers, but you don't actually have them off.

Head to your settings page, uncheck 'show stickers' under Preferences, and you should see stickers vanish from the site and you shouldn't get any further PMs.

@4128334 , thank you for your help anyway.

@t_will , i did that before, and saved the changes, so i'm not sure how that has happened. I've done it again, so we'll see if it reverts back again. Thank you.

I'll check into that with the folks - do you know roughly when you would have done that? We might be able to see what happened on our end.

You're also welcome to add @stickernews to your ignore list if you want.

Agree 100%. Stickers serve no purpose and add no value.

I tend to agree with you on stickers @geu42 they are rather childish ... however my response is to be childish in return and continue to display only the snowman right through the summer 😂😂😂
Very disappointed he’s been given shades though ... his coal is not affected by sunlight 😎😎

Personally I’d quite like to turn off the ‘you’ve ranked up’ ones, especially as they were still sending 2 last time I ranked up
