voting in gitlab merge request automatically subscribes to it

Brynn
Hi Friends,
        I recently clicked the thumb up/down icon in gitlab merge request,
responding to a mailing list message, which asked for a simple vote.  And
suddenly email is pouring in!

        I finally found how to unsubscribe, but the checkbox for it is in a
separate panel on the right side of the page, which scrolls separately from the
main window.  Since the checkbox is below the first page, and the panel scrolls
separately, and the panel does not even have a scrollbar, it was hard to find.
(had to zoom out)

        Anyway, I've searched through all the personal settings I can find,
without success.  Is there some way not to subscribe to something by simply
voting, and I just didn't find it?

        If there's no way to change my personal settings, I wanted to ask if it
would be possible to globally disable subscribing to the thing (merge request,
issue, whatever) by simply voting.

Thanks,
brynn

Hi Brynn,

the documentation for gitlab's notification settings is available here:
https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/workflow/notifications.html

Hope that helps!

Re: voting in gitlab merge request automatically subscribes to it

Thanks Maren :-)

Whoa!  I don't have anything like the screenshot at the top of that page.  When
I click on Profile, in the dropdown menu under my avatar in the top-right
corner, I get this:

https://inkscapecommunity.com/jd/ss/gl1.png

Also in that dropdown menu is Settings.  Here's what I get with that:

https://inkscapecommunity.com/jd/ss/gl2.png

Also in that same dropdown menu is Help.  https://gitlab.com/help which I
haven't found very helpful at all.

Next is Contribute to GitLab, which of course I wouldn't click on that, because
I can't contribute.  ....Oh, or is that for a donation (of money)?  And after
that, is Log Out.

I've looked at just about every button I can find on a gitlab page, and I can't
find anything like that.

I never would have thought to look in the documentation in gitlab's own account
for help with my profile.  I thought that would be about how use the site for
developing a project.

But now that I have it, I still don't know how to find what it's showing in that
screenshot.  I mean, that's exactly what I've been looking for.  But where is
it?

Sorry if I'm being dense, but I've really clicked on almost everything that
would seem to make sense (and a lot of stuff that I don't understand at all).
Maybe I just don't have the right permissions or something?

Thanks again,
brynn

Hi Brynn,

yes, they changed their interface a bit. Seems not only our docs aren't
always up-to-date ;-)

1. Click on your avatar in the top right corner
2. Select 'Settings'
3. Click on 'Notifications' button (a bell) on the left side
4. Change settings.

On the left side....  Ooohhhh, a hidden panel!  Lovely!

You know why I never looked at that?  I thought it was the same panel that I see
when I have the Inkscape account open (with issues and merges), and was hidden
simply because I don't need it when I'm looking at my profile.  I thought the
profile page was more or less on top of whatever I was looking at before, and
that part of the panel that's showing was the same panel from the page I was on
before.

Insert a swearword.

In my opinion, everything about the profile should be in the same menu, under
the avatar.

Thanks Maren.
