    Martin, Aug 26, 2014 :
    Hi everyone,

    Thanks to all our amazing fans this forum is growing incredibly quickly. With such growth comes certain performance considerations for the IT people here at OnePlus. Today one of those considerations is the watching of threads, specifically watching with emails.

    When some of our threads grow to hundreds of thousands of posts they start being watched by tens of thousands of people. That means every time someone adds a reply all of these people have to be notified and this causes a strain on our poor servers.

    Therefore we're resetting watched threads and forums and changing your default setting to not watching by default

    There are two ways you can keep watching threads. You can either use the options just below the post reply text box:

    upload_2014-8-26_11-48-30.png

    or you can change your default watch settings back to what they were before by going to your Preferences page.

    upload_2014-8-26_11-45-12.png

    And then changing your settings to your preferred default.

    upload_2014-8-26_11-44-26.png

    With either of these ways you will be back to your old, well known, default of plenty of notices of new messages/threads.

    I think "sheeple" is kind of rude...

    Edit: I guess it was changed to "everyone" after the email went out.
