I can't. No matter what I do, they're checked. :help

MWP on Win7 Pro SP-1 x64 on two Lenovo S20s, two Thinkpads, and two HP Elitebooks. MWP also on three Win10 Pro x64 machines (two Intel NUCs and an Asus Zenbook). All have Norton Security, Malwarebytes Premium, and Surfshark VPN.

It can be un-checked — but, after the Submit button is clicked and the page reloads, it reverts to checked.

The Notifications are getting marked read, for me — the tick mark remains, though (that's because it's a part of the Heading text and shall therefore remain checked.)

OK, but it appears to be eye candy. I mean, after they've been read, what are they good for? It should be possible to delete them.

And don't they ultimately take up a lot of server storage somewhere? After all, we're talking about a plethora of notifications from numerous forum members.

Addendum: The notifications don't get deleted even when you unsubscribe from the topic.

From what I can tell, the server keeps notifications for 30 days. I can reduce that if desired ?

You're right about not being able to disable, looks like a bug that PHPBB3 aren't in a hurry to fix.

They actually insist that the new Notification implementation is by design and a feature of the new forum Board. :thumbsdown

BTW, seeing it on the OP after a long time — the old (gray) forum theme looks gross. :devil
