# Subscribing to solutions to a problem

Is there any way one can subscribe to email notifications whenever a solution to a certain problem is posted? If not, could the Brilliant staff please think about including this feature? I'm very interested in seeing various solutions people submit to my problems, and I have to go through each of my posed problems everyday in order to check if a new solution has been posted.

Also, can we stop getting emails whenever someone follows us in Brilliant? I find that particular feature pointless. Why would anybody want to get notified for followers while the list of followers has been arranged beautifully in a separate page? It's essentially equivalent to getting notified whenever someone votes one of your solutions up.

Thanks.

Hi Sreejato,

Thanks for your feature request, we will seriously consider allowing you to subscribe to a notification for when a solution is posted to a problem you like. I want that too and it seems like it would be a great way to keep track of the problems you care about.

To unsubscribe from receiving emails every time someone follows you, uncheck the box on this page. You can get there through account settings --->email, in the upper right hand corner menu.

You can also reach the email opt out page from the emails we send you. See the, "Unsubscribe from notifications about new followers" line beneath the email.

Thanks! I'll be waiting for it. :)

Regarding my second point, I guess I should have looked at my emails carefully instead of just posting it mindlessly here. Sorry.

No worries :) The unsubscribe buttons really aren't that obvious, we will consider making that more intuitive. In general, those are really important emails for making people who are new/first-time publishers feel good/encouraged about what they are doing. For people like you though, we could see why they are a nuisance.
