Breaking free? An experiment.

You

98 views

I am atm like 10h on the machine, and mostly like a zombie, distracting myself over and over again for hours while playing f2p games. I restore the firefox session each time, get my 50 notifications on MLPF and then....well, being busy for some hours.

It feels I lack awareness to many things, or motivation.

I want to test out something.

I will disable new SU notifications for people I follow. I will still get these if you tag me or put a quote of me, or I have replied to it or have posted the SU myself.

Also, I will remove the restore session on Firefox of each new start - Heh, I will save the current just in case, and still leave some commonly used tabs pinned.

Let's see how it goes. I want to be more aware of what I do, and do it on purpose instead of just...dragging by.

This is why I try to limit the amount of various notifications I get. If I get so many notifications/emails/etc that I am unable to react to them all, it means I am getting too many and have to figure out how to reduce the number to a manageable level.

I also place different notifications/etc in different places - for example, I do not get emails about MLPF notifications (except private messages). When I wan to and have time, I open the MLPF tab and check the notifications, but they do not get mixed up with emails that may be important.

I hope it helps you.

It feels like a chore, as one vowed to oneself to read all of them.

That's the reason for reducing the number of notifications. If some are not important, then they should not clog up the inbox or whatever, that way the important stuff is more easily noticed.

I can't be bothered to go through as many as before either. :adorkable: I had 602 notifications today (after a few days of not checking them), I'll just check out the latest ones and mentions – most of the earlier ones are probably no longer relevant anyway. :please:

The only thing I turned off was the latter, I did this shortly after joining this site and this alone reduced the amount notifications immensely. Otherwise the notifications would be full of  images and "spam" and chances are I don't see the important stuff inbetween. The first one though was turned off by default, I think.

I didn't need to, but it may also help to turn off notifications about the brohooves. If you didn't already, though.

Always here, if you need someone to talk to. Maybe I just see things implied, but I'm familiar with those in case. *hugs*

Imagine he would get an alert each time HE is brohoofing someone.:please:

I am pretty sure he would even brohoof the brohooves he gives to our brohooves.

*hugs @Schattenherz* Thanks for the kind words, my friend! :rarity:

Brohoofing brohoofs sounds fun, I'd definitely do that if it was possible! :ticking:

When someone reacts to a lot of my posts at once, one of my first thoughts is that a lot of people's notifications must look like that every day. :adorkable:
