Notifications work identically to thread watching notifications: you'll only receive one about a thread until you view it on the forum. Like threads, you can manage your watched forums in bulk via a dedicated page. This can also be used to simply filter only to forums you're interested in. Administrators can also limit the type of notifications that can be triggered when watching a forum: This can be useful to reduce the number of notifications that will be triggered on particularly busy forums.
