New Discussion Notifications for Category only

Hi Everyone,

We are using Valnilla Forums (Garden, Conversations) in version I don't know if this is normal, default behavior but
when new discussion is made , notification emails are going to every user.
Is there a way to make this forum sent notifications only to those who hava a right to specific category?

Sorry if something is poorly explained

    It is possible that the default is checked in the user preference pane. In that case the user needs to uncheck that option and any other notification option available to choose from which they don't want to receive notifications .

    I am not sure about the second part, I would guess that only those with permissions to access that category or discussion would get notifications. If this is not the case then there should be a way to change that. Maybe someone can come up with the answer to that.

    Thanks for reply, Sadly I haven't found a way to do it by preferences nor dashboard. In the end I turned off ALL default notifications and installed plugin EMailSubscribe by cdavid.
    It works great but I don't se no way to set it to send notifications only about new discussions and ommit comments ;/...
