I'm getting about 3 emails a day in this format:
You are a perfect fit for a new Job - be quick and get it
You're one of the most qualified Sellers for the Job x because of your skills in y.
Further down the emails it says:
If you do not possess the skills mentioned above, you can remove them from your profile.
The skills listed on that page are totally irrelevant to what I'm receiving emails about. I've got PHP and MySQL listed as my skills, and I'm continually getting jobs for designing banner ads. I took on a couple small jobs converting banner ad GIFs to Flash ages ago, and that must be why I've been targeted.
How do I turn off these annoying, useless emails?
The email options page in my account is stupidly simple, and very unclear about what emails will or will not be sent at different settings levels. At the moment it's at the middle level, if I change it to the lowest level will I still receive emails when a real buyer has specifically selected me for a job, as they sometimes do? It's obviously very important that I still get these emails. Automated ones on the other hand are very annoying and completely useless.
