My defaults for subscriptions to GLs are "GL Item = yes", "Comment = No". But I keep getting subscription items for Comments on GL items (items that I have not subscribed to individually).

I had expected that my subscription would only trigger when an Item is added to the GL, is my expectation incorrect?

That's how I thought it ought to work. I spent some time fiddling with all the settings I could find, and eventually gave up and stopped bothering with geeklists. I suspect that the way they work with subscriptions is just broken; how else does one explain an item being marked "blocked" and yet still triggering?

That's how I have mine set and it works. Do you have geeklists turned off in both the items and users sections as well?

For Users, no - but then I don't subscribe to any Users. For Items, yes. The triggers don't seem to be for Games, Families or Designers that I've subscribed to.

(I know that most subscription "errors" are just user-configuration-driven, which is why I asked the question - to make sure that it wasn't a misunderstanding of the GL subscription that was tripping me up. I'll double-check the trigger given in my subscriptions list next time it happens.)
