When I decide, for each game I have listed in my 'Wish list' or 'Want list', (and why the difference between 'wish' and 'want' anyway?) - that I DON'T want to be notified of any sales or auctions for that game, BGG is still sending me emails for all the games. I can do this already, by changing my 'notification preferences'.

However, if you look at the text under 'notification preferences', it says you can change your preferences for each game as well. I think this must be a bug, because I don't even have 'Gemblo' in any of my lists anymore, and I STILL got an email today for a 'Gemblo' game for sale.

This is fairly annoying. Is there any help for it?

Does it take a while for things to update in the system?

Sweet! I hope that one of the things you're considering is the problem where you get a notification for a thread and the particular post that triggered the notification is deleted before you see it, thus leaving the thread in a state where you've been sent a notification but haven't viewed it so you receive no more notifications. Not a very complicated engineering problem, but it'd be great to see this behavior changed.
