You're probably still subscribed to the forum, and your subscription settings are set to notify on all messages. It's an annoying default.

Actually, it's a Guild forum and I'm not subscribed to it either.

It looks like you are the OP for that thread. Check special subscriptions in your preferences. If replies is set to Yes. I don't think you will be able to unsubscribe from these notifications without setting it to no.

Weird. There are other threads that I have started that I am not subscribed to anymore and don't get notifications.

This is still happening. I just got notifications for 3 other threads today that I am not subscribed to. The most recent one was: Availability?

You were notified of the "Availability" thread because you were the creator of the thread. The fact that you deleted your first post will not change that.

You were notified of the PnP thread because you are subscribed to the publisher of the game, Small Box Games, including the publisher's "member items".

If you don't want to be notified of a thread that you created, you should block the thread, not delete your post.

So even if I'm not subscribed to a thread that I create, I still get notified? And all threads posted to games of a publish will create a notification because I am subscribed to the publisher even if I'm not subscribed to the game? Bizarre.

You can customize that in subscription settings for your subscription to the publisher. Click the down arrow next to Unsubscribe, choose Edit Subscription, change "Member Items" to No, and save.

What curt said is correct. Also, you can set in your preferences whether you want to receive notification for all content you create--it is like an additional special subscription.
