Please stop subscribing new accounts to a set of groups

It's really annoying, since you have to go in and manually unsubscribe from the groups that you don't like

    And as Halfloaf mentioned, how many accounts are you making? It doesn't take more than a minute to unsubscribe from every group once.

      Perhaps some sort of onboarding flow would eventually be appropriate, where you are given ability to peruse the menu options available or can dive straight in?

        Yeah, there's an issue for this: #667. There used to be an unsubscribe button for each group on the groups page but it was recently removed when that page was updated.

        So you’ll probably only have to do that once. Is it really that bothersome?

    I think most people would be confused by a workflow where they see content on the frontpage, create an account, and no longer see content.

      Uh, there's a reply button. You didn't use it so @ali will only know you replied by the mention in this comment or by coming back to this post. Also you can only edit the title after a few minutes...

      Also you can only edit the title after a few minutes and maybe after your account is a few days old.
