I’ve noticed as a New Member that I’m able to post in Member-specific categories (ie #platform-feedback)—at least I thought, but the system composes a message to
Community Post Approval.
But the problem with this is that every category and subcategory that can be read by New Members, but can only be posted by Members, will notify you for each post if you have that category set to
Watching First Post; according to my hypothesis.
To demonstrate, I’ve set each subcategory from #resources to
Watching First Post so I can get notified on new content posted by the community. However, I continuously receive notifications from topics in #bulletin-board. After examining, I’ve found that every notification I’ve received for almost a month from #bulletin-board had at least one edit.
My guess suggests that once choosing a posting-specifc-to-Members category, the system sends the targeted topic to the targeted category. Immediately after, it checks the
Trust Level of the post composer and then edits the post category. This would lead me to click on the notification leading to a #bulletin-board post.

This is inconvenient and urges me to configure my settings. If this was resolved, my problems would be solved.
