Watching First Post acting like Tracked

Hi PostAdmin,

I currently have the “Lotteries” category set to inform me of new first posts. However, it is acting like I have the category set to track. Rather than just being notified of a first post only, I am receiving a count of all new posts next to the topic. I’ve included screenshots below.

Thank you for all your help!

Are you also receiving notifications for all posts done in all topics (as if they were tracked)? Or is it just the new posts count?

Yes, that’s correct.

Can you double check with some of those topics if you are not currently tracking them (even if you haven’t done it explicitly before)?
