    How do you opt out of receiving alerts when someone starts a new thread? I went to alert preferences but did not see this option.

    If you are watching a forum or a thread you get a new alert, that is located top of each thread

    When you go to your profile --> alert preferences, look at the menus on the left it shows Watched Forums and Watched Threads. You'll want to check over those.

    That was one of the first places I I tried, but there's not even an option about started threads. I would love to turn it off, it clogs up my actual alerts.

    I found them under Watched Forums (https://www.gatorcountry.com/swampgas/watched/forums) in your alert preferences --- you were set to watch three forums so I removed them for you.
