When I edit a normal already existing page and "Save and Publish" no notification goes out to my members.
However when I modify an existing FAQ answer it generates an email. This is especially irritating as there is no preview button and in any case I should be able to make trivial changes without notifying my membership. I am not sure that even adding and FAQ entry should generate a notification.
I am getting frustrated with the whole notification policy for the system as emails are going out to the membership that have no relevance to them, I am concerned that some will start ignoring notifications from the site or else turning them off all together.
I think that the behavour of FAQ is a bug as it is inconsistant with the rest of the site. However I would also like to put in a feature request for a "Save and Publish without Notification" button when creating a normal page.
