Possible to disable superfluous notifications?

Just started posting here and I got a notification (or two?):

Earned ‘Basic’
hal Thanks for spending time with us

I prefer not to receive these notifications designed to attract attention and “boost engagement” without representing any real event. Can I disable these while still being notified when real users do things like post on a topic I started? Can’t believe anyone would accept a forum software with stupid bullshit like this, yet here we are.

That was already checked when I went there, so either it was already set and didn’t work or the setting changed without my doing. We’ll see if I get any more…
