Title: How to "unsubscribe" from forum threads?
Post by: Distelzombie on April 26, 2018, 02:26:17 am
This is the best sub section I could find for this thread. It's not really something for "General Chat" (not electronic specific or a conversation at all/no chat), and nothing for the other section either.
 Please don't ridicule me. :)

So, how to "unsubscribe" from forum threads that appear in your "Show new replies to your posts." list? There's a "notify" button, that one is always off until I click it. Other fora have a separate "Unsubscribe" button for this.

There is no way to stop seeing new replies to your post, unfortunately SMF doesn't support it. The "Notify" button is if you want to be emailed about updates to a thread.

I could theoretically delete my posts, couldn't I? I guess that is bad behavior. I'd say so myself.

You could but it makes the threads unreadable by others and may be frowned upon.

Right now we are still in bug fix mode from moving to the new server cluster, once things settle I will see if there is something we can do about it.

You can however enable 'Ignore Topic' then never see that topic again anywhere except buried deep in your profile.  See https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/forum-update-new-ignore-topics-feature/ (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/forum-update-new-ignore-topics-feature/)

As requested by Dave, please use wisely i.e. (IMHO) only on topics that go on and on and on and on . . . .  or severely tempt you to reply with stuff that would be better not said.

Also, occasionally I check my (short) list of ignored topics to see if any are inactive enough that I can drop them from the list.
