Stop following thread feature?
« on: October 13, 2010, 10:22:28 PM »
(Sorry, I did look, I thought there was a thread about this not all that long ago, but I went back to before I was registered, and couldn't find it)

Could the powers that be come up with any way for a poster to stop 'following' a thread? I mean, not have it show up in your 'new replies to your post' sort? (it's kinda making me sorry I ever responded to the 'babynames' thead at all, among others :D)

At the same time, a 'follow this thread' button that will show up without my having to make a useless 'pod', or 'posting for updates' post?

Just askin :)

when I get the nitification mail, it has on there both a link to the page and then a few lines under that is a click here if you no longer want notification.

otherwise ignore the notice and it will stop telling you about it.

I don't get email notification. I was refering to the "show new replies to your posts" link at the top of the page next to your username.

I read all the ones I want to check on then hit Mark All as Read for the rest. But I do wish there were a stop follow button.
No matter where you go, there you are...

If you click on the "show new replies to your posts" link, it will show all the posts you've ever responded to here which have new posts since you last checked. If you click on the tiny little 'new' button it will take you to the first new post you haven't read in that thread.

Wait, where is the 'mark all as read' button?

The tiny "new" button is at the end of every thread title. It is there if there are new replies to a thread. If you have read the thread and there have been no new replies, it won't be there.
