Is there a way to not automically be subcribed to every reply?

Hey everyone,

Quick question. Is there a way that I can select which threads I want to subscribe to / watch? I'm not interested in getting an email for everything that I reply to (off-topic stuff, etc.).

I know there are settings for email and a place to go in Preferences where I can see everything I'm watching, but I little tool at the bottom (check box) would be nice when I'm replying to already open threads. I know I can check the boxes at the bottom of the post when you start a new one.

Thanks,
Ki||@

Go into your settings and it has a thread subscribe part in there you can uncheck the threads like that:)

Go to the top of the page where you just posted and where it says "Unwatch Thread" click it to unsubscribe.

I get those emails as well. I just take five seconds to go down the line and delete them all so it's no biggy. I know it's simple to unfollow threads, but I do think the default setting (for getting emails at least) should be that you aren't following them automatically just because you make a comment, not by default you are unless you take action not to.

You don't even have to do that.

Before you post just untick right there.

That's my point. I always forget to do that. I like to "watch threads" that I'm participating in, but don't need to get emails for every thread, so instead of the second box being checked by default and having to remember to uncheck it, it would be better to have it unchecked by default, and you would then have to manually check it if you want emails, because honestly, who wants emails anyway?

That only shows when you are using the "Reply" option to someones post. If you just post to the thread that option does not show.

Thanks but those options don't distinguish between getting an alert up there with that little flag icon, which I depend on, and getting alerts by email, which I could skip altogether.
I use the Tapatalk app that is a lot easier to load your personal preferences..its great for posting pics too..just my 2 cents worth..lol
