Stop notifications for a given thread?
« on: February 11, 2012, 01:13:04 PM »
Near the top of the screen is a link to "Show new replies to your posts."  I like to use that feature, but I'd also like to stop watching certain forum threads.  Is that possible?  I can't find the option for it.

Click the Notify button again, and the feature will be disabled.

Ignore Topic is different from Notify I think.

Given the original question about turning off email notices, I think Ath is right.

More generally, if you go to your profile, in the Notifications and Emails section, you will find a list of all topics you are subscribed to receive notifications on, and you can disable them there.

(The Mark Thread -> Ignore feature Carol is talking about is to really ignore a topic so you don't even see it listed anymore, at least in the new topics lists).

Yup...  'Ignore Topic' is the one I wanted.  Thanks All!   :Thmbsup:

Just for anyone else reading this -- you can also ignore entire sections; see the ignore boards link in your profile.
