View Full Version : How Can I NOT Subscribe to a Thread?

12-03-2006, 07:56 PM
I've been here long enough that I should have long since figured this out. It's probably terribly obvious to everyone else.

Most often when I participate in a thread, I want to return to see other replies. However, sometimes I don't. What do I need to do differently to make it so that I do not subscribe to a particular thread as I post in it? Is it different in Quick Reply versus hitting the Post Reply button, perhaps possibly only in one or the other?

Yes, I know how to unsubscribe, but if you make a point of greeting newcomers, that's a lot of unsubscribing to do.

go to the middle of the page where it says Messaging & Notification
Set to "Do Not Subscribe"

When you do want to subscribe to a thread use the Thread Tools at the top of the thread to subscribe individually.

Hope that helps :)

I believe my line is, "Duh!"

Thanks. I hoped it would be easy, and it seems to be.

Learn something new every day! Oh, goodie, and there's still some day left, too.

Maryn, who will use it wisely, if that means watching TV
