Unsubscribe from a thread

Is there any chance that we could have this plugin installed on the site to enable us to unsubscribe from a specific thread?

It seems that once you make a comment, you are forever subscribed to that thread and doomed to receive notifications for all eternity. Under normal circumstances, that would be ok (and useful) but with threads that are ongoing for years, you get swamped with notifications from it because you made a single comment weeks/months/years ago.

    If you wanna volunteer to be a DRG Admin, I'd happily let you do that and perhaps fix a few other things that are beyond my technical expertise.  ;)  

    FWIW, I don't get any notifications, so I think that's just an existing preference setting. But being able to ignore certain threads would be good.

    I threw me guitar out. Why bother? Why bother? Use it as a coffee table. Because I can't play it like that.

    There’s a setting for that, I think. I don’t get notifications either. Let me check on my computer later today and I’ll let you know.

    I don't think I'd be much use as an admin - I don't seem to have much/any free time these days :/

    But maybe there is an existing setting that will work as you said.

    Thanks! Just looking at the notification preferences, I see you can switch off notifications for threads that you've participated in, but also separately receive notifications for something that you bookmark. So it could work to simply bookmark the specific threads you want and the rest will be ignored. I suppose that could work.

  • Yeah, there's a setting for that here in your user section where you can click it off.

    Yeah, I have not gotten notifications from this site for well over 10 years.
