Is there a way to "detach" oneself from a thread?

austinbw11

There are certain popular ongoing threads that I have commented on that I no longer am interested in.  Obviously the notifications keep coming though, each time someone adds a new comment to the thread.  Is there a way to stop the notifications?

 

ETA: you know like, on a thread by thread basis, not having to disable thread notifications altogether.

I advise you to only post in unpopular threads.

Pretty sure you unfollow it, I'm on mobile so I wouldn't know

  Go to the thread in question and delete all your comments.  Sure, that will make a mess of things in terms of the timeline and the continuity but who cares?.....its just a thread.  Think of it as cleaning your carbon footprint from the planet.happy.png

There's a Follow tick box at the bottom of each thread which you can unlock.

Ah, I see it.  Very good.  Thanks much

No worries. You can also use it to follow a thread you haven't commented on.

I have never followed a thread.

I can't follow this one either.

Sure: pthread_detach().

When you post in a thread, the Follow checkbox also gets ticked.

It means you automatically start following a thread that you post a reply in. You can always unfollow it as usual, of course.
