Need an IGNORE ALL COMMENTS link

chess_kebabs

Dear staff,

We have an 'IGNORE ALL' link provided for 'Alerts', to remove all 'Group Activity' 'Team Match Games'  and 'Chess Games' alerts that appear on our profile pages but not one for ''Comments". It takes too much time to click on tracked forums and turn the tracking off and often we have forums we don't want to read/comment for the time being or possibly not anymore. We end up with a page of so many forum alerts for new comments and have to sift through them to find the vote chess game comments and any other forums most interested in reading/commenting on. 

Is it possible to please provide an IGNORE ALL link for Comments too?

Many thanks,

Babs :)

Hmmm, we already have that.

And yes, I just found out about it few days ago, and I was, WHAAAAAAA???? How did I not see that before?

chess_kebabs

that IGNORE ALL Streps only gets rid of the games and group activity alerts until a new game or group activity pops up.. but it only 'temporarily' hides the comments, it doesn't remove them..  when a new comment is made ALL  the comments pop back up AGAIN on profile so AGAIN you have to sift through all of them to see which comment was new..

You can turn it off via your privacy settings, but unfortunately you'll also have to manually untrack any threads that got tracking turned on this way.  Turning that on by default when they rolled it out was a bit of a blunder.

Not following you Grobe.

You never know my time RR... it's 12.45am here now..

@Grobe... but as I mentioned in my post, I don't want to permanently stop getting alerts for new comments from ALL the forums/games I am in.. I  just want to keep viewing the ones that I'm still interested in and keep ignoring those I'm not.. without having to manually turn each one off.. so that after I hit IGNORE ALL, when a NEW comment is made in any of the forums it only brings up that forum on my profile and I can choose whether to hit IGNORE ALL again or view it.

Just when you comment in a forum uncheck "tracking Comments" option. I know that you have to do it one by one, but I don't know if maybe mark all forum topics as READ will do what you want?

Sure, but RainbowRising does.  My post was in response to him. 

chess_kebabs

how do you mark all forums here,  including vote chess games new comments, as read Streps?

you left  no comment adofg ?

 we don't already have it for "new comments" for alerts for forums.. we only have an ignore all button for games and group notes, and new forums created alerts..

I also have lot many comments/alerts all the time. But, what I do, I only see those which I want to see now! Rests quietly stay there without bothering me and keep updating with # of comments received in that forum.
