    At the top right you have thread tools and can unsubscribe from the discussion.

    This does not prevent the thread from appearing for didds.

    The easiest way to ignore a thread is to.... umm... just ignore it.

    Ive checked that and Im not subscribed in order to unsubscribe... and being unsubscribed doesnt mean the thread doesnt show every time there is an update 9see below)

    The options I have are

    show printable version
    email this page
    subscribe to the thread...

    generally speaking i guess my "problem" is that I use typically the forum-new posts option to find updated etc posts to read, rather than wade through each forum section one by one.

    So an update to the chiefs thread shows up - and will always show up- in new posts until I actually open it. So even if I then do nothing more it still needs direct addressing as a "scroll on by" doesn't eventually over time work, as all threads that get updated that I am ignoring just stay in the "new posts" section.

    However, as there is no simple method (or even a hard one! LOL) to set a thread to "never tell me there's an update" Ill obviously continue to have to enter the thread and then leave it again.

    No biggy.

    Uh, no.

    When I log on, I go to "What's New", then "New Posts"
    My view then is by thread, not by post. That way I just select the threads I want to read.

    yes - i may have been ambiguous. that is what i see ie by thread. if I do not visit that thread (eg becasue I am ignoring it) it remains in "new posts" for ever potentially. So whilst I can ignore it potentially over time I could jhave multiple threads I am "passing over" - but they still show under new threads. eventually potentially I reach a scituation of wood for the trees in that I am now have to look at the threads to find the ones i am interested in. its easier to not have the "ignored thread" showing so i diont get wood for trees. But the only way to do that is to actually visit the thread, even it I then immedaitaely return to new posts etc etc

    Any threads started by Dickie E I just ignore - that works for me.

    Doesn’t work on this update of the software. Another forum I frequently visit has the latest update and adding someone to your ignore list means threads they started become invisible to you. No notifications, can’t see it when you visit that sub forum, etc. Currently the ignored member’s posts are hidden, but you can click on them to view. Discussions started by them are still notified and visible.

    PS to ignore Dickie isn’t possible with the software, only willpower works.
    Sorry Dickie E is a moderator/admin and you are not allowed to ignore him or her.
