(Apologies if I've located this in the wrong part of the forum, it seemed as if this was the most likely home for this sort of 'technical' issue but I may have missed something.)
So... this has bugged me from time to time ever since I started on the site.
We have that lovely link that says "Show new replies to your posts", yes?
But it's not the case that every single post ever made to a thread after I posted on it is a 'reply to my post'. Some threads I might post on once, or twice, but not actually be interested in further additions to the thread 2 years down the track.
So there must, surely, be a way of saying to the system, 'actually, I'm not interested in that thread any more, thanks, don't show it to me as a thread I will be particularly interested in'.
I just haven't found it yet.
The alternative is that the list of threads I see when clicking "Show new replies to your posts" just grows and grows and grows and I have no means of pruning it. That notion has actually discouraged me, at times, from adding to a thread when it's of short-term interest but not long-term interest.
