Thread notifications, replies

Right now I am being automatically subscribed to threads just for posting in them. I canít find where you can set the default not to subscribe.

Is there any notification for quoted posts?

Are there notifications on the forum and not just email?

Iím usually perusing using the mobile version on the phone.

I have never used the phone app, but here's how I do it on my laptop computer:

1. On the horizontal bar above, click on "User CP".

2. On the panel on the left, under "Settings and Options", click on "Edit Options".

3. In the big section called "Messaging and Notification", go down to "Default Thread Subscription Mode". On the dropdown menu there, choose "Do Not Subscribe".

Hope this helps.

Happily retired since 2009, at age 61. Best years of my life by far!

This might be a good opportunity to point folks to a sticky close to the top of this forum which is thread dedicated to documenting the mechanics of the forum with 20 posts covering different items.

Post #9 is about customizing your account:

OP I have not found a way to do so, but there is probably something in the user CP. What I do is use the unsubscribe button at the top of the page for certain posts when they go off the rails as they do often, or I am not interested in replies but feel compelled to comment . Some I do want to get notifications on so I am not sure I would use it anyway.

Go to the 3 lines at the top right of your screen. Choose settings. Choose Push Notifications. Then you can disable all of them or open each one individually and choose to Enable, Disable, etc.
And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.- Desiderata by Max Ehrmann
