Deleting threads

Postby zudorf » Sat Apr 06, 2013 4:29 pm

Under "view your posts", how can I delete some of the threads I no longer want to follow?

"View your posts" returns the results of a search for posts made by you, it's not a subscription list.

Well, it also lists any posts I've posted a reply to. I was just wondering if I could delete some of the old ones and keep my list clean.

Yeah, that's exactly what Apeiron was saying. Not just topics. All posts--including replies.

I don't believe you have the permissions necessary to delete your own posts. Maybe you could just NOT look at that list. ;)

At the bottom of each thread in which you have participated, click the "unsubscribe" button.

Aha! Just like getting rid of junk email. I get it now. You da man, shooter!

Well crap, that doesn't work. All I see is "subscribe topic" with a checked box. You can't uncheck the box. When you click on it, it says you are now subscribed to that topic and changes to "unsubscribe topic" and a box with an x in it. Oh well, guess I'll do like Joe said and ignore most of the list. Just making sure I'm not eating more than my share of bandwidth or memory or other computer geek thingy.

I was under the impression you were referring to threads to which you had replied. In that case you become subscribed to from which you can unsubscribe.

On some boards, replying to a topic (or creating one) will automatically subscribe you to that topic. That feature is set as "on" or "off" by default, by the board's administrator. Regardless which is the default, you can override the default in your own user profile. You can also override it on a topic by topic basis by selecting "subscribe" or "unsubscribe) for that topic.

If everyone were allowed to delete their old posts, chaos would ensue. ;) There would be answers without questions, and topics would just not make sense. Plus, one of the great benefits of a forum is that others can learn from your experience before they ask their question.

I do we all (myself included) would remember to put "SOLVED" or "RESOLVED", or "FIXED" in the subject line whenever a problem gets fixed. That helps people who are searching for an answer to similar problems.

I'm not trying to erase my posts. I'm trying to erase the tread from my list when I click "View your posts". Kind of like erasing e-mail after I read it so I don't have a million e-mails in my inbox. But I'm beginning to understand that the list of posts isn't the same as my inbox for e-mail. So, never mind. As I said, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't tying up memory of something by having such a long list of posts assigned to my user name. I'm old and don't understand computers much. :lol:

It seems like if I get an email regarding a new post, and I do not open the link, I no longer get updates for that thread.
