Default Re: Auto post, no pre-message..

Going off topic, but to one that is sort of allied, a while back, when I clicked "Unsubscribe from this thread" it worked, now it doesn't, consequently I get an ever growing number of messages from threads that I don't want, can I ask why it isn't working, & can it be fixed?

Go into your User CP, and Subscribed Threads and you should be able to unsubscribe there.

I've never saw that happen with AJAX. In case your not really understanding, it might happen when people post and it automatically refreshes or whatever and it posts but on most of the newer vBulletin forums when you post on quick reply it comes up posting or something and then it just adds that to the bottom of the page, unless its time to move to a new page, in which case it would refresh normally.

Edit: What a surprise, timeout. Spent 2 minutes trying to get my post to go through and it went through the first time without telling me and I accidently posted it again.

Odd that, perhaps David can help, when I clicked "list subscribed threads" there were hundreds, do me a favour, you do the same, & let me know how many you have, thanks

Wait, do you automatically subscribe to all threads you post in? If you do, you can disable that in your options. I just subscribe to ones I choose myself, but umm... I have 51 threads.

I've just clicked "do not subscribe", will that do, or is that too limiting do you think?
