    how do I not subscribe to htread when posting

    How do I not subscribe to the thread when I post on it? Checked my settings and subscriptions both, but no joy.
    I continually get emails about new posts, but since I generally check the site every day I'd rather not get them. Going in and deleting the subscription is getting to be a PITA.

    Click settings in the top right corner next to "my profile"
    Then click on "General Settings" under My Account
    About the third one down is e mail notifications. "Default Thread Subscription Mode"
    Click "Through control panel only" Then you'll be subscribed and can look back on the threads you've once chatted about, but you'll avoid the e mail notifications.

    Hope this helps.

    In the upper right hand corner of the forums when logged in go to "settings" and then to "general settings" in the left column. Under Messaging and Notification, you can change "instantly by email" to "do not subscribe". Save that, and you should be good to go!

    Went for the do not subscribe.
    I'm definitely computer / website challenged.
    Just glad someone here knows how to do this stuff & doesn't mind helping.
    Thanks!

    Just got another email notification to a subscribed thread! Arghhh!
    Went back to website Q&A forum and realized that there's a sticky about this.
    Reading through it, I see that you still have to go back and unsubscribe to any subscribed threads, even after clicking the do not subscribe option.
    Did it, we'll see if that does the trick.

    Yes, the switch you made is for subscriptions AFTER you made the change.

    At the bottom of the email, is are some unsubscribe instructions that look like this. You can just click the link to unsubscribe from the one thread, or all threads.

    Unsubscription information:
    To unsubscribe from this thread, please visit this page:

    To unsubscribe from ALL threads, please visit this page:

    If you unsubscribe doesn't that make it really hard sometimes to go back and find old threads you were once apart of?
    Doesn't the way I described above keep you subscribed but stop all the pesky e mails?

    The way I handle this is I tell my email system (gmail in this case) to move messages of a certain type (like topic replies from supercub.org) to a folder/label that I can always look at later when I have time. It does not sit in my inbox, it just sits in a spot I can look at. Then I can easily delete them when I want to also.

    This is called "filtering" in most mail systems.

    I don't worry about going back, once the thread goes inactive there's usually enough new stuff to keep me occupied. I can always google old topics and find them without much trouble. Or just start a new thread and get the dialogue going again.
