How do I end a Linuxquestions thread.


Hi:
How do I signal linuxquestions.org I've no further interest
in one of my treads? I've read LQ linux tutorial but haven't
found anything to the point.

Also, what's the meaning of 'Thanked: xx' in the left margin,
when I'm reading a post, among the member's data?

Thank you for your time. Regards.

If you no longer have any interest in a thread, unsubscribe from it via your user control panel - aka My LQ. The thanked bits are where a user has provided a good answer or given good info and someone has clicked the blue thumbs up icon in their post.

This has been moved to LQ Suggestions & Feedback as it's a question about LQ.

If you started a thread it's nice if you say that it helped and the outcome.

It's also nice if a post was helpful to hit the thank icon on the post, but this seems to be just kudos

although kudos is good

Many threads go on for a long time without the original author.....

Grateful about the information provided. As to the unsubscribe
thing, I'm in the control panel and see my last thread under
'New subscribed threads: (1)' with a link to 'Unsubscribe'.
Obviously, this, to unsubscribe the thread being shown. Whereas
on the left and under 'Your control panel', I have the headings
'Your profile', Networking and so on 'till 'Projects'. I don't
see any of these will do. So the question remains open.
Thank you for your time. Regards.

Go to my LQ and under the "Subscribed Threads" sub heading in the left hand bar click on "List Subscriptions"

You should get a big list of all your threads with a check box on the right. Tick all items you no longer want to subscribe to and scroll to the bottom of the list.

A drop down box marked "Selected Threads : [Move to folder]" should be there click on it and select Delete Subscription. then click on the Go button next to it.

You can also manage threads into folders ans set how often email notification occurs.

Alternatively, in the thread toolbar at the top, you can click on "Thread Tools" and select "Unsubscribe from this thread" in the drop-down menu.

Cheers
