    Unsubscribe a thread

    In both a thread I started and a thread I participated, there is no "unsubscribe from this thread" option.
    The only way is to wait for an email reply, then at the end of the email there is a link to unsubscribe.
    Is that the only way to unsubscribe in this forum ?

    Thank you.

    I was used to unsubscribe by clicking at the Thread Tool.
    Old habit.

    Plenty of help in the Lounge FAQ's, though they may not all be current (and Mods see a slightly different set of options, etc. so it's difficult for us to be certain), the ones that mostly relate to everyday Lounge usage are here and more are linked from the FAQ that's linked at the top of the page.

    Once your topic has been brought to a satisfactory conclusion, you can use the Thread Tools to mark it as Solved - it might help others with similar issues to find a possible fix.

    Thank you.


    Speaking of " mark it as Solved"................

    There should be a prominent "Mark as Solved" button in each thread so that the OP can click it conveniently.

    Even in other forum sites where the "mark as solved" option is in plain sight, the OPs still do not have the habit of clicking it. We have to remind them to do so.

    Hiding it under Thread Tools is a bad setup.
    How many solved threads being marked as Solved in these forums. Rarely.
    The reason is obvious.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll get the owners to re-write the Lounge software for you. Anything else needs changing?

    Hostility and sarcasm are apparent.

    I am just trying to suggest in good faith hoping the forums will flourish.
    If that is considered "out of line", I apologize and I shall never make comment of such topic anymore.

    Unfortunately, we have no control over the physical appearance of the Lounge. It is under complete control of the owners. We have not had any contact with them for a long time and even then their response was very uneven.
