    Watched threads

    Is there a way to quickly check ALL the watched threads that have built up over time, or must a person check them one at a time to mark off which to delete with the Delete Checked button?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    As far as I know, you must tick all check boxes individually. A good reason to keep the number of watched threads (and of post reminders) limited...

    Re: Watched threads

    I asked the question once too, Rudi. I was "concerned" that all those lists for all users might be chewing up a lot of server space and I wondered if they were ever culled automatically, with age. I think it was Claude who answered that each entry only occupies a handful of bytes and, no, they are not removed unless the user does so. I guess I'm just a neat-freak, 'cause every month or two I go in and delete all but the most recent ones. The only speedup I can find is that after unchecking the first one, I can tab-tab-space my way fairly quickly down the list <embarrassed grin>
