Hi all,

Over the last couple of days I've started to receive e-mailed notices of new postings on threads on which I've not posted.  The most recent notices were for a thread (Moving to Wellington) I wasn't aware even existed - at least, not until I got the e-mail.

I don't recall changing any of my settings.

A quick scan of this forum doesn't show a discussion of the problem.

Any (printable) advice is welcome.

Have you managed to accidentally hit 'Auto Watch' in the Off Topic sub forum by any chance?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Knowing how I accidentally hit all kinds of links when using my iPad, I thought the answer might be "Yes".  But when I visited the forum just now, Auto Watch was not active. 

I tested it: clicked Auto Watch; the button changed to "Stop Auto Watch".  I clicked it again; it returned to "Auto Watch".

Similarly, I repeated the test on Watch Forum, with the same result.

I will look at records but would say it was in Auto Watch.

If you go to your profile you can see a link to manage all auto watch forums from one page.

I did check the page Your profile > [Manage my forum watch list], and the list of Watched forums >>  was (and remains) empty.  Is there another page I need to be checking?

I had a look at the records and your account had an Auto Watch on that forum, therefore a "subscription" record was created immediately after the topic was created.

You can unsubscribe from this topic and you won't receive anything else. You already removed the Auto Watch from that subforum according to you (I haven't checekd but trust that page status you mentioned).

I don't recall having ever set Auto Watch, but I could have done so by accident, especially when using my iPad.  Thanks for your time investigating this.
