I have 250 threads on I'm Watching. Deleting them is painfully slow, tick box next to usually very long thread, click on remove, wait 10 seconds for this to happen, etc etc.
Is there a quick way to remove them? Is it possible to select all and Delete?

You can scroll down and tick them all and then click remove once and they all go.

Still laborious for 250!

It's annoying that threads go on TIW when you post as well as TIO.

There was a lot moaning when it changed but seems we're stuck with it.

You can untick 'watch this thread' just below the message box, but I always forget.

It means 'Watch this Thread' is a waste of server space as I cannot be the only one whose list is blocked as it's reached 250 and removing is too tedious.
MN there should be an option to opt out of having the 'Watch this thread', under the post message box, always ticked.
If there is an option to detick this box for every thread where is it hidden?

Hi SSargassoSea - if you go into your customise, you should have the option to do this. It's labelled "Automatically watch:" and then you can un-tick "Threads I post on".

Funnily enough it wasn't ticked just now when I checked, only Threads I started.

Perhaps I'd changed it previously and not clicked on SAVE.

I have clicked on SAVE now so hopefully that is fixed.

Thankyou for the reminder info above.
