Every time i post on a thread the "Im watching" box is checked. I am not checking this box. Why is this happening and how can i stop it?

The "watch this thread" box i mean.

Yes, it's happening to me too. (I'm on a PC, Win8, Firefox browser if the platform matteres.)

Oh gawd, enhancements hmm.

Never heard the rule, 'If it aint broken, don't fix it'? grin

Thanks purpledaisies I have unchecked it now in customise.

Now it has thrown off my colour themes for OP's and my posts and i can't see where to restore them!

The colours haven't disappeared as such, the option to have them at all has gone from customise.

What with the HUGE Facebook/Twitter/Google share boxes??

It's done the same to me. Frankly, I'm not interested enough to watch some of them!

This is not an improvement. It is an abomination.

I want two things. Both of which I had until today and neither of which are grabby, demanding things:

1. I want to choose when I watch a thread. I do not want to be opted in as the default. I realise that I can customise this option but the result of doing said customisation resulted in my second request. Namely:

2. I want my colours back.

Another thread Here

Definitely NOT an improvement in my view.
MN are being strangely quiet about it though, and haven't responded on the thread.

They aren't being strangely quiet, they have commented here

There are many threads about this non-improvement tonight.

MN has not responded to them all by any means.

Please stop this MN. It's dreadful.
