How can I 'unfollow' certain forum threads, hub comments, or answers?

    When I look through my 'Hubtivity', there's all kinds of recent forum posts, hub comments, and answers that I had previously posted something in.  Some of these I'm no longer interested in, or the comment I made was just in passing.

    Is there a way of 'unfollowing' or no longer receiving Hubtivity notices on these particular topics?  If only just to save me some time rooting through 2 or 3 pages of Hubtivity.  Thanks.

      Have you tried using the Feed located on the toolbar near the top of your screen? That is customizable, and a very fast way of scrolling though hubtivity.

        Yes, once in a while. It also contains links to stuff that someone thought I might be interested in, but likely as not, I'm not.  Oh well...

      You can edit who you choose to follow, however it's not specific to certain people.  It's more general, like you can follow all your fans or none.

      Editing is in the feed section.

    I don't think so, unless you go back to your post within a few hours and delete it. that's one reason I contemplate whether I really want to post to certain threads.

      No - I've done that (not for that reason though), and the post still appears (remains) on my Hubtivity.

        really? I usually don't check my hubtivity except in the morning.

          Try it. And when I click on the link, to the post that has been deleted, the computer kind of goes mad ... it keeps going back and forth to the non-existent post. Maybe that's just my computer though ...

    you just answered a question for me, so you don't have hubtivity in the sandpit, i am jumping out..

      Sometimes I like to go back to a post I wrote in the Sandpit, but have to get back to it the long way around because it's not listed under my Hubtivity.

        timorousposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        If you go to the main Sandpit listings page (or any of the forum listings), at the top are 3 buttons marked 'all', 'your', and 'unanswered'.  If you click on 'your', you'll see only the threads you posted something in.

        If you want to go the last page of several thousand posts, you can either click on the name of the most recent hubber that posted a reply, or click on the title, then go to the bottom of the first page and click the highest number there.

        There ya go camlo...I just saved you some time. cool
        You're welcome.

          Oh, thank you, Timorous! I never noticed the 3 buttons marked 'all', 'your', and 'unanswered'. You certainly have saved me some time there!

      Aww...please don't unfollow me Kim sad 
      Besides,this isn't about fans or following hubbers, it's about reducing thread clutter.

      You know I'm only an email away...all you need to do is look, my dear.

      See you at the top of the stairs [take your shoes off first] wink
      kiss

    My online flirtation here on the hubs would have been innocent enough, just hide it. (why else would you want to delete something?)
