    Every thread I post in, Im automatically subscribed. I keep forgetting to unclick it when I post. Is there a way to change the automatic in my user panel and if so...where is it located?

    But I have to do that on each topic I reply on, right? There is no way to make it not automatically subscribe unless I choose to?

    I always forget to look when Im replying. Then when I go to my user panel, I have shitloads of threads I have to delete subscriptions too that I havent been back to.

    I don't remember how to do it, but I tried not having the automatic subscription thingee to. And there were a ton of threads I posted in that I couldn't remember where I posted and that became frustrating. So I prefer to subscribe automatically and then unsubscribe to the few I don't wish to return to.

    You can turn off email notifications though if that is a pain.

    I have the email notifications turned off, yes. But there is no section for not automatically subscribing with every post. Except in the thread youre posting in. I even went back in to edit to see if I could click it AFTER submitting...but alas, it was not there. So once you post, you have to go to your user panel and unsubscribe from there. :(

    If you wish to make posts that no one comments on or replies to, I suggest using the blog section of this forum instead of the message board section.

    Don't select 'no email', select 'do not subscribe'
    It's in the exact same drop-down menu

    usercp -> edit options -> subscription options ->? 'do not subscribe'
