Yes I knew somebody was going to put that as I said originally.

I would like to understand the logic but never mind.

Unnotify is a completely separate process  from the online Unread, New replies and Ignore.

Yes I know that but once I have used the 'unnotify' function so that I don't keep getting messages in my email inbox that someone else has posted to the thread in which I had previously been interested does it also prevent it from appearing in the new replies listing too.  And if the answer to this is yes then I am presuming that it will therefore appear in the unread topics listing unless the thread is closed to me forever more?

Anyway call it a day now - I hadn't realised my original query would necessitate so much typing.

As a moderator, I am asked to get involved in lots of topics for which I have no further interest after, say for example, correcting a typo or moving a topic to another board. Trystan has set the system up so that moderators can carry on keeping an eye on a topic they have become involved in indirectly.

However, on the whole, I no longer have an interest so chose then to 'un-notify' from the topic.

I then don't get any further email notifications for that topic nor do they appear under the 'new replies' button.

However, they do continue to be under the 'unread posts' button should my interest for the topic occur later.

How does the distinction between unread and new work regarding threads on which you have posted previously but have subsequently marked as 'unnotify'.  Do they still appear as new as you have posted at some point or is the system now capable of ignoring them and so they just appear in unread?

ANY post you make or if you answer another post, when anyone else replies be it 1 day, 1 month or 1 year later after you last read it will show in 'new replies' which is really useful as only the other day someone replied to an old question of mine which alerted me
