I'm currently subscribed to the General Kickstarter forum, but there's a lengthy discussion that keeps popping up in my subscription that I'd rather not see anymore. Is there a way to block one topic from a forum subscription?

Thanks.

Bruce

Click on arrow head by the name of the thread. there is a block option. Not quite immediate, the server has to cycle through whatever. But in half-hour or so that thread will be blocked.

If you know which thread you want to block, then you can do it from the subscription page.

I'll usually look at the first couple of posts, but when a thread gets tiresome, I block it while on the subscription page itself. You also have to mark it read to get it off the subscription page.

It is a !@#$%^ pain in the but that you have to click the red X to close the popup dialogue. How many actions am I going to select from such a small list of choices. I'd greatly prefer that after one choice that the popup closes. Guess this should be a bug report or a suggestion. soblue
