    - load your messages screen
    - place checkmark next to message, pop-up window appears
    - In the "Other Actions" box, choose "Leave conversation"
    - a second pop-up appears. Mark choice you're presented (accept future messages or ignore future messages)
    - Submit

    Thanks Blur. I did a google search of ADV and did find the "Leave conversation" option. Sorry to take your time.

    I loved this, but now it's back to the way it was for me (I have to use the dropdown to get to watched threads). Anyone else?

    Thanks everyone for the site, new forum is generally working well for me.

    I noticed that yesterday. I'm guessing either some template files were replaced or an old backup was reinstalled. Baldy refuses to give me his cell number so I can text him to find out for sure :lol3

    Yes, it was nice. I suspect it'll be that way again sometime in the future. :thumb

    I think it's in the wrong place but...

    - Highlight the word or pic you want to add a link to
    - With word or pic highlighted, click the chainlink icon
    - Enter URL in pop-up window
    - Click 'Insert'

    DONE!

    G'day mods.

    Is it possible under Asylum Statistics to change from latest member to something ah, more in tune with the asylum.
    Maybe latest asylum seeker. :dunno

    I know it's nit piking but we have no members here, just inmates in an asylum.

    Thanks and safe travels.

    For a year since the upgrade I left much of the wording as the default because I'm busy lazy. But last night I started working through it and touched the home page a little and the new signup flow. I changed that to Newest Noob. Okay?

    Chris.

    I know you have way more important things to consider on a day to day basis an appreciate the effort you make here when time permits.
    As an ancient inmate in the asylum, I have seen it all come and go over the years and this place is and continues to be a special place on the WWW.

    Thank you.

    Disabled again? I love this feature since I do not look at several subforums!

    Just noticed that. All my ignored threads and forums are back. That was one of my favorite features.

    Causing performance issues again? They make a pill for that.
