Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere, but how do you stop the 'Watching Thead' option from automatically activating when you post in a thread?

Sorry, there isn't an option in the posting form to do this at the moment, but what you can do is

1) Post
2) When the thread loads with your new post, hit the 'Stop Watching' button at the top

Ok cool, thats what i'm doing Smiling

One other question, when i'm going in to some threads, its sometimes a few pages back from the end…. am I right in thinking its remembering where I read up to? I quite like that!

That's the idea, although I'm not totally sure if it's working properly for everyone, and it's quite tricky to test the cases where it isn't.

It should work for all threads that you have viewed at least once since the relaunch. So if you (or anyone else) thinks it's taking you to the wrong place, let me know!
