    Perhaps this may help you, Wolfgang.

    I don't use CP on 8F, although I understand why members would. I use a bookmarked "Subscriptions" page along with "New Posts" button and sometimes "Find Unanswered Threads" under the Forum Actions button to look for new posts for members to help and/or new entries in all threads. 8F always alerts me to PMs, VMs, and Reps notifications within the CP when logging on, so I figured the CP was limited so far as seeing all my prescribed threads unread or not. Of course the unread threads are highlighted on my Prescriptions page and have it set to show latest first. Also, seeing all the threads Iíve answered to reminds me of them and helps me with an overall view of my participation.

    When I joined here I started out using the Forum home page (naturally) and started answering posts. Of course when I answered posts email notifications where set up and enters that thread automatically into "Watched Threads". Then I discovered where "Watched Threads" hovering over "Forums" button at far upper left, then "All Watched Threads" on that page, and bookmarked that page. It's a lot like "Subscriptions" in 8F. It highlights unread threads and I can see all the rest I answered to. I could bookmark ďAll Watched ForumsĒ, but thatís too much of a hassle.

    I have all email notifications and alerts shut off. Itís peaceful when I enter here.

    Bill, I don't control that. The only real value of those likes is that you can see that someone read your post. Else it is just a number. Bips and stars are much more decorative, LOL.

    HG, that is too complicated for me. A scheme that needs 2 paragraphs to describe is beyond my capabilities, LOL.

    Yes I got a bit lost there as well, but in my case I just went into my CP and turned off Alerts and email notice and I don't get any alerts here, haven't done it yet over at the new site so they still show.

    Edit: Wolfgang I've just seen where I altered my alerts, if you click on the Alerts flag along the top you will see where it says Preferences, just click that and you can see there what you need to untick.
    Hope that helps you.

    Thanks Joan. I am actually not against the alerts. But they should only show new postings in 'your' threads. All those Likes and Trophy points stuff just bloats the alerts unnecessarily.

    I don't need the alerts here as it's still a new forum we're not overwhelmed by posts yet, so when I come here I can go through all active threads without getting tied up.

    Now the new forum is different, I've left the alerts there for now because there is a lot more activity to catch up with, some of which I don't need to visit.

    Yeah, this morning I had 14 alerts on the PCHF and several threads I read twice because I lost track on where I was on my list. It's just a pain because they don't disappear once you dealt with them.
