"Invasion" of other local forums

  • Hi, from time to time I get local forum information in "Unread" even if I already mark them as ignored.
    For example today I got a new thread from the Spanish in "Unread".
    Iirc it is since a few weeks.
    It is not a big problem, I have to open the thread and mark it as ignored again.
    Does anybody have the same problem?

    Cheers, mib

  • @mib2berlin I have also experienced this. I think this is happening:

    • You mark a local forum as ignored
    • Posts here are not shown in your feed
    • someone makes a post to a *sub-*forum of the one you ignored
    • You will see sub-forum posts unless you ignore that sub-forum as well

    I'm not sure what the intended behaviour is here, but for now the best thing to do is to manually ignore each sub-forum as well as the parent.

    It is also sometimes interesting to take a look at the localforums. In the Spanish for example there is today a user with a severe problem and apparently no one has listened to her since she first posted a few days ago about the problem of a corrupt installation that prevents her from using and updating Vivaldi , where I already tried to help, although I have not enough knowledge of the subject.

  • @mib2berlin I have also seen this. I believe it is caused by the creation of new sub-forums - "Bug Report", "Archives" etc.
    These new forums are being automatically set as "Watching".
    I just go through and mark as ignoring for the ones I am not interested in.

    And yeah, if a new subforum is being created somewhere, you have to ignore it specifically. As said in the other thread, we should be able to set all sub-forums to ignore from its main forum -- e.g. local forums. There is a button for this but it doesn't work as intended.

  • Thank you all for the information.
    I will do it step by step instead of going to ignore 40+ sub-forums.

    Cheers, mib
