Hi all,
I am quite happy to get the AT email notifications of the threads with which I am engaged. But sometimes when I am travelling a lot I prefer to cut back the notifications so as to not get 50 emails on return.
So I go into Users CP and the Watched Thread section. Then I click the little "Stop Watching" button for one of the threads which I no longer wish notification.
So far, fine. But.... after I do this, the page return is to the main Forums. Which means I have to click through the whole routine, including opening the list again to more than "Last Day" to do another one. When I am going away I generally wish to do this for 3 to 5 threads.

My suggestion: When a person is working in a page, say User's CP, can it be set that they return to the point where they started when they complete an action in case the wish to do a similar action. i.e. "Stop watching" another thread. I think that makes more sense that assuming they only wish to do one action and be put back into the main Forum page.

Personally, I'd like the option of a checkoff box for each thread, so you could check the threads you no longer want to watch, just as in an email box.

Could you maybe try it again, to see if your problem still occurs?

No. Rats. When I click on a thread that I want to stop watching, I get an intermediate page saying something like "You are no longer watching this thread' then it tosses me out into the Forum main page.

After some investigation by Solandia, turns out my firewall, Zone Alarm, was causing the problem. For future reference.
