Every now and then I find a thread in one of the forums that receives a lot of posts but has absolutely zero interest to me.
When I pull up my "unread posts" page, I see the various threads (not counting the entire forums that I've already "hidden") including the thread that I have no interest in reading or following.
I see listed for this undesired thread, the ability to "skip" that thread.
I had assumed that this would stop offering me new unread posts to that thread when I return in the future yet it doesn't seem to work for me. When I click "skip," that thread does disappear. But the next time I visit and look at my "unread posts" thread, the thread I'm trying to skip returns.
Am I doing something wrong or am I not understanding the "skip" feature of the software running POI Factory's messaging?
Just curious--especially since there's a thread in this forum now that I really don't want to follow...
I use the skip all the time.. I belive that it works like "Mark all read" If a new message shows up, it will let you know its there. I just use skip aggain to mark it as read.
It does not hide the thread, just marks it as read.
Hope this helps
the only real way to not get certain threads is to go into your accout and then you can hide things.
Only thing wrong is it is a very narrow selection. In most cases all the threads are in open form and you can't block the ones you don't want to read with out blocking the whole thread. I use the skip all the time to reduce the threads that I want to read
when there is not interest for me.
I didn't know that you could do that but I will try it.
Given the way it behaves for me, I believe you're right and it really is a "mark all as read" rather than a "skip this thread forever" as I had hoped.
Not a big deal but I do wish it had been the other. At least the "hide forums" work for me since it saves me now from making a fool of myself as I've done in the past when I forget that I was in a Magellan/TomTom/Mac forum.
Yup. It marks the thread as read.
