Okay, not really... But still. Close enough!



Hoping someone can help me understand.



I clicked on the thread "Your favorite web forums/pages besides Veggie Boards?" one day, and (apparently) while I was midway through a post, the thread was merged with another. So when I hit post, my post disappeared into the cyber abyss, and didn't get posted in EITHER thread.



So I went ahead to the other thread (Here, called "What are your favorite web sites?") and re-typed and posted my post there.



And all that was well and good, BUT...



Now the thread "Your favorite web forums/pages besides Veggie Boards?" will NOT leave my subscribed threads list in my User CP.



It is not bold, like the other new threads, it is regular text. (I belong to other forums that leave up read New Posts and read Subscribed Posts in your list even after you've read them and the unread are bold like ours, and the read ones are like the thread stuck in my CP, regular).



And even when I hit "Unsubscribe" it goes through the process of taking me to that "Your subscription has been removed" page, then redirects me to my User CP... And the thread is STILL there! Log out, and back in... Still there.



It won't leave me alone!!!



Help?



(I'm wondering if I have to unsubscribe to the OTHER thread (which I may have done, I can't remember)... But in case I haven't, forgive my ignorance, I don't know how. Since this board clears out threads that have been read from my User CP, even if I'm still subscribed... And no one has posted in there since the 17th and even if I post there, it won't pop up in my subscribed threads so someone else would have to in order for me to see it... Hrm... I dunno...)

It doesn't clear out threads you're subscribed to. They just don't pop up in the "home page" (lack of a better word) if they're not unread. Go to "list all subscriptions" on the left hand side bar.

Oh, thanks, that's handy to know! If only I could have been able to, you know, read and figure that out myself... *ashamed*



So... Now I know I am not still subscribed to the other thread.



So that can't even be it! Darnit...



It's... Still... Stalking... Meeeeee!

So it's linking to a thread that no longer exists? Do you have a link?

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like in my User CP. It's ALWAYS at the bottom of my subscribed threads and marks itself as unread in the tally at the top (where it says New Subscribed Threads: (11) or whatever), despite appearing "read" because it's in non-bold.

The link it links to is this:



https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...d.php?t=107906



Which goes to the thread it was merged with. Which I am not subscribed to.



And despite multiple attempts to unsubscribe from the one in my User CP, it will not go away.
