How do I leave thr forum.

I think that I have too many things on my plate and would like to leave but I dont really know how.Will go look and see if theres an escape route in the profile page but otherwise I havent a clue,show me the downsizer catflap so I can exit quietly.

Umm. Just don't open a downsizer window/tab in your browser. You can turn off notifications and so on in your profile.
Naomi

yep.just dont visit. I was away for almost 3 yrs but now i am back Smile

Sorry to hear that you wish to leave. There's a button to the left of the page that says 'log out', that is sufficient as far as I'm aware.

But you can't leave... we've got you now. There is no escape Mad
Mwah ha ha ha. Or other badly spelled maniacal laughter.

Pay no mind to HL, he's (mostly) harmless.

There's no real need to 'leave' leave, is there? Well, unless you wanted to stop yourself from posting I suppose, but even if you did that there's nothing other than your self-will to prevent you from lurking. Just log out & go for a bit of a stroll till you're ready to come back again. People often do you know!
Gervase

There's a button with an 'x' in it at the top of this window. Click that.

It's very easy to leave a forum, you just stop visiting it. Very Happy

Then the option is open should you wish to return. I came back too and realised I hadn't posted in about 3 years! (not that I 'left' exactly, I just didn't have the time for loads of different forums).

This is probably a more sensible question than some might think. If you are not that technical you may want to ensure that e-mail topic notifications stop arriving, and not be too sure how to stop that.

True, but if you're not posting then you don't get the notifications in any case.

Just do a good bit of inappropriate swearing - it works for me!

You do, believe me, you do!

I don't- I've left DS alone at times in the past and they tail off as your threads die down, unless you're getting the hundreds of PMs asking you to come back,then you get them but considering tiggy last posted at the beginning of October, I doubt they will get too many to be a problem.
Silas

Well, I 'left' for a short while and I was getting loads of them, I am sure they would eventually die down, but not being able or not wanting to respond is a tad frustrating. I think if people do 'leave', they should be given the opportunity of adjusting their profile settings to allow them to at least switch off the email notification facility.
Rob R

Yes
Jamanda

In your profile, you need to make sure the "Always notify me of replies:" button is turned off




Then you won't get set any emails.
Sally Too

I've never been sent emails.... (just the odd PM aimed at another Sally once in a wonder..... Laughing )

And I wander in and out of here a bit. Haven't had an email in 6 months or more I think.

That's because your profile is set like mine is in the picture. If you want emails set the button to yes.
Sally Too

OH NO! I don't WANT emails! Surprised

Just I thought that the default must be no-emails because I don't ever remember turning them off! Wink
madcat

What I was trying to find out was could I delete myself from the membership list and just slink quietly away through the gap in the downsizer hedge .It seems easy to sign up to forums but not to escape if you think you maybe should reduce the things you belong to.Just not visiting seems a bit wooly.Im not stomping off in a huff slamming the catflap behind me its just wanting to reduce the temptation to lurk on the internet when I should be making rag mats.
tahir

Good luck making rugs tiggy, I know what you mean.
Chez

Yes, I know what you mean, too!

There is a thread about blocking a website. You could do that.

Looks like I will just have to take a little working holiday and come back when Ive got a bit caught up with the job list.

Change the pass word but just hit random keys & then copy & paste it to confirm

Excellent idea! thumbright

Talking of notifications, my inbound email seems to be borked, so later on I'll probably get a barrow load of notifications Confused

It'd be nice to have a way of turning them all off. Save that from happening.
sean

You can turn them all off in your profile. I haven't had an email from downsizer ever.

Can you? I'll go and investimagate that, ta.
Midland Spinner

Best of both worlds: - turn off notifications generally but, if you particularly want to know when a specific topic is updated, you can tick the 'notify me when a reply is posted' box under the reply writing box.
That way you get emails about that topic, but not about the rest.

(Hopefully, one of the mods or other techie people will be along later to correct this if I'm wrong).
