How does one unsubscribe from a specific forum? I'm not really interested in the "opponents wanted" forum as I'm already surrounded by opponents in real life. This doesn't seem to be addressed anywhere on the website.

Did you try going here:

to unsubscribe?

I've never subscribed before, so I don't know whether it works.

It doesn't ask you which one you wish to unsubscribe from. Or is that
impossible?

It's all one forum, it is not possible to subscribe/unsubscribe to particular sub-folders.

Brent.

The simplest way is to create a filter in your e-mail client. Just get it to filter anything with subject line "[Opponents Wanted]" into your e-mail trash.

Does this mean that players looking for opponents receive all the
developer posts?

If they are subscribed to the forum via the mailing list, yes.

If you look back at our long-running debate over how to set up the
forum, you'll find me complaining about this frequently and at great
length.

This could be solved by a little hacking on Mail2Forum, to make it
possible to attach more than one external list to a forum. I still
think this wouldn't be difficult to do, and I'm sure that the M2F
developers would appreciate the contribution.

You can see my discussion with the M2F devs here:

Well, out of 220 users we've got around 18 on the mailing list and most are part of the dev team anyway. I really do not see this becoming a huge problem!

So the two non-developers on the mailing list will just have to $#%@! un-subscribe if they do not want to see developer posts! :D

Or... it *might* be the reason there are only 18 using the mailing list...

It might be. Or they might be like me, and would much rather have a forum than a mailing list. :wink:

(I didn't know you could subscribe to a phpBB forum as a mailing list, and can't really see the point. But, I just never liked mailing lists in the first place.)

Sigh. That's what I'd argue.

At the very least, the opponents wanted list should be separate. I
doubt those people want to hear most of what goes on here. I really
don't know what's involved with the forums though.

On another note, the CSW VASSAL list appears to be largely inactive.
Is there a big divide between CSW readers and VASSAL?

Since I've never seen the point in web fora when you have nice civilized mailing lists, I'm very grateful to the guys for keeping both options!

Cheers,

I would read the lists solely on the web, but I'm not sure how it
knows which posts are new or not. It doesn't seem to know which ones
I have and have not read. I'd like something that keeps track of that
similar to CSW, which is why I stick with the mail forums.

I stop by ConSimWorld about once every five years, and leave it, frustrated, a half-hour later when I find they haven't done anything about the hopeless muddle that is their UI.
