Just thought I'd point out that when a thread is removed from the forums and people had subscribed to it, there is no way to become unsubcribed at that point and the link in the "My Subscriptions" does nothing (which makes sense because it shouldn't go anywhere, but I believe confucius said that a link that doesn't work shouldn't exist).  I think you might want to include a quick little unsubcribe icon in a new column in the "My Subscriptions" list anyway - this would make multiple unsubscriptions easier (since most people would likely do unsubscriptions in bulk when they enter "cleanup" mode).

No real hurry, just thought I'd point it out.

Good idea.  I've noticed this too and it is kinda annoying to have a link that I can't remove over there.

Hi Shane (both of you),

Thank you for the feedback! As we use the forums mostly from our back-end we haven't noticed this bug. I imagine it is frustrating enough, so I am putting down a todo to not render at all links to messages from archived forums. I must agree Confucius has a point there...


Sincerely yours,

Not to be a pain or anything, but this still hasn't happened and now I've got 8-10 of these threads in my "My Subscriptions" list and I can't get rid of them.  I did notice when I look at my entire list of subscriptions that these threads aren't deleted - they have just been marked as private.  Again, if that is the case then you should be able to easily apply a filter so that the "private" threads don't get shown to the end users.  Muchos gracias!

...and while you're at it I've got another suggestion.

Since the default for creating / replying to a thread is to subscribe to it, it would be nice to have a way to do a "bulk unsubscribe" on the My Subscriptions page.  I just got done cleaning up my list (as well as I could without being able to touch the "private" ones) and it took quite a bit longer than it should have since the telerik site isn't exactly blazing fast.  I'll never complain about slow site speeds since there are a zillion factors - most of which are out of the hands of telerik, but still there are steps that could be taken to avoid constant postbacks and page-loads.

So, when you make the change for the "private" threads - go ahead and throw a checkbox column on the My Subscriptions page that will allow us to delete a whole bunch of subscriptions with one click....that would be just super!  Thanks and you guys rock!

Hello Shaun,

Thanks for bringing up the issue again. I want to apologize that nothing has been done so far to fix this problem, but our webteam has been busy working on other website enhancements in the past few months.

Both of your suggestions really make sense and I am sure all of our clients will be happy to see them implemented, so I hope soon we'll be able to add the option to delete threads from "my subscriptions".

Greetings,
Natalie Farah
