Tracking topics you did not post to?

I just logged in and saw a couple of ‘unread’ topics. The weird thing was, these topics were set to “Tracking” with the reason, “because you posted to this topic”, but these were topics I had NOT posted to, in fact, I had not ever even opened them.

What’s up with the ghost tracking?


I have also noticed this, reason we inherit:

  • I have a tracked topic (example “stable update”)
  • a moderator extracts some posts from this topic for create a new topic “screen bug since last update”: I automatically follow also this new topic

Ah, that would be an explanation. I don’t find this mechanism very useful on the forum though…

Hmmmm…subscribed-topic-based targeted ads?


Now you can too with the power of FLEXTAPE!!!
