Can't "unwatch" a thread

  1. Various subforums restrict usage of unwatch, like, edit and report - - the logic of which confounds me.
    regardless, at least the unwatch should be effective, anytime by anyone imo.

    That's strange indeed, can you give me an example?

    Congrat's to the busy beavers in the back room - -can't find any today.
    When posted multiple forums and posts per each were effected.

    Marked it [solved] and move on :)

    I think the issue comes up when you have posted and are watching a thread and it gets moved to a forum other than the news comments repository. It shouldn't be happening and it's most likely a core Xenforo bug we can't easily fix. However there's an update pending we'll take care of this weekend, hopefully that will help. If not, I'll report this as a bug.

    Yes, I think I moved it. I don't recall exactly but I think I moved it out of another member's thread to prevent hijacking.

    Thanks for adding that feedback @mailpup, that would confirm the pattern.
