Stop following question

I seem to recall that there used to be a button that let you stop following a question. The other day I looked for it and I can no longer find it.

Is that button still there, or is there some other way to stop getting lots of emails about a topic I'm no longer interested in?

There is an open bug at the moment for screen resolutions below a certain width as the "eye" disappears.

Okay, I've got it now.

The icon does appear in questions I'm following. But the one I wanted to unsubscribe from is a discussion to which I made 1 comment and now I keep getting multiple emails about it every day. There is no such icon in discussions, and I've noticed before that discussions generate a lot more comments than questions do.

I may have to put that discussion in my spam filter...

Hi hdhondt,

If you'd like to stop monitoring a discussion, slight pointed out the location of the monitor icon a few comments back: https://www.experts-exchange.com/discussions/219201/Stop-following-question.html#c2025534

As Martin pointed out, you can also update what kinds of notifications you get for new discussions on your groups in the group settings.

And finally, you can control all kinds of notifications and what types of alerts you receive from your Communication Settings! The discussion comment control is under the Network section. Between all those options, I hope you can avoid marking us as spam. :)
