how does one change the theme? I hate black text on white background.

At the moment, all I have is the default theme. I am not wild about it either. I prefer a more toned down color scheme, sort of between this one and the popular dark themes. Different themes are on the list. I will probably have to buy them as there aren't many decent free themes. I just haven't had time to work on that since I have been so busy trying to get every thing settled with the change over.

I had instant email notification for an old thread. When I responded to a new thread, there was no opt out option. When I went to "watched" to modify my notifications, I chose delete the email option I was only given the choice of deleting all. Why can't I keep my old email notification active. I have a calendar option but that is not what I want.

If you want to change your status for a single thread, you can view that thread, then click on the watch/unwatch in the upper right corner of the thread.

If you want to change it for multiple threads at once, click on the Watched Threads, then look over on the right side of each thread title where it shows replies/views. Just to the left of that there is a small open box that you can check. This lets you select multiple threads at one time. Once you check the threads you want to change, scroll to the bottom of the thread list and look in the bottom right corner. Here you can make changes to all the threads you selected.

The red checks I added so you could see the boxes I was referring to.

Watch and Unwatch are about notifications. I was looking to ignore threads like the old Socialism thread. I just didn't want to see it again and was able to ignore it under thread tools. I can't seem to find anything similar. Scott shut down an OT thread recently that I would have ignored.
