As designed  Alerts not cleared on unwatched threads?


Active member
Hey there!

I watched a thread, unwatched it again and there are still the alerts from the thread on my alert page.

Shouldn't they all get cleared?

Nah, that would be useless, it's not like the alerts there are disturbing the view of xenForo

I don't feel disturbed by those remaining alerts, I just thought this might be a bug.

It can also be intentional, in a way that alerts are stored in a different way or table and those alerts don't even know that I opted out because they are not connected. In this case it would be a lot harder to remove them versus leaving them where they are. Does it make sense? :D
