[Forum] How to disable notifications from a single thread?

I'm getting tons of notifications from a thread that I commented on once or twice, and I'd like to disable that. However, I don't want to disable this for all discussions, because there are some threads that I do want to get notified about. Is there a way to selectively "unsubscribe" from a particular thread?

"Notify me when people comment on discussions I've participated in."

This unfortunately disables notifications for all threads I've commented on, not just the one or two threads I'd like to mute.

Then again, I suppose I could combine this with starring the discussions I do want to be notified about (i.e. a whitelist instead of a blacklist). It's not what I had in mind, but this should suffice.

Thanks for your help, @Zenbane .

Click on the "Star" icon. If the star is filled, then you will get notifications. If it is hallow, then you won't.

You can also click on the "My Bookmarks" tab on the Right, to see everything you may have Starred.

What if the thread giving me notifications isn't starred/bookmarked i.e. a thread that I just commented on?

Up at the top right corner near your name, click on the Gear Icon and select "Preferences." Uncheck all the ones giving you grief.

The one you're looking for is, "Notify me when people comment on discussions I've participated in."

Any change on this other than to disable all notifications for the whole forum? I don't want to do this.

I just want to be able to unsubscribe from a single topic not everything - this is a pretty standard forum function in my experience.

Oculus uses very crappy and very basic forum software.
