    Hi,

    I recently replied to a review, and then naturally I wanted to unwatch the review comments section so I do not recieve any more uneccessary alerts.
    However I couldn't actually see any 'unwatch review' button or anything of the sort. I also tried http://gbatemp.net/review/gpd-win-handheld-pc-gaming-console.616/watch but I only recieve a "This action is available via POST only" message...

    Is there just no way to unwatch the comments in reviews yet?

    I mean, a way to do it would be to wait for the next reply and then don't check out the review anymore. Because there was one notification you didn't check, the others won't show.

    Although that's a good idea, it will just be an inconvenience if I ever decide I want to visit and/or re-read the review again.

    but if I unwatch this thread, and then come back to it. It will automatically rewatch it for me.

    What are you talking about? That isn't true. If you unwatch a thread, you will completely stop recieving alerts for replies to that thread, regardless of whether you come back to that page or not. Same principle for blog entries.
    (I mean, if you just clicked 'unwatch thread' on a thread, came back to it, and it automatically watches it again just like you said, what would be the whole point of the unwatch thread function in the first place...?)

    Alright.

    I'm going to unwatch this thread. Comeback to it, and then I want you to reply. So reply with a word or phrase (don't quote this post) in about 2 minutes so we can test this.

    I know how the system works very well. :P

    Anyways, now we have that cleared up, I hope that some sort of 'unwatch review' button is implemented in the future. *crosses fingers*
