Your attempt to do this has failed.

  1. When clicked, the unsubscribe link at the bottom of forum notifications returns the above message.

    Web-based email program in Chrome 36.

  2. Sorry for the trouble! I can't reproduce the problem at the moment, is it still happening for you?

  3. Yes, clicking on the "Want less email? Unsubscribe from this topic" link produces: https://i.cloudup.com/aSZUARr5Jl.png

    Logged in on both ends.

  4. Hm, ok, is that happening on all threads or just a specific one? Are you subscribed to this one? If not, would you please subscribe, then try unsubscribing.

    If it fails again on this thread, it would be easier to test here.

  5. All threads that I'm subscribed to.

    Just tried on this thread, which I was already subscribed to, and received the same failure notice after clicking on the link in the notification email to unsubscribe.

  6. Well, you see the problem here is that the forums have become self-aware and they don't want you to unsubscribe.

    (Kidding, I hope, we're looking into this.)

  7. Ah, that may explain this odd voice notification I hear when reaching that page...

  8. Yeah, that's been bothering me too.

  9. @justjennifer!

    I just wanted to update you and let you know that this has been fixed!

    Thanks for your patience!

  10. Hi Grace!

    Three different forum subscriptions:

    First unsubscribe attempt: If I'm logged in to WPcom, clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email brings me to the appropriate thread and it shows that I am no longer subscribed. (This one)

    Second unsubscribe attempt: If I'm not logged to WPcom, clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email brings me to the front page of the forums.

    Third unsubscribe attempt: Your attempt to do this has failed.

  11. First unsubscribe attempt: If I'm logged in to WPcom, clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email brings me to the appropriate thread and it shows that I am no longer subscribed. (This one)

    I'm just a bit confused. It seems like the 1st attempt worked as you were unsubscribed? Was it not the case?

  12. Yes, but only that one of the three different forum subscriptions.

  13. I have this on all of mine too. I just ignore it click into the threads and unsubscribe in them.

  14. Good to know you're not sweating the small stuff, tt. :)

  15. I think I have always received that same error message. Well, for as long as I can recall and you are right about not sweating small stuff. I have a whole new perspective now.

  16. @justjennifer-

    It was recently fixed. Are the threads you are trying to unsubscribe from older threads? Do you have any from an hour or so back that still does this?

    Please let me know!

  17. Here are the threads I tried to unsubscribe from:

    Attempt #1: This thread while logged in. Result: Success!

    Attempt #2: Forum Sticky on the new Post Editor Improvements while logged out. Result: Redirected to Forum front page rather than log-in page. After logging in, still ended up on the Forum front page.

    Attempt #3: "How to make a photo slideshow as a gallery?" while logged in. Result: Your attempt to do this has failed. The last post in that thread is from August 26th. Hardly enough time to grow mold on it.

  18. When were the emails sent from attempt 2 and 3?

  19. #2 after your post in that thread, today, roughly 3 hours ago.

    #3 from August 26th, the date of the last post in that thread.

    Past my bedtime, so I'll catch up with you tomorrow.

  20. Can you check if it works from an WordPress.com Forum email sent from here on out?

  21. OK - thanks for fixing the immediate problem. :)

    Off to unsubscribe from older (a week?!) threads from my profile page.

  22. Sounds great!
