Unsubscribe Bug

Really minor bug, may have already been reported: when I go into a thread I'm subscribed to and click 'Thread Tools' it just says 'Subscribe to this Thread' not 'Unsubscribe'. Gives me the impression I'm not subscribed to the thread when in fact I am.

I have my subscription setting set to 'No Email Notification' and I am automatically subscribed to threads. I can unsubscribe from the CP though via the link under the thread title. Not major by any means...

Confirmed. That's a definite bug. I've never wanted to unsubscribe to a thread, but it would be really annoying if I did.

Thanks. It's rather trivial, but least it's not just me

The option does what it says it is suppose to do. No bug here. You are asking for a feature; since the option is not even visible and the OP seems to have auto-subscribe on I would say this is a waste of server time.

I suppose that on its face, and by a strict interpretation of the text itself, there's nothing to suggest that the option should reflect the subscription status of the thread automatically and change to "Unsubscribe" - and therefore it may not be a "bug" per se.

On the other hand, every other vBulletin forum has the "feature", so I would think it's an industry practice and custom by now. In that context, I'm not sure the cost-benefit analysis comes out to be as much of a waste as you're suggesting.

Regardless of the semantics though, it would be a nice option to have.

I've checked with vBulletin.com and yes it changes. There are several posibilities, none of which would be a bug:
  • a option required for its availability is turned off
  • vBulletin.com is using a plugin (unlikely)
  • the administration has made a modification that causes it

Well, bug, missing feature, or deliberate decision, am I the only one who feels that the lack of this option is an unnecessary inconvenience?
