    There's so many though. Is that the only way?

    Are you meaning you have a lot of watched threads with unread replies?

    If so what I did was click on the "Mark Forums Read" from the home page and it cleared them up.

    True, but that marks all forums read which I don't really want to do.
    Yes I have a lot of watched threads with unread posts.

    I agree that having a feature where one can unsubscribe (unwatch, as its now called) multiple threads would be very useful. Having to open a thread and then unwatch is cumbersome, time consuming and for those with limited GBs - unnecessarily costly.

    We had it on the old website and it was one of my favorite features.
