    So we can subscribe or not when we leave our first comment, but I am still unclear on how we Unsubscribe later. Often I subscribe with my first comment and then when I lose interest in the conversation I use Manage Subscriptions to opt out. Is that no longer viable?Report

    Cancellation of new comment subscriptions will take place via the Jetpack set-up, which is hosted at There will be a link in every comment-subscription email, and the Jetpack subscription management page has other features: It will, for example, show and allow you to manage other subscriptions to sites, both comment subscriptions and new posts subscriptions.

    Though I think at some point in the future this site ought to have its own comment and post subscription facility, featuring more options than WordPress/Jetpack offers, for now it’s a serviceable solution. If I can hack it a bit – by adding a “subscribe with commenting” feature, especially – then that might make it more worth keeping in place while back-burnering the idea of more advanced subscriptions capabilities (like subscribing only to certain categories of posts or only to particular authors). I’m not sure how important or useful OT OGs, either users or powers-that-be would find the latter.Report
