What is Recent Activity?

Recent Activity, linked in the header bar, is a convenient way to keep up with conversations you have been part of, or chosen to follow, without needing to go check each one separately. Recent Activity shows the last ten comments for threads which you've posted, commented in, or chosen with the "Add to Activity" feature, in the order of their latest activity. If your comment is one of the last ten, it will be highlighted so you can tell it apart from other comments.

If you are tired of seeing updates from a given thread, you can remove it from Recent Activity by clicking "remove from activity," either in the byline of the post, or next to that thread on your Recent Activity page. If you want to review the thread currently in, or recently removed from, your Recent Activity display, you can use the Manage Posts in Recent Activity and Manage Posts Removed from Recent Activity links which appear at the bottom of the Recent Activity page.
