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, without needing to go check each one separately. This feature allows you to keep track of new comments in threads you have either commented in or posted. Recent Activity shows the last ten comments for threads in which you have participated within the past month, 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" next to that thread on your Recent Activity page.
