Any easy way to unfollow previous discussions?

I don't know has this topic discussed previously but this is a big problem for me. When you make a comment about a question you automatically follow that discussion that's ok but after commenting on many questions. so many mails drop to your inbox. and not just for the replies to your question, for all of them. So I really wonder if there is a section we can see all discussions we are following or should I unfollow as I keep receiving the unnecessary allerts.

To avoid such mails, you can go to settings and adjust your mail notifications

Don't forget the option to manage emails so they go to their own folder and don't mix with the inbox: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1480196 ^_^

Thanks but unfortunately these are not the answers for my question above.

Is there a section we can see the discussions we are currently following?

@TrangQ I just want to avoid unnecessary alerts not all of themso adjusting my mail notifications doesnt solve my problem. I just don't want to receive responses from topics I ve commented when I was level 1 or level 2...

@Usagiboy7 I have a filter. I am not complaining about full mailbox actually. I would like to receive even more mails but from my latest topics not the basics.

@MiDestinoEsMio,

That I know of, there is no place to see everything we've ever followed, save for our activity stream which shows everything we've ever done on Duolingo. Unfortunately... this isn't going to be a viable option for most people.

The other option is to go one by one as you receive a notification and click the green button in the right hand corner of each discussion. it says "Following Discussion"/"Unfollow Discussion".

@Usagiboy7 Than I think this is one of the gaps that duolingo system has. As a moderator can't you inform the system analysts to fill this gap. Like your uploads section under "immersion". There can be a "your discussions" section. And it must not be that hard to create.

Moderators generally aren't more closely integrated with the staff than any other Duolingoer. (We are just Duolingoers who volunteer to mod.) However, Staff is generally aware of the suggestions people are giving in the Discussion forum, since Duolingo is based on crowdsourcing. You could create a discussion with "Suggestion" in the title if you'd like to, and put your idea there. :)
