Your userpage and talkpage are not on my "watchlist" and the stars for these pages are currently white. I clicked ignore for this thread and the ignore link doesn't go away, neither do the "New Messages" stop linking to something appearing to be your talkpage. (I'm not trying to ignore you, just testing.) When I click New Messages I'm taken to a page with many threads I am not "observing", many of which I've never posted in and they all seem to be on "your talkpage".
First of all, on Special:NewMessages, click Mark all as read. Then, click ignore AGAIN on the header of this thread. Then, don't post on my talk page.
Did that. The "ignore" link doesn't go away when I click ignore. Instead it takes me to a page with only this thread on it. Clicking the blue star on this one-thread-page does not turn the star white.
This doesn't require scripting enabled, does it?
Should the ignore button change to "observe" immediately after you click it? It is definitely not doing that for me. I tried with Chromium also.
<not required reading> Chromium is what you use? ...or Chrome on Microsofties Windhoes? You don't have to answer that.
I guess I am the only one and this is just a big coincidence that it just happened to be the person who knows the sekrits of the RationalWiki voting machines. </not required reading>
