Subscribed to a thread which I hadn’t subscribed to.
Received two emails that told me that there’d been replies to a thread I’d subscribed to (“Trailer for my dark fantasy adventure game - your opinion please”) which I hadn’t. Checked the thread and it was showing subscribed to so I clicked “unsubscribe” whereupon I got a message telling me:
The following errors were encountered You are not authorized to perform this action”
It appears to be the only thread that this happened to which is odd as I’d expect that sort of error to be all or nothing.
Life is what it is.
I’ve had the same issue a few times in the past weeks where I was suddenly subscribed to a thread I didn’t subscribe to (but where I did post something).
If the “regular” unsubscribe-link doesn’t work under the thread title, you can always unsubscribe by managing your subscriptions in your user profile (click your nickname in the upper right corner).

Cheers Tim, I was unaware that that existed - probably because I’ve never subscribed to any threads
Just in case any investigation takes place I hadn’t posted to that thread.
Life is what it is.
I think this happened to me too. (Unless I accidentally subbed to a tread without noticing.) I got a notification e-mail for a thread after taking a quick look at it and deciding that it’s the kind of discussion I really dislike. (People trash talking games that other people love for no apparent reason.)
In case it helps track the bug down, I did post in another thread during the same visit, and checked the “notify me” button for that thread even though I probably already was subscribed to that one.
Thanks for the report, will look into this. I fixed something with subscribing to a thread with that button (ut was broken before) but unsubscribe is apparently broken as well. Will also look into mystery subscriptions
Fixed the unsubscribe option, will investigate why it sometimes subscribes you to the wrong thread
