remove bug from my "Bugs related to" page

Asked by Bernhard on 2008-08-18

Is it possible to remove a bug from my "Bugs related to" page? Say, if it's in there because I commented on this bug.
In my case, I made a silly comment on #001 and now I have this bug in 10 different projects on my "Bugs related to" page (this also made me a heavy contributor to various forums). That's weird.

Hmmm. Hmmmmm. I actually don't think you can. The problem is that by definition bugs related to includes bugs you've commented on. Where would you be able to find the bugs you commented on otherwise?

I guess there's an argument for removing "related to" altogether and just having the more specific listings. But isn't that regressing functionality when for many people it works as it is?

Bernhard (b.a.koenig) said : #2

Yes, it would add functionality if one could somehow modify their own "bugs homepage", in my case and define what I want to show up there (e.g. "related" or "reported").

How about if we make bug #001 invalid for all projects except for Ubuntu? Would anybody care? I mean it has become more of a discussion forum by now.

I'm afraid of touching that bug IYKWIM <wink>

I think your former request is a valid bug report, though it does mean a lot of work for us to implement. What I could offer to do is to have an admin remove that comment from our database, permanently.

Bernhard (b.a.koenig) said : #4

It's OK. Not such a big deal, I was just curious.

Thanks Christian Reis, that solved my question.

Perhaps there could be a way to hide bugs? I have a big pile of Baz 1.x bugs (long since a deprecated project) that are swamping out bugs for other projects that I care about.

Bernhard (b.a.koenig) said : #7

James, that was exactly my question, but it doesn't seem to be possible.

Christian Reis (kiko) said : #8

Short answer would be that yes, when we have an "expired" flag to mark bugs as expired, that would be used to expire old bugs and leave them off the radar. We could also masss-expire bugs for projects which were somehow marked inactive.

I have this problem as well.

I've commented on a bug and I have no means to stop if from appearing on my bug page. I'm not listed as subscribed nor as "also notified". I would be helpful If I appeared in also notified list, or commenter list with a nice "-" button so that I can make it disappear from my bug pages.

The bug is not touched, very old and i don't care about it anymore. Bug #125067.
