Turning off "auto-subscribe" for created issues

Suddenly all cards I create are automatically being "watched" by me. How can I turn this off again? I know there is the check mark when commenting on cards, but deactivating that didn't help.

Hi @Benedikt Glatzl I noticed there were six community users writing in with the same issue since Friday so I thought I would do a bit of investigating. Trello support is looking into it, however you can send info to See screen shot, they are currently investigating the issue.

Once I know more I will share with you.

Thanks and have a good day,

Hi @Benedikt Glatzl I just found out that the Trello team made a temporary change as part of an experiment that includes the behavior you're seeing. There isn't currently a way to disable that, but I've passed your comments about the change along to the team. Sorry for the frustration in the meantime! Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

Have a great rest of your day.

Hi @Benedikt Glatzl , the Trello Team received a lot of feedback about this autowatching feature that was recently enabled in Trello.   As a result they are planning to disable the auto-watch feature on creation of new cards for now.  However there is still an auto-watch enabled for any user that changes a due date on a card, that one will remain in effect for the time being. This change will take affect sometime between now and by end of day tomorrow (Thursday) for all Trello sites.

I hope this helps and have a great day,
