    What exactly does that mean or do?

    It means it won't show up in the forum lists to you anymore. Basically deletes the thread to you.

    Gotcha. Thx

    So it only is not seen by the one that drained?

    Correct.

    I was confused at this too. Thought it meant deleting your own thread that you made, but then I saw you could do it on other threads other than the ones you made. You actually can’t delete your own thread.

    It works great. I love this option.

    You can drain entire threads or just certain posts within a thread.

    I find it helpful with some of the guides -- take Vid's Playfield Guide for instance. I can drain all the posts that are uninformative for a more efficient read when referencing later.

    How can you undrain a thread? Suppose you change your mind. How do you find the thread to undrain it, and then how do you undrain?

    In the forum settings at the very bottom. Click the little gear when you scroll to the top of this post, and it will bring you to forum settings!

    Edit: This is Pinside Mobile by the way.
