How come this shows up on my 'watched' section? I didn't show any interest in it or post anything... ?? No offense to those who are interested. I'll eventually just unwatch it, but am curious how it popped up for me.

Nope. They just appear for me. I usually unwatch them, I'm not that jazzed about the raffles.

Yeah, me too. I'll wait to see if anyone can shed some light, then 'unwatch'.

Ok, I figured it out. You did post on a raffle thread yesterday, so you're watching raffle threads.
The thread "Love these "Not-A-Raffle" Raffles." in The April Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

But wouldn't that just hold true for the particular thread I was posting to? Which I've not heard the answer to...

You would think so, but I think when I've posted in one thread on the Raffle thread, I ended up watching anything that was posted about the raffles. Dave or Jon could tell us for sure.

I am pretty sure if you buy a ticket , you are automatically watching all threads started in that month's raffle.

Kinda weird. None of the other forums work that way. Perhaps I just stay away from the raffles (I'm not a mail order gardener so they really don't hold much appeal to me). Easy enough to unwatch.

Pretty sure you can just unwatch the main raffle page.
most likely it's that way so everyone that enters gets notified when the results are posted.

Ah, perhaps you are right krobra! In that case I'll just stop buying tickets. For no known reason I always buy 5 tickets. Perhaps I'll instead donate nuts when a new raffle begins.

I am pretty sure you can unwatch the main raffle page after buying tickets , and not have all the replies show up in your watchlist.
I think I did turn them off once but turned them back on because it was just more fun with them then without them.
