Next to some threads, I see an eyeball 👁 and when I scroll over an eyeball, it says "thread watched".

I'm not "watching" any thread differently than other threads so I'm wondering who is. A moderator? Should I do something about it? Why are eyeballs telling me which threads are watched and which are not? Should I care? 🤔

Watched threads are ones that you are "watching", which means that you will get some sort of notifications (depending on your settings) when those threads are updated. When viewing the thread, there's a watch/unwatch button on the right just above the top posting.

Typically, posting to a thread will automatically "watch" it, but that is settable in your account preferences.

I'm guessing they are bored by us... they're watching SpaceX and NASA too.
