I've attached screenshots of the lists, and when I go into one of those lists. That's where I'm seeing the subscribe icon?

It would really help if you could answer some of Mark's questions. I see
the instruction I tried to give was confusing to you. You do not need to
be subscribed to have administrative access and to access the General
Options page.

Here are Mark's questions and instructions again:

Does your subscribe page look like the one that Mark linked to above?

Are you able to find the "LISTNAME administrative interface" link at the
bottom of that page?
