Default Notifications?

I absolutely love this forum and the amazing advice people give! I find it tough, however, to keep track of threads I find interesting. It would be neat if there were notifications to let us know when someone had posted on the same thread that we did. I know that I can "Find my posts", and get to them that way, but I have no way to know if there are new things to read on it or not until I get there. Maybe this option is already available and I just don't know where to locate it? Just an idea.

Go to the User Control Panel and on the left side click "edit options". You can then set up notifications and a bunch of other things.

Looked at it, but the only option is email notifications- my email inbox already fills up fast enough as is. Was hoping there would be something on the site itself

Well I don't really used subscriptions because I pretty much have to looks at all threads. So there may be other ways I'm not familiar with.

Another option...most email programs have the ability to shift all emails from a user defined address to a specific folder. If you set up a rule, then the forum emails will go to their own folder that you only need to look at when you choose and won't clutter your main box. I do this for a Yahoo Message group that I'm on and it works well for me.

I use the Active Topics tab at the top almost exclusively. If someone posts, it goes to the top of the column.

Put your mouse on your word "bit" and scroll straight up. It is in the black bar that runs left and right about 3" - 4" from the top of the screen.
