    It requires three action to set up. Once set up you need do nothing. You will get them at the top of the page in the notifications box or they will go your email automatically.

    The point I was making is, if you post frequently, reply quotes are a real nusance. Your email will be dinging all day long or you will have a ton of notes to open and the system only keeps the most current 25. Usually, I just keep some pages open where I commented or remember to look in on occasion. If you don't comment too often and want to view your replies it's not so bad.

    I have most everything else enabled , including thread subscription.

    That is about the same general Modus Operandi I use too.

    This is what I do to follow threads I have participated in.

    Go into General Settings: YOUR General Settings

    Find the following setting and set it to the drop down item I have selected here:


    This will make it so every time you click settings in the the header you'll see every thread you are following until you hit unsubscribe. Like so:



    As you can see I have four threads right now that it's keeping me updated about. Three of these threads are bold showing they have new replies. The first one is read - I just posted there before this post.

    Hope this helps.
