Automatically Subscribe to Threads We Post In [SOLVED]

Postby MtnDewManiac on Wed Mar 13, 2013 1:25 am

Definitely a newbie question, just not a "Mint OS" one. But I did not see a sub-forum specifically for 'site questions/issues, so here goes:

Is there an option to be automatically subscribed to all threads that we post in / create? (If so, where is it, please?)

Also: Minor nitpicking, but I found the option at the bottom of each thread we view that allows us to subscribe to the individual thread and it was, at first, confusing. There is the words/link "Subscribe topic" at the bottom of the page - but it displays a checkmark in a square( Image) beside it when the user is not, in fact, subscribed to the topic! Actually, this might not be considered minor nitpickiing; if it confused me, someone who has used computers enough to know that sometimes what we see is actually the opposite of what the person that created a thing expects us to infer, it's probably confusing to those who are new to computers, as well.

Respectfully,
MDM

If the fact that my post is longer than a standard SMS message causes you to be unable to take meaning from it, do not blame me for something that is either the fact of the school teachers you had or the sludge between your ears.

You can configure that in your User Control Panel (top left of the page). Board Preferences > Posting defaults > Notify me upon replies by default.
