Confirm that I wish to subscribe to a thread?

Post by AZgl1500 » Sun Sep 30, 2018 1:18 am

Has something changed with the forum?

I just now clicked on Subscribe to watch a thread of interest, without having to HiJack the thread.

that option to subscribe to a thread, has always been there - - no recent changes, that is.

it should be under the 'spanner' icon, that is next to that "Post Reply" Icon at the bottom of each Topic. ..

I do sometimes. It seems to happen mostly (maybe exclusively) when subscribing to a thread in the Newbie section.

I have been trying to see if I can find a pattern, but everything I have clicked since has worked the normal way, with just a short popup stating "you have been subscribed".
Newbie seems to be normal at this moment in time.

Then I unsubscribed:

Unsubscribed manually
Shot in the dark---was it this forum or another one?
