Thanks for the step-up Persi & Alley!!!!
I have never used the option to have emails sent to my personal home account to notify me of replies to a specific thread. I have way too much email as it is, I dont need to create more. When I sign on to TCS I go straight to my UserCP which will show me right away if there has been a reply to anything I have made a post to, because I automatically subscribe to everything I participate in. So to answer your second question - not ever - I dont receive emails often concerning subscriptions, because I dont use that option. Answering your third question, yes - I always use the list subscription feature. This way I can easily keep track of all the posts I have an interest in. Sometimes I have had to unsubscribe from a thread because I found I was getting a lot of notices about a particular thread when it was just a lot of "high fives". But it is as easy as hitting a button.
I definitely have used the "Edit Options" feature in my Control Panel! In particular, I use the pop-up notification when receiving new PMs. My "show avatars", "show signatures" and "show images" is also enable, but I am not sure that that isnt the default option. Also, my "enable private messaging" is checked, which I assume is another automatic option. I know I have fiddle with the time zones and have at least checked on it when it was a KatKwiz question. And lastly, I change the forum skin quite often. I like to have a change of scenery, so go there all the time, probably at least monthly, sometimes weekly.
I just had to check - I have 280 subscribed threads right now.... I love that mouse-over feature! Only a handful of them are current. I really need to go in there and clean them out. Most of them are KatKwerys (or is it Kweries?) and KatKwizes (Kwizzes?) My oldest one was subcribed to months ago, in March! I guess I really do need to clean it up. Ha! I always have this thought that the minute I remove it from my list, someone will reply to an old message, then I'll miss it
It probably doesnt hurt to leave them there. How does everybody else do it? I imagine somebody does it like me. How many sub. threads are you tracking??? And how many of those are current?
Maybe if I posted a critical question or topic I might consider requesting an email... it's still early. Guess we'll see
