Now that the watch has its own forums here, I get confused when I see the word "watch".

So, when I see the words "Watched Threads" and "Watched Forums" on the second line of the main Forums menu, I focus on the word "watch" and think for a second that's he link I'm looking for to read about the apple watch stuff.

I would like to see those items changed to "Followed Threads" and "Followed Forums" instead. Is that kind of thing possible to rename? Am I crazy for suggesting such a thing???

Oh, and that little blue checkbox below this window should read instead:

Options: Follow this thread....

Maybe it's because I don't post in Watch-related sub-forums, but I don't see how "Apple Watch" and "Watch Thread" could possibly be confused for each other.

Orientation

… confused …
Without reference to words (such as watch) that have multiple meanings, general advice for anyone who becomes disoriented at a web site that uses trails of breadcrumbs:
  1. first, glance at the title bar
  2. then, the trail (beneath which, or alongside which, the title may be repeated).

Side note and postscript

It's fun to use the Apple logo but for many purposes, more practical to use the word Apple. So, Apple Watch™ or just Apple Watch.

I think its easier to use of Watch then to type then typing out apple watch.
