    I am subscribed to 404 threads.

    This is not a complaint in any way. If this is the wrong place to post this, I am sorry. Just curious about the question.

    I have it automatically add a subscription to every thread I post in. Looks like 1,394 subs so far.

    In the User CP look at the left column, click Edit Options under Settings & Options. Under Messaging and Notifications look at Default Thread Subscription Mode, select what mode to use. I use instant notification.

    I don't tend to use that feature that much, if I do it's only 2 or 3 threads at most.

    Just curious. How do you keep track of responses in threads where you've posted?

    I visit the thread, I generally stick to a few of the forums and when I return, I see that there's responses to the threads

    2529 (now 2530) I would be lost without the auto subscription feature. It makes it so much easier to keep track of threads. It also means I can respond to old threads that I have posted in if someone has a new query.

    So, apparently I win a smackdown from rdowns.

    But doesn't everyone get one (or more) of those?

    3537 now that I have replied to this thread. I use the auto-subscribe to threads I reply to (but with no email notification) so that I can keep track in my user CP. I think I only started doing this in the last couple years when a certain search function broke.

    Zero.

    I generally only am involved in 1-3 threads at any given time, so I "find all posts" under my user statistics and check and see which threads have had some activity since I last posted.
