I notice that in a lot of hot topics that there are very few "followers" (follow this topic button top right of the thread) and thought I'd bring your attention on how you can autofollow all topics you reply in, I find it very handy and was "annoyed" when recently I was unsubscribed from a ton of topics due to a server glitch around a month or so ago.

 

Not only does it keep threads fresh, it also allows you to go back and read more replies to a thread you may have only spent a few minutes in answering/or replying to :)

pretty nice to have the option to get a notification (not an email) when someone quotes something you posted :D

Yeah I don't have email at all, here everyday anyway and having them inline is less annoying than a bunch of emails :p

Ah, OK. Wasn't too sure! I originally thought you had to follow every thread manually.

And all you got instead was the warwagon sex tape. Life isn't fair sometimes, is it?

Back on topic: Thanks for the hint, Steven - this is one of the useful features I had no idea existed.

They are heading to your place now, but they said that you need to follow more topics before they arrive, otherwise they'll just leave. :p

It seems to be broken at times. It shows me that someone quoted me, I click on it, go to the topic and read/reply. Go back to the main page and it stills shows me 1 notification but nothings "bold" or actually happened after that.

that usually implies a spammer on the front page, and when I go back to the notification, it'll show the user as no longer active...

or a post that was moderated
