keeping up with a thread

Question

how do i know which threads i'm in? there seems to be no indicator of which threads in the forum i've contributed to, combined with no email notifications, and unpredictable website notifications (browsing to the site sometime says "this tread has..." but it's inconsistent)

i'm assuming i've missed a setting or something?

thanks for any help :)

If there is activity in a thread which you have posted in there is a black star instead of a black dot next to the subject. Otherwise there is a faint gray star.

The forum can send out email. Click on the Bell above, there is link to notification settings the upper right of the notification window. The same settings are linked to your account settings page.

yes, thanks, i'm not completely useless! i have the following enabled (set to "on" or "email") but have never received any email for anything:

Send me news and information
Automatically follow new content I post
Automatically follow content I reply to
Method to use for content I follow automatically: A notification when new content is posted
New content for things I follow
Someone comments on something I follow
Someone reviews something I follow
Someone I am following makes a post
I receive a message
I am added to a conversation

and i have the  "Notify me of replies" switch set to "On" on forum replies

is the billionaire paying you yet, scook,  for doing his company's employees work?

Aside from star in the forum listings mentioned in previous thread you can get a global look by
clicking on your user icon at top right of screen:

and the following page comes up:

listing every thread you're following.

 

> email notification:

Either set the follow option per thread you wish to follow, as shown here...

or  set your account settings to automatically follow your posts

Edit: note it seems that the forum's default setting for both options under 'Automatically follow content' is unchecked (NOT enabled). Or at least it was at the point when I checked and changed it.
