Topic Subscriptions

A way to create more active involvement in the forum is to notify people by default that someone replies to their topic. Many people would not seek this out or forget to change it in their control panel or when posting to the topic.

Notify me upon replies by default:ON

Good idea...

I suspect some folks haven't stumbled across some of the popular methods of browsing/keeping up at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=11846" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

For me, using View active topics and View your posts are absolutely necessities. Drilling down thru areas doesn't cut it, esp. w/the random stickied posts.

Thanks, didn't even realize that was a setting. I often forget and then use the subscribe link when I notice that I have unread "view your posts".

That would be fine except many have no interest in being here every day to check what's new.

This place us a resource..a tool if you will. People want to use their tools and then put them away until needed again.

I'm no longer receiving notifications about new posts in subscribed topics, anyone else? I looked through the Control Panel and couldn't find a relevant settings.

I certainly didn't get one for yours. This topic is definitely showing as subscribed for me. Is there a setting that I'm overlooking? "Notify me when a reply is posted" is checked when I'm posting this.

I would be strongly against changing the default. It's enough that people who want that behavior can get it. If I want to subscribe, I will subscribe...which I never do. I find "View Active Topics" and my memory to be sufficient. If I was a newbie and found the forum sending me unwanted email, I'd probably just leave the forum.
