How do I view subscribed threads?

The first time someone replies to one of your messages (like, uh, this Smile ...) you'll get an email, and that email contains a link to your "watch list", which I believe is what you're asking for.

There's no specific link to it on the site. I wasn't sure where to put it, and I figured that the only people who would need it are people who regularly get notices... and they would typically think about it and want to use it when they get an email.

You could put a link to my "watched list" at the bottom (or top) of the Forums page. Frankly I'd rather not receive email every time I have a reply posted to a thread I'm watching. I'd much rather manage all that on the Web board itself.

Thanks for your prompt responses!

Ah, so you're looking for something that lists replies directly, not the subscriptions - that's a little different. That would similar to the "Response Tracker" for the old news groups. I will look into adding something like that.

BTW, the email notifications do have some limits built in. For example, if you post something, then 7 people reply before you visit the site again, you'll only get one email. It won't send you anything new until you view that message or thread again.

I'm not familiar with the old Response Tracker. What I was hoping for was something like the vBulletin user control panel but just for viewing threads I had subscribed to.

Let me add that I like the way the threads display in the top level, but I think on a "Subscriptions" view I'd prefer them to be collapsed. Or (want to write a lot of code?) maybe the option to switch back and forth so each person can select which ever view they like.

BTW,

"...Canadian pharmaceuticals,..."

An edit function would be nice, too.
