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.
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, 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.
That is standard behavior for most current Web based forums, and I appreciate it. But it's still one more email I have to delete. I get well over 50 emails a day due to all the technical mailing lists I subscribe to. Add in the obligatory 20 additional emails for Viagra, Canadian pharmaceutically, personal "body building" for men, mortgage refinancing, former Royal House of Nigeria wanting to deposit 300 million in my bank account, etc., and I'm busy dealing with email for a quite a while each day. An option to disable email notifications on subscribed threads would be really nice.
So this is my wish list. I know you've already done a huge amount of coding, with a lot more to follow and I'm greatly enjoying the results of your hard work. If you can add this feature, great! If not, well I promise not to sue or go postal.
