No idea, sorry. I have never turned on notifications. I get enough emails as it is! I just recalled seeing the setting in there.
Yeah, this looks like formal notification of tagged threads/posts. That's not what I need. I don't use that at all.

I need the 'Show new replies to your posts' button in the top right of the forum -- easily my most used link here -- to only tell me when threads I care about are updated.

The easiest way to do this is to 'opt out of caring' on a thread by thread basis once it becomes stale, nasty, or OT. The missing functionality would need to be added to (I presume) the thread itself or the link to the thread on the 'show new replies' tab.

CR Guy: if FB can do it, can you? :D

There will be lots of ways to see posts you have missed and are interested in seeing.

We won't be changing the core functionality of the forum software, as that's always a nightmare when update come.

OIC. You mean the New Replies function. I also use that frequently. I just read the threads I want to, then click Mark All as Read.

The new forum and site will NOT be launching today, we're going to wait another week or two to launch both the updated blog and the forum at the same time.

Sorry for the confusion,
Obviously using same software as Amazon during their big Amazon Day thingy.
