I noticed that I am no longer getting mail notifications when there is a reply to a tread I posted in or when I have a PM.
I've been looking high and low and read through the FAQ but:
I can't figure out for the life of me how/where I can subscribe to a thread.
When replying there is no "subscribe" checkbox....

Can someone help me out?

Kind regards,

- Little_Ghost

AFAIK, you have never been able to get any mails from this forum, as it has not any mail server linked.

hmpf... I quote the FAQ:


Topic Subscriptions and Bookmarks
» What is the difference between bookmarking and subscribing?
Bookmarking in phpBB3 is much like bookmarking in your web browser. You aren’t alerted when there’s an update, but you can come back to the topic later. Subscribing, however, will notify you when there is an update to the topic or forum on the board via your preferred method or methods.

» How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?
To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.

:( Ah well, We'll just have to do it manually then.

That was written by the programmers of PHPBB, the forum software. SCS had nothing to do with that. You might email notifications from other forums using the same software, but you won't get any from this one because there is no email server set up to send them.

Thanks for the clarification guys.

Here's what I do to keep track of threads I want to watch. I made a folder in my Firefox bookmarks for forum threads. Then when I want to keep an eye on a thread, I just bookmark it in that folder, using the thread name as a title for the bookmark. Then delete them when I no longer need them.
