two questions, still need to get used to this.
- I noticed that when I add a post somewhere, the thread will be set to be "tracked" by me, which does not include email notifications if I got that right. All I can see would be a reply counter of some kind somewhere (?).
Well, I entered the forum-user-prefs and found a setting. I set it to be "Watching" from now on, which I think should be the default for new users? "When I post in a topic, set that topic to" -> "Watching"
Maybe it should be the default for all users? It also looks like it has not been migrated correctly, I always had email notifications enabled in phpBB. I think a change in the personal preferences like this cuts people off, which leads to the second question.
- I now have some threads that I "track", although I was "watching" them in phpBB (receive email for every new post).
To be more precise, it seems I am tracking all of the threads I ever participated in. How do I get these threads to be on my "watch" list, so I get email whenever a new post arrives?
I really don't want to come here and check counters or notifications somewhere on a daily basis to see if something new happened. May email inbox did and does a pretty good job of summarizing what's going in the forums and discussions I take/took part.
