i'm not sure what that is... so none. I'm a causal reader. Just come on once in a while to read topics

I don't subscribe to any threads. I just browse the BBS through the front page of the forums and click on any threads that interest me. The bolded ones are the ones with new posts.

Same with Ricky. The highest number of posts are in the Photo Album, or the video game thread. But there's a huge gap between both.
The bolded ones are the ones with new posts.
Subscriptions are useless for a board this size. If we constantly had 300 members logged in and topics with hundreds of pages, then I'd subscribe to topics I want to keep up with because they'd otherwise be difficult to locate on the humongous board. But this board is relatively sane in size so if I want to get to some topic, it's easy to find and if I can't seem to, I'll just do a search.

I don't subscribe to threads. It's easy enough to keep up with anything I'm interested in.

Agreed with the majority. Its easy enough to find the threads that interest you on a board this size.
Although saying that, the search button is still overlooked too much.

I've never used them but like Vera said, pretty useless when you're here. Maybe it could be useful if you were away from the forums for quite some time, but this way nah. What does it do anyway? Send you e-mail notifications? That could be annoying.
This one board I go to is so huge they had to disable the search feature because it takes up too much bandwidth. For that board, I subscribe to the threads I want to keep up with since otherwise it'd be difficult to find them, as the board moves several pages of threads a day. They've also disabled the "New Posts" feature so without subscriptions the board would just be impossible to follow at all.
Sim - I think you can make it send emails or not send emails. Or send them weekly or daily or whatever. Not sure of the system on this board.
Ricky - Yours or mine?
