Is there a module available that allows us to subscribe to a topic that we (individual user) posted to?

Other than a "subscription"?

One that show up in the users thread, and only the users thread?

Similar to a subscription, but actually creates a user topic?

I don't want emails telling me someone replied.

I'd rather have a personalized thread of subjects/topics that is separate from the other threads, and without the email notification, and having to "surf" through other threads looking for an answer/response to my thread.

Is this confusing?

I'd be happy to elaborate to an admin.

It's been a while since I created my own forums, so I don't know what's available now.

Phpnuke used to be my goto forum design software. It had something of the like that I'm talking about....

Unfortunately we really only have the functions that are presented.. subscription is probably the closest that will let you know about activity on a particular thread. You can use the "view your posts" button but it only chronologically orders them so you'd still have to go though a few to find what you are looking for. Another option would be to Bookmark a topic(s) then go to your user profile and select Overview and Manage Bookmarks. There will be a list of your bookmarked topics from which you can see if there are responses like on the normal topic post. Unfortunately you can't bookmark your reply (or anyone's reply) so that you would be able can see if there is a direct response to you (or someone else).... just the entire topic. :pardon:

I mentioned this before ... and apparently no easy, cheap solution.
On my Email notification, I'd like to :
1. see WHO responded
2. Include the Text of new message.

Instead we get ALL THIS USE LESS Crap going on and on .... about nothing important to following the forum or the thread in
question. Why are these genius tech guys so dumb? :pardon:

Leave all the crap OFF except for links. SHOW member respondent and show the message.
Can it be more basic? :whistling:
