a suggestion to help follow threads perhaps?

an idea perhaps; to save posting to some threads one wishes to keep tabs on for replies; could the threads have a "watch this thread for replies" tag on them so we can click on it to activate e mail notifcations of replies , and click on it to deactivate the notification?

sometimes we may wish to keep track of a thread but not post to it; so is this suggestion possible F.E.?

It would mean that eventually we would be sending tens of thousands of emails a day, as people clicked to have email notifications of replies to threads.

I don't have a problem keeping tabs on threads I want to watch - I simply paste links to them into an Excel spreadsheet. It works perfectly.

Just as easy is to book mark them,
I belong to quite a few forums and bookmark threads i want to watch.
