is there a way to track which threads i have posted to? (like a "watch thread" function). as few posts as i've made, it's already getting hard to remember to check to see if anyone has replied.
(clarification: i know about the email notification if i start the thread. i'm wondering about watching other threads.)

use the [CODE] tags - it makes it much easier for people to help you.

nope... unfortunately you can only watch threads you start with the current UBB. We're working on possibly switching the site to run on JIVE which will have this ability.
You can however click on your profile () and then click "view recent posts" to see what you posted in recently....

Also, if you start a thread, you can check the "receive email notification" checkbox and when someone responds you will get an email. It only works if you're the thread originator though.

I agree. Here's the link:
