    Hiya Beyond Blue, I like to reply to posts on this site, and then follow up that thread. I wish there was an option to get emails when a new post is added to a thread that we're following/ posted in. I posted in a thread i don't frequent often, and forget to check it, and the other person in the thread went weeks without a reply... That's why an email notification would be great- never miss a post again, and also know when others are replying to OUR threads.

    I think it's a great option- is there any chance it could be considered?

    Hi Beltane, thanks for this - yes we are soon going to be adding a feature that allows you to "subscribe" to a thread, so you will get notifications when new replies are received.

    dear Christopher and Beltane, that's a great idea as the amount of people posting pushes comments over to page 2 then 3 and then 4 so people could be waiting on page 4 for a reply but we have no idea, which then makes them feel unwanted. Geoff.

    Oh thats really great to hear! It would be such a useful thing, and it would mean threads wont get forgotten and the poor people in the threads thinking they've been forgotten..

    Thanks for listening!
