    I don't quite get how watching a thread works. I use it as a way to get notified of new replies as well as a way to bookmark threads. But latter doesn't seem to be working. So when I click on "Watched Threads" I get a "You do not have any watched threads that are unread."
    Is there a way to bookmark threads?

    Thanks
    Kal

    Hi Kal,

    Just below where it says there are no unread watched threads, there is a link labeled "Show all watched threads":

    If you click this it should show you all of the threads you're currently watching.

    Regards,
    Matt

    There are a couple of Preferences:

    • Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply...
      • and receive email notifications of replies
    Generally, I might watch threads I'm interested in, but haven't replied yet, so most of the time it's an automatic watch.
