Hi,

While reading the forums I come across quite a few helpful threads. Is there a way that I can subscribe to old threads and see them stored somewhere, so I can go back to them? I could only find the *notify me of new posts*-function. Or is that the same?

Thank you for your time

Unfortunately we do not have a way of doing that yet. I will make a note for future consideration. Thanks!

as Henry said: no such thing yet - but I found a good alternative (for now) Jun 13, 2005

I checked the FAQ before and I believe it only refers to new threads or posts. The threads I wanted to *subscribe* to are old (2002 etc.) and unlikely to have new posts added anymore, hence the present notification system doesn't work.

As Henry said now, there is no such thing (yet). I found a more than acceptable alternative for the time being: safe the link in the favourites folder. I just didn't do it in the first place because usually there appears some cryptic title in the name box. But, what a pleasant surprise, when you safe a thread of these forums you get the full name of the thread plus the forum name in brackets.:)
