    Just a thought, but has there ever been a discussion on ways to get updates on threads you have posted in? As in... right now, we can "subscribe to this topic" and it sends out emails to you when someone posts something new in that thread. Well my only problem is that I have ADD and will post a little in this thread and a little in that thread and I try to subscribe to them all. I dont want someone thinking Im a snob or dont care if I forget to go back and post my reply about a question or something they ask, etc. But yet I forget about one, cause Im too busy looking at something else on here.

    Is there a way to have a section of BYC where we can see all the threads that we have posted in and want to subscribe to? That way we can go back and look at one without having to search all day long. Cause sometimes I dont even post a response, but want to be updated(of pics and etc) of new things posted there. I guess it would sorta be like an inbox for threads you want to keep up with, but not get so many emails everyday. Just log on, go to the thread/inbox/thingy and look at whats been posted in the ones your subscribed to. Post or read the ones you want to and then go on about whatever else you want to do on BYC.

    I LOVE BYC and will continue to come here no matter what, but its a little overwhelming to go to my yahoo inbox and see 30 messages from BYC about someone in this thread has responded. I just thought others could benefit from this to.

    Does any of this make any sense? Maybe Ive had too much [​IMG]

    I never subscribe because I don't want all of the email notifications. I just go to the bottom of the page where it reads your posts. It works great.

    What if you just click on the link at the bottom of the index page for "Show your posts". It will list all the threads to which you've posted that have recent replies.
