    I have recently been having trouble with the subscribe button. On a few threads now I have clicked subscribe and it tells me it failed to create the subscription... I have tried 2 different computers on both Firefox and IE and have the same results. I DID manage to get one to subscribe finally, I think I tried it on my Kindle. But this has happened on every thread I've tried to subscribe to lately.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know what's going on but if you are having trouble, posting in a thread automatically subscribes you to it.

    We're looking into it. Can you post the exact error / message it gives you. A screenshot would be even better if possible.

    If you go into your account preferences, you can change your subscription preferences. I just peeked at yours and it is set to automatic.

    Go to Profile>Edit Account Details>Notifications and Subscriptions>Default Subscription Frequency
    There you can change it and hit "Save".

    Actually, I know that's how it's supposed to work, but it won't let me subscribe to this thread and I had to come check to see if there were any replies because it didn't tell me.
