    Have a question about how "People You Follow" works.

    On the old site, most of the content in my subscriptions (Watched Threads/Watched Forums now) was based on users I subscribed to.

    BYC generates A LOT of content, and I haven't been up to making the kind of lifestyle changes necessary to keep track of everything, so instead when I identified someone that sounded like they had insights I was interested in, I followed them. Then any of their posts would be added to the display of my subscriptions, and I could follow along.

    When I navigate to Watched Threads here on the new site, I don't see that content. At least one of those users I follow has posted here on the new site, but I haven't found where that information is displayed.

    What is accomplished by following a user? I assume that means their posts will be displayed somewhere, but haven't found where yet.

    Thanks!!

    When you follow a user, their posts show up in your news feed. Hover over Account on the right and click on "Your News Feed".

    Seems useful to me too. Don't know how it showed up. I'm sure there's a button I can click somewhere, just haven't spotted it yet.

    It is a thread prefix, moderators and admins can apply it to threads in this subforum.
