Not very helpful! Some of us aren’t involved in threads (so we aren’t “making it longer”!) But will still get updates for every reply!
I know what Wendy means… I would like updates on new topics but don’t really want an e mail for every reply to every thread.
Another forum I am on sends an email update when there is a new reply to the topic but you don’t receive any further emails about the topic until you actually log in and view the topic. If this option is available here let me know! Another had the option to “follow” a topic, so you only get updates for the topic s you are following.
