The only "subscribe" feature on the board is intended to notify you of new replies. So if no one says anything then you won't be notified.
Bookmarking is the best way, although if the thread is moved to another category (like "Best of the Boards") then it might get tough to chase it down.
Your memory for posters & keywords may help narrow down the search results. Have you tried messing with the "Advanced Search" settings? Personally I feel that I've archived a lot of my life on this forum-- now if I could just find what the heck I'm looking for.
Another option is using the "Send Topic" button (bottom right) to e-mail the links to yourself and build your own annotated archive.
