Subscriptions?

I've been a member since 2006. I still don't understand my User CP subscription display. I enable instant email notifications on all posts, whether they are a new Thread I started, or just a reply to an existing Thread.

They never show up under "New Subscribed Threads". I have to go to "View all Subscribed Threads". It just seems wrong.

What am I missing? Thanks for any replies!

Janet, thanks for the reply.

I repeat my question: "They never show up under "New Subscribed Threads". I have to go to "View all Subscribed Threads". It just seems wrong."

I believe I thoroughly understand how thread subscriptions work. I do get notifications when a new post happens, but that isn't my question.

I've belonged to dozens of forums, and even newsgroups in the 90's before they got renamed. Why, when I post a new thread, or reply to an existing thread, or just subscribe to a a thread, it doesn't show up in "New Subscribed Threads"?

Those feeds are designed to show you content you haven't view yet. The newly subscribed threads list changes as you read content. If you have read all the latest posts to a subscribed thread it will drop off the list.
