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"?
