Sorry Brian the default on phpbb3 is now you have to subscribe to threads to get notified. On the old boards you needed to unsubscribe. I guess to cut down on spam complaints from the spammers.
I have thought about going in and changing the code so you had to unsubscribe to a thread just for the contact factor. I know even myself has to be reminded to return somewhere for follow up most of the time.
Yes I know and I admit I am terrible that way most times.
I do think I'm better at going into the blog and forum section on the board to navigate to sites when I'm in that mode. I always like that option.
By the way this was to really to help turn the page.
Now you have two!
