There might be some obvious answer to this I have overlooked, but how can I be notified when a thread I've posted on gets a new reply? It's pretty much impossible to keep track of threads without some link to it somewhere...hopefully someone with some experience can help me out. : )

Thanks!

Something that might also help is, any thread that you've posted to will show a green arrow in the lower right hand corner of the 'envelope' icon, so when you come here and are reading forums, you can look for that.

It's possible that this doesn't apply if you're connecting to TC on a mobile device using Tapatalk - I don't myself, so I don't know, but I know that there's a lot of useful information that Tapatalk users don't see.

On the other hand, Tapatalk offers a "Participated threads" forum view so it's not really necessary.

I've been using tapatalk for a couple days now since you suggested it and it's pretty awesome. Thanks for pointing it out! :)
