<p>In the old forums there was a tab to see if any new posts were made in threads you either created or added to -- does this feature no longer exist?</p><p>Also, I have it selected to notify me when someone replies, but I can't find where that would be.</p><p>Can anyone help me, or is this borked?</p>

Typically, if you have requested to be notified when a thread is replied to, you are sent an email when a response is made at whatever email address is registered in your profile.    And while you can't seem to sticky a thread you want to watch anymore, there's an option at the bottom of the screen to toggle watch on a thread.

<p>Seems to me that there is an awful lot of things people are missing from the old forums.......and very little (any?) new, possibly with the exception of the ability to post under personae, although even that apppears to ber bugged as there is no rhyme nor reason as to what comes up next to your posts.</p><p>I hardly ever used to post in the Forum Help section, now I spend most of my time here. And they call THIS progress?</p>

Now that all (or at least most?) of SOE's games have finally transitioned over, it is my hope that more attention can be paid to features.  We shall see. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>I believe the notifications are indeed borked.  I've got my preferences set to notify me both of new PMs and new replies to posts I'm watching, but since the transition I haven't received a single email of either nature.  (Both checkboxes are there when you click "My Profile" at the top, under the "Preferences" heading but above the skin choices.)</p><p>AFAIK, there's currently no way to check only the threads you're watching; the link at the top of the main forum page shows you ALL posts since your last visit, not only the ones you're interested in.</p>

I don't get the email notifcations and I REALLY wish there was a way to watch certain threads. It's like we took a huge step back in forum technology...

Best (only?) way I've found to check or track posts you've made on these forums is to go to "My Profile" and then click on "my Profile as others see it" in the upper right corner...
