    It is hard to keep track of threads in which you are participating in such a busy forum. So, I keep two links bookmarked:

    1) Find new posts since my last visit (simple enough, there is a link for it up there): http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/search.php?do=getnew

    2) Find posts I have posted in: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/search.php?searchuser=Hatter+The+Mad&do=process

    You can actually execute 'advanced' searches using URL parameters: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=107955

    Don't you just look at your subscribed threads in the user CP?

    That's all I usually do and then go into the various sub-forums when I've checked/replied to whatever has been posted in threads I'm subscribed to.

    I've been here quite a while and I don't think I've ever subscribed to a thread - I did it on another forum once and got fed up with all the email spam (which no doubt you can disable these days, but bleh).

    You could disable it when I joined so that's about five years worth but I guess you have your own routine for how to keep in touch with what is going on, much as I do.

    You don't have to get email updates about subscribed threads. I've turned mine off.
