Wouldn't you want to know if there were any comments after your post? Settings are for instant email notification of replies.

I don't see the button to be emailed with responses, when I am typing a reply. Did it go bye-bye? I can choose to "follow thread" in the dropdown, but seems like extra steps. Thanks

I've been wondering about that too lately. Didn't know if email alerts for some threads stopped, or if they never were turned on in the first place. I looked in settings and don't see an option to have a thread turn on auto-alerts if I post in the thread.

Use to be a check box on the full editor to subscribe and I do not see it anymore. Do not see a setting for auto subscribe in the profile settings either. Only way is to go to the top of the thread and click on "Thread Options" and select "Follow Thread" from the drop down. Kinda a pain now to follow threads and get replies. This board's software has always seems to be 10 years behind everybody else in use.

OT, but you're back! Back on topic, I can't say how well it's been working, since I have had notifications turned off for years.

Are you looking for notification of when you reply to your own posts?

What would be the point of that? You're already there. The problem is that there is no email notification when others post replies in threads you yourself created or posted in. It's assumed you are interested in the subject of the thread, or else why post (unless trolling), and thus you want to be notified when someone posts a comment or reply after you.
