I know there's a page that lists all the threads I'm watching, even when nothing is new, but I can't find it right now. Where can I find it?

Click on your Member Page (link is in the "About You" section in the right-hand column. One of your links you'll see is the list of threads you're watching.

Wouldn't it be cool and handy if we could watch threads right at the top of the same page of the forums we are watching? When the whole DG name change fiasco was going on, I noticed I was all of sudden watching a thread about the progress - and it happened to be right where I'd love to see other threads I am watching, on top of the forums. Is there a way I can make it do that instead of 3 clicks away - literally! Just a thought.

New edit - I guess it does that? Someone just responded to a post (Bless your heart Dixie) and it was up there. Weird.

Dana, if there has been a new post from someone else (not your own post) to a thread you're watching, a link to the thead will appear at the top of your homepage.

You can view ALL the threads you're watchding - whether or not there's been any new activity in them - by going to your Member Page.

This is an older thread...but it seems the closest to a question I have, so here goes... Is there a system limit to the number of threads we should be watching? I just noticed with some alarm that I'm watching 275 threads, and I expect that to keep growing...I am reluctant to miss anything, but I don't want to contribute to overburdening the system! Is there some point at which we should be going through our watched-threads list and culling the unwanted ones?

No need to cull - go ahead and watch all you want. Some members here are watching thousands of threads and it's not a problem.

Besides, I've noticed that sometimes months later someone will "bump" an old thread and this way you'll be notified of it, because you're still watching it.

Or to be more accurate, Dave's Garden is watching it for you, long after you've forgotten about it!

Hey, this just answered my question of whether or not anybody (Dave) cares how many threads I'm watching. As part of cleaning up some un'solved' ID threads, I just weeded some down ... to about 2150.
