Searched on the web for "What are forum subscriptions and just got a zillion hits from those who already are making use of this apparent generic forum tool but no where have read a thorough description for. Also there appears to be different ways specific forums implement subscriptions. Ditto just searching on this board. Most web forums don't use subscriptions so there are lots of people that probably never use them just like me because they don't understand their reason for being. I have a vague understanding from poking about in my account settings. Appears I get subscribed to all threads I post in? Why should that be useful? From some of the old threads posts it is obvious I'm not the only clueless person about the tool.
So a summary definition/description by an actual moderator as used on epicski?
Why should we members want to use subscriptions?
