    Just wondering how many some guys have here? Of course I know a lot will depend on your profile setup default of course - but still, cannot curb my curiosity... incase anyone asks - it is shown when you click for your CP I believe! (and of course EP could craft his own SQL script to fill out the poll on auto!)

    [edit]BUGGER - test in poll says how many POLLS - should read how many SUBSCRIPTIONS, don't believe I can edit a poll... so adding that here! [/EDIT]

    Interesting poll. I had actually wondered the same thing before. I'm automatically subscribed to every thread I post in, so that obviously puts the number up there.

    To clear things up a bit more, under your User CP you should choose to "View all Subscribed Threads."

    Poll topic corrected

    I'm only subscribed to one (yes, one) thread - the pinned Mozilla support one under Applications. :)
    I'm usually on the forums multiple times a day, so I usually look over most threads. Don't find the need to be subscribe to any particular ones.

    Never needed to yet. OSNN hasn't grown to the size where I topics get lost in the crowd. If I wanted to find where I posted, I just do a Search.

    I try to keep my subscriptions managable. :rolleyes: The humorous ones I rarely subscribe to cause I can always find them... there is always someone posting to them so they is always at the top of the lists. :D

    Tech stuff and quite a few of the informative ones I will always subscribe to. Then after about a couple O months I prune. But the ones with realy good info I keep forever. Ya never know when ya might need that info.

    I hover 'round sixty ta sixtyfive. :)

    Better choose my words carefully here. lol :p

    Got sick of getting notified that someone replied one of the threads I had taken part in.
    When I first joined NTFS, I left the preferences on standard (i.e. automatically subscribe).. after a few weeks, I kept getting emails of someone replying a thread..

    I am automatically subscribed when I post, but if I get bored with the topic and people just won’t stop posting in it I will remove the subscription.

    If it’s a good topic but I don't want to post in it I will subscribe too.

    I don’t use email notification on these boards since I usually just check my User CP, on larger boards however I will do notification by email, usually these are only the odd thread, something I’m asking or answering or waiting for a response to.

    Most of my subscriptions are old topics, a feature could be added so topics older than x.x date are unsubscribed for you.
