Debiant by way of Ubuntu
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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
