Using the Watchlist

Note: The Watchlist is a subscriber-only feature.

If you've made a post on the site, you may have noticed a blue notification at the top right side of your page. If not, just look for the binoculars icon. That's your Watchlist. Its main purpose is to help you keep track of conversations across the forums. It's pretty simple: if someone posts a new reply into any thread that's in your Watchlist, you'll get a notification. Just roll over or tap the blue icon to see how many new replies there are and click that number to be taken to the first unread reply.


Three ways to add a thread to your Watchlist

  1. Start a thread
  2. Post on a thread
  3. Click "Watch Topic" (desktop) or the Binoculars icon (mobile) at the top of the thread

Four ways to remove a thread from your Watchlist

  1. Click the "X" icon on the left side of the Watchlist drop-down
  2. Click the "X" icon on the right side of the full Watchlist page
  3. Click the "Stop Watching" or the Binoculars icon (mobile) at the top of the thread
  4. Once a thread has gone 30 days without a new reply, it's automatically removed
