Subscribed Threads are gone?


I looked around on this - and I couldn't find anything - so I ask.
I no longer get automatically subscribed to threads I start - or post in. So, keeping up with replies and what not, is a but difficult. I'm relegated to searching by my username - which puts undue strain on the server. I checked for a setting - but didn't find one. ??????? Any suggestions?

Not that I am aware of - and looking in there - all that I find you can disable - is e-mail notifications - which I have turned on....but like a lot of folks - I spend a good deal of my downtime at work here - and would hate to have to continually check my mail

edit:

I just noticed - that the sentence above - is one big, long - runon sentence - and I am potentially a moron....

Are you set up for e-mail notification whenever there's a reply to one of your posts? My subscribed threads disappeared when I set that option to default to off, and when I opted to be notified about a couple of others, they showed up as subscribed.

I noticed this about five months ago. I'd subscribed to a bunch of threads and now they're GONE.

They're gone? ..or they just haven't had any activity recently? Don't forget that by default only threads that have a post since your last visit show up in MyLQ. You can change that with the dropdown.

I'm having a similar problem. When I reply to a thread, it does not auto-subscribe me to the thread like it used to do. However, I did disable the e-mail notification because I don't want to fill up my inbox with LQ e-mails. Do I need to get the e-mails to auto-subscribe? I've enabled the e-mails, and will test it out.

*Edit*
Yes, you need to turn e-mail notification ON to auto-subscribe to the threads. You can turn this on in your CP/MyLQ for all of your posts or you can activate it individually for each thread you reply to.

Chromezero, FWIW this will be changed in a future version.
