Unless something has changed it doesn't work like i want.
I reply in the box at the bottom of the page and it works great but i never get emails because I'm not actually subscribed via email. So, the long way around, is i reply in the box at the bottom and then when it reloads i hit the 'subscribe to this thread' link thus re-loading the page a second time to subscribe me. I just want to type in the box at the bottom of the page and be automatically subscribed.
No no no. It's the box at the bottom of the forums. NOT when you hit the reply button. In the preferances you set it up to automatically have the reply box checked on the reply page. But i'm not talking about that page. I'm talking about this little quick reply box at the end of the forums.
