    Click on your name, you'll go to your profile, click on "statistics", click on "all threads started by you".

    alternatively, click "Quick Links" in the menu bar, then click "Subscribed Threads" (two from the bottom of the drop-down menu) :wink:

    That won't show anything if you don't have subscribed threads, I don't. It won't show just threads you started either.

    I also never subscribe to threads. I don't want any source of e-mails, and don't see point of subscribing otherwise. Actually, I would like an account setting for 'no subscribe' by default. I have to remember to set it any time I compose a message.

    if you click "Edit Options" on your User Control Panel, you get …
    Default Thread Subscription Mode
    When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.​

    … and you can click "No email notification" (instead of "Do not subscribe"), so that you are subscribed to every thread you post it, but no emails are sent to bother you :smile:

    The point is that by clicking "quick links" followed by "subscribed threads" you get a list of all the threads in which you have posted recently. The ones that contain replies you haven't read yet are displayed in bold. It's an extremely useful feature. The first thing I do every time I come here is to check out that list, and for each of the bold ones, right-click and choose "open in a new tab".

    If I lose interest in a thread, I'll just remove it from the list by choosing to delete the subscription for that thread.

    The only thing you accomplish by not subscribing to anything, is to keep that list empty. Since it's a list you only see if you request it, I'd say that not subscribing has no benefits at all.

    I have a great memory and I know where I have posted and I can easily see if there have been responses when I enter the forum. But that's just me.

    If my memory failed me, looking at my posting stats is all I need. Gives me a complete list with previews of each post. Have you ever looked at your post stats?

    I can see subscribing as useful if you are an HH and in and out of many threads and need to know if there has been a reply.

    Even if I can find all the relevant threads, the way I described is much faster than manually opening each forum where there might have been a reply. It even lets me know if a post gets bumped after a few months.

    No. I don't know how to do that.

    Yes, it's especially useful if you post a lot in the homework forums, where the thread might quickly disappear from the first page.
