Subscribe to forum topics

As far as I can see, it isn't possible to subscribe to a topic on this forum. I'm used to being able to do that on other forums so I can get emailed when someone has replied without having to manually check, but it looks like it's been disabled here. Is this on purpose? Thanks.

I've looked around in my account's options, and it seems like the closest thing you can get is a notification (and optional email) for when someone replies to you.

Yep, I noticed that. Maybe that works if a post is quoted, but for example, I didn't recieve an email notifying me of your reply to this topic, so I guess that doesn't count as a reply in this context. As far as I know it's a standard feature of other phpBB boards I use so not sure why it isn't present here.

I wonder if replying to post then deleting still causes you to be notified...
