HOW DO YOU RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS on POSTED TOPICS or COMMENTS?

I may be missing the obvious here but,
is it possible to receive a notification to your email when someone replies to a thread you've posted.
Or is it possible to subscribe to a thread you've made a comment on, and a notification to your email ?

I've never known a forum that doesn't have that option.

Typophile used to be like that. I think they stopped it because: they thought it was old-fashioned; it was legally dangerous in terms of libel lawsuits.

There is that RSS thing though. Or try this way: http://typophile.com/tracker/45717

That's poor.
It makes it so easy to switch off, and not bother with Typophile.
I often forget that I've posted something, and in this electronic age, there is nothing worse than waiting for an answer, or a reply, rather than getting on with work, and being told exactly when "Somebody has responded".

@djnippa, I hear you on waiting for an answer. I thought I was also missing the obvious, but never found the right options in my profile or settings to activate notifications. Notifications would be considered the easiest way to be updated on a thread. At least, and it would still be an archaic structure, having a "subscribe to this thread" option to be notified in a dashboard of sorts upon login.

Ever since the [NEW] Font ID forum started, they don't appear in "My Posts" either. The last one showing is from a year and half ago. At any rate, I hope there'll eventually be a way to receive notifications at some point.

Yes it is unfortunate that the My Posts feature is disabled for the font ID board. At least it still works for other posts.
