    I noticed in my profile that I'm "signed up" for a thread. How do I sign up
    for threads. I don't remember signing up for the thread it lists, but I'd
    like to sign up to some other threads, but I can't seem to find the right
    button? Where is it/how do I sign up? Thanks.

    Hi, Justin.

    > I noticed in my profile that I'm "signed up" for a thread.


    If you don't remember "signing up," then chances are, you didn't. The Web
    portal is still buggy and people get notified via E-mail that there's a reply
    to their question, and when they follow the link, it's someone else's
    question.

    > How do I sign up
    > for threads.


    Whenever you post a question or reply to a question, there's a check box on
    the bottom left of the window, "Notify me of replies," which you must check
    before hitting the "Post" button. Occasionally, you'll see threads where
    someone posted an "empty" reply (no written response), and it's because they
    want to follow the thread via the E-mail notifications, but they don't want
    to participate. You can do the same, if you don't mind being considered
    annoying. It's annoying to sign up for this notification and be sent E-mails
    whenever someone posts a reply, yet find that there's no reply to read when
    you get there. Kind of like playing "ding-dong-ditch" when you were a kid.

    So, you're saying that if you click the notify me of replies button, then
    those posts will show up in the "signed up" for threads section?

    The thread will be listed in the "My Notifications" section of your profile.
    Whenever there's a new post on this thread, you'll receive an E-mail alert
    of this fact and a link directly to this new message so that you may read
    it. The system is still buggy, so don't rely on it to work correctly 100%
    of the time, but most folks find the free service very convenient.
