How do you track threads you've participated in?

Most forums powered by vBulletin are configured to subscribe to threads you participate in. The few that don't subscribe automatically can be configured to do so. When I sign-in to the forum, I just click the link at the top-right to view my subscribed threads. The ones with the most recent replies appear at the top.

For example, the Anandtech forums default to "no email" subscription for every thread I post in. Every time I go to the forums, I just click my subscribed threads at the top-right (actually, I keep the subscribed threads URL in my bookmarks).

Even if someone bumps a thread I participated in years ago, I'll see it at the top of my subscribed threads and I'll be able to re-join the discussion.

Also, most forums let you search for your own posts, but I don't see how to search posts/threads by username on this one.

sadly you can't search your own post on zetaboards, neither cant you subscribe to a thread.

Click on your name. Click on your profile. You will then have the option to click on your posts or topics your started.
Also, on the bottom of the home page, in green, you cam click on replies to your topics.

My actual bookmark for this forum is this: http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Fo ... earch/?c=5

It's the "Active Topics" link. You're pretty much guaranteed not to miss anything if you check that once per day.

Good tip Kartmaster - bookmarked. It would be awesome to be able to get email notification for subscribed threads though. I wonder if it would be possible to add this feature?

You can have that feature for a yearly subscription of $79.90 http://docs.zetaboards.com/services/premium

Seems a bit high imo.
