@codinghorror any comments on the two subscription levels I mentioned? It looks to me that the funcitonality of “tracking” is included in the “watch first post” (both show counts of new replies), but the config pane reads as if the “tracking” does more, and is positioned higher than “watch first post”:
- Tracking: You will automatically track all topics in these categories. A count of new posts will appear next to the topic.
- Watching first post: You will be notified of the first post in each new topic in these categories.
If that’s true, the wording above could be improved.
Also, what does “you will track all topics” actually mean? I haven’t noticed anything special at all … no email is sent when topic are created, nor when replies are posted (only when I’m mentioned, which is what “normal” does too).
