On reflection, whereas many forums give a start menu, with choices about topics etc and have a 'start new thread' button, that's not the position here.
I clicked on Help, then 'Get Community Support' then I had to make a lot of choices and ask a question before getting anywhere near to posting the thread.
There was nothing on that screen about "Get replies" so I now presume that this is a standard setting.
Does this make sense, the ed-meister, please?
Click on your username on top of forum ->Settings and you should then be able to check of what you want to happen with threads you start/post in.
Its Usually on PHPbb forums, When you post and create new topic you see this option of "notify me when there's reply" but in other forum you see option of Notification in your profile, recently i about discussing about assignment writing service assignment writing service on education forum , but that forum is by default emailing me Notifications when i am getting reply.In short i depends on Forum software script.
