There is a feature on here where you can subscribe to a thread.

If you choose to subscribe to a thread, when someone replies on that thread, you will receive an instant email informing you that there has been a reply on the thread you subscribed to.

I was how many people use this feature. I do and find it very beneficial so I do not have to keep looking at a thread for replies and seeing none.

I find it useful in threads that are long standing but sometimes are not very active (like the Recreational Maths thread). I also use it in one or two other threads.

One very useful feature is that the email notification includes a copy of the post. This could be handy if you have access to email but did not have access to a (decent) web browser.
