Topic: Auto-subscribe to topics that I have posted to?

Is there a way to turn on the "Subscribe to this Topic" by default? I always forget to click it.

Great forum btw. Thanks.

Adding a new subscription every time someone posts can murder a database pretty quickly. I'd rather not make it automatic, especially if most people don't use subscriptions anyway.

Thanks for the praise!

I don't mean automatic as in "everyone gets it whether they like it or not" I just mean an option (in the profile) to have the "subscribe to this topic" checked by default vs. not checked by default. The only reason why I bring this up is because phpBB has a option like that and I thought PunBB might have something similar.

Thanks.

This would be very useful for me too. I tend to forget to check the box. I'd hate accidentally drop out of a discussion that way.

Oh okay, that's less of a problem. I'll see if there's a punBB mod/extension that can do that.

Agreed, I could also use an "auto-subscribe" feature (even though I end up reading every post anyway). Maybe we'll see this in the future. smile

Eventually, I'd like subscription options more in line with vBulletin (i.e., option for automatic subscription on reply, and non-email subscriptions that are update in your control panel).   But that's a low priority feature right now. smile

Does Beast have those features? I look forward to what RailsForum is planning on moving to in the near future. vBulletin looks to be the gold standard when it comes to Forum software these days. I hope they can get some competition wink

edit: read the threads on RoR based forum software... I love the wild west of a new language/framework.
