Something is wrong with the date format setting under the global settings page. I keep trying to change it to use absolute timestamps, it says it has saved successfully but when I go back to the settings page again the setting has reverted to custom. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

May I add a vote for a "Bookmarks" feature?
Following threads as a workaround has several drawbacks: it floods our mailbox, consumes your bandwidth, and it doesn' t allow us to actually build a list of valuable threads.
O.C. this is still a great site!
Cheers!

There is a "watchlist." Look at the top right of any thread and click the eyeball. Go to you control panel and open your watchlist.

Yeah, that is what I am using. It would be way better if there were an actual way to organize it though. You ever try to find a certain thread when you have hundreds in the watchlist?

The old forum software had bookmarks and then when the new forum software was introduced I had to request my bookmarks be imported to the watchlist so I could at least have them back.

yes, but unless I am missing it I can't "watch" a thread and not be notified on every new post.
I'd like to bookmark threads to be able to go back to them when I need info on the topic but without receive several emails a day on new posts that I can't read in that moment.

Not that it such a big deal though.....

hum, I don't mean to troll, but with the available options I can either have a watchlist and be notified of every thread's posts or work around it by turning notifications off and have a "bookmark" by loosing the notifications function. It' s either one or the other.

When I mentioned the bookmarks I was thinking about being able to be notified of those thread where I am awaiting for an answer or comment while begin able to have others marked for future reference "on the side". IMHO these are complementary functions and not really the same.

Again, I don't mean to make a big deal about it, and I appreciate your link , as I tweaked a few more options there. Thanks.

That would actually be a really sweet setup. Now I want that option as well.
