    * Post Reminders / Watched Threads *

    What, if any, is the functionality/feature difference between 'Post Reminders' & 'Watched Threads' ?

    I think it's kinda like saving a important or handy thread you want to keep an eye on. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> Without building your Watched Threads list out of proportion, and that doesn't take long to do if you post on alot of different Threads. Anyway, thats the way I use it.

    One notes the entire thread and, I believe, will flag up if there are any new posts to it.
    The other notes a specific post that you may wish to refer to at a future date.

    HI, Leif ~

    Okay, I think I see that the 'Post Reminders' does not get flagged with 'New' if a new post is made while 'Watched Thread' does. I was curious if there where any other diffs.

    So I guess I am using it as it was intended. Great.

    I can't tell you the truth. It's a Government Secrect. I'm with the CIA {Cowboys Intellegence Agency} and we are looking into the Bull <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> factor. Have steped in it many times. Have to be careful about Cowboys and Bull <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> , they have in on them at all times. So beware.

    Also,

    If you actually post to the thread (or maybe the post, I don't recall which one) that is in your Post Reminders list, it will automatically be remoived from the list. Whereas the Watched Threads one will always be there until you delete it.

    Hmmmmm. OK. Now I know not to post to that if I want to keep it.


    Nope I just tried it and after a post it was still in the remiders list.

    Hi, Bryan ~

    Seems to be remaining after a couple of successive posts. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I just did some tests because of your post, and it will disappear if you reply to the POST that you put the reminder on.

    If you reply to any other post in the thread then it will remain.

    Yes, you are correct....replying directly to the post from which the reminder was inaugurated rather than the thread does indeed remove the reminder from the list.

    Thank you!


    .....replying to post.....
