Is there any way to 'subscribe' to a given forum and simply receive emails as postings develop?


It's a real pain to have to GO to the list, find a forum and then slosh around looking for topics.


I'd rather just get everything and then delete out what's not needed.


Meanwhile, WHY can't I start a new topic??

Hi Bill, recognise your name from the uwphoto mail list.


you have to reply to a topic (like this one) first. Its to stop bots from subscribing and spamming.


I have bookmarked "new topics since last visit",  or read the forum on tapatalk (mobile or ipad).


you can follow an individual topic (click follow this topic, upper right).  There is a similar button for 'follow this forum'.  you can only follow individual  forums, not a collection of them.

There is a button at the top of each forum AND the top of each topic (thread) so you can follow.

Hey guys, 


Can you tell me if and how i can reply directly to an individual post on a topic? (not PM) Or do i just have to post via the standard "reply to this topic" box and hope that the person is following the thread.

Hi Grant

Yep, it's either a PM to someone directly or Reply to This Post and hope the person reads it. I've found the PM system works well and have continued a conversation off-line a few times.
