One of the best features of these forums is the ability to subscribe to an entire forum or an individual thread. When a post is submitted to the forum/thread you have subscribed to you will be notified via email!
When you post a thread, there is a check box that allows you to subscribe to that thread. If you select it, every time a reply is submitted you will be notified via email. This is great if you have a hard to find part that may take weeks/months for a reply to get posted. You do not need to keep checking the boards to see if a reply has been posted. If you subscribed you will be notified via email as soon as the thread has been responded to.
If you want to subscribe to a thread you did not start, simpily select the link near the bottom of the page that says "subscribe to this Thread".
Subscribing to a forum is different than subscribing to an individual thread. A forum includes many threads. You can subscribe to a forum by clicking the "Subscribe to this forum" link on the upper right of the page. This option is good for the Model & Year Knowledgebase forums.

There are lots of Airstream parts specialist subscribing to the parts forum and they will be notified every time you submitt a request for parts. This means that you should hopefully recieve a quick response! If you are a parts supplier this willprovide you instant notification of sales leads!
Now these notifications can become a real pain if the thread is fairly active! You can manage all the forums/threads you are subscribed to by going to your User Control Panel (user cp). To get to your User Control Panel, select the button at the top of the page that says "user cp". Or click here!
You can also set the forum to use email notification by default when you post a thread. This is done in your options page. Go to you User Control Panel and then select "Edit Options" and look for the Default Notification feature there. You can turn it off or on.
Hope this helps!
