[SOLVED] No way to save notification settings?
I did go through all the obvious options without success. I'm not sure what checking those boxes accomplishes, but I was imagining something through the "Notifications" tab at the top of the screen.
If there's something I'm missing, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll leave it up to you. It's not a big deal either, it doesn't take very long to navigate to "subscriptions."
That's all. I really think this forum is great both as a resource and as a website, it just seemed odd that there was was a seemingly unusable feature.
Thanks for your time.

Do you mean Settings -> General Settings and then Default Thread Subscription Mode?
Notifications will alert you to various things such as PMs and likes etc.

Just click the "Settings" link at the top of your screen. That'll take you directly to your subscribed threads.

I'll follow your directions and see.
This is what I'm talking about:
New Tab-> www.linuxforums.org/forum-> Sign in- > Notifications(Drop down menu at the top right of the screen)-> Inbox-> Subscriptions.
On the far right is a column of check-boxes next to each item you are subscribed to under a column labeled "Notification". By clicking each, I'm guessing you check that the one you want to be notified about. But, after checking them, I don't see a way to save that choice, so that when I navigate away, of course they are still un-checked.
If my description is still too vague, I can post a screenshot. I will try what you said though, I might be missing something really simple. I hope I'm not wasting your time

There is a selected threads near the bottom of the page, alternatively what I posted previously will set your default setting

Woah. Thanks Mike, I didn't know you could do that
Sorry for wasting your time guys, I guess I should have done some more digging.
