I believe there is the option to Subscribe Topic at the bottom of the page. Does this not work?

I think that option would PM you every post that is made to the thread. So not just the actual updates, but everyone's response. The idea I have in mind is more filtered.


That sounds a bit too specific for a forum, how is a forum supposed to know that it's a story update or the author replying to comments? If you're wanting emails when stories get updated, since I don't think we've got a single person on this forum who does the updates in the thread, it's probably best to go directly to the blog the author has set up for their story and subscribe at the source. If that's the reason you want a more specific subscribe.

Is there a way to disable the games section from being counted by 'the 3 most viewed threads' and 'the 3 most replied threads'?
It kind of feels like it defeats the purpose of having those if it's just the games stuff that shows up. Except for Keika's White Legacy that has managed to beat the games section for views. I know when I log off I can see other threads, since the games section doesn't show up to non-members. Is it possible to make that work when they can be viewed?

I second this request. I finally figured out a couple of weeks ago that if I don't log in, the most recent active topics I see are Sims-related, which I'm more interested in over the Off-Topic stuff that usually dominates the top of the Home Page. So I usually don't log in here anymore, except to post.

An app to view the forum on a like a tablet or phone.. I hate going through Google on my tablet or phone. It would be cool to have like a mobile app. Just an idea :wizard:

There is an app called Tapatalk. We are setup to use that already.

I checked the options and I cannot select only certain forums to display. I can change the number of topics that show up or I can turn it off.

It's okay. I was just curious.
Speaking of most viewed topics, Keika's White legacy has reached number one over all the off-topic ones. I'm a biased sister, but that sounds medal worthy to me.

Thanks for checking!
