I've clicked  'watch forum' for the 'greenhouses' and 'rocket mass heaters' forums and I'm not getting notifications for all of the new things that appear in those forums.  

I also am 'watching' a couple particular threads in each of those forums and I am receiving email notifications for those when someone posts in them.

It might be that I am receiving notifications of only brand new threads in each of those forums and not new posts from existing threads unless I have clicked 'watch' for that particular thread?

Now when I reread this it sounds pretty unclear.....I'll try to pay more attention and see if I can be more specific

we currently have two features:

1.  watch a thread:  get an email when there is a new post

2.  watch a forum:  get an email when there is a new thread


I'm not sure, but I think you are asking for a new features: get an email for a new thread AND set up a watch for all threads in that forum.

Thanks!

I'm not asking for a new feature.  I just wasn't clear about what was happening.

I see now that I'm getting exactly what was intended although I thought at first that if I was watching a forum I would get notifications of every new post rather than just every new topic.

Got it now
