I am not sure how one goes about subscribing to the forums. I was referring to just normal posts in Non Fiction or Extended and certainly haven't subscribed to them. Is that what you are calling phpBB forums?
The software that runs this site is called PHP BB, so my comments apply to the whole site, Jean.
To subscribe to a section or forum (eg Poetry or Short Stories) you can use the Subscriptions option in My Profile (top menu).
OR, go to the forum itself (Poetry or SS or Non Fiction etc) using the list on the front page, and scroll to the bottom and click "Subscribe". You then get one notification when anyone posts anything after you last visited that forum. Just one.
You've probably only ticked the box on your own posts that says "Notify me when a reply is posted" - am I right? You get one notification if there's been a reply to that posting since your last visit. At least - in theory that's what happens!
