Without being upset or angry I want to kindly remind people on this forum that you can follow any thread by clicking on the "Watch" link highest up in any thread.

I have seen people saying that they always write something in threads they want to follow and even recommending it to other because then it will get "watched". One does not need to fill the threads with non helping comments just to follow. On this forum many times the threads are pages after pages with "noise" and then here and there a real comment about the discussed topic.

Thanks! I didn't know it either, and it is helpful.

That is a great reminder. Not sure if it still holds true, but back when I joined in 2011, one had to post at least three comments per day to keep their status of "regular member", and so a lot would use one word comment on threads for that reason.

And we survived 8+ yrs. without that info! Unbelievable! Anything else need correcting? Kind words are always helpful. Sign me, another of the originals of 2011! Hope this error has not been bothering you for the whole one and half year membership...not upset or angry, just a kind retort.

Yes, you DO need to comment to a few item daily to maintain your "regular" status. Commenting CAN put an item on your "watch" list - if you want that.
At the bottom of the page, if you do a "quick reply," you can check or uncheck the box next to the Send button so a post is watched/on your list or unwatched or not watched - but your comment still counts.
You can set up the default for "always watch" or "don't watch" in your profile. And check/uncheck the box next to Send button for each comment.

I've only been a member since last fall, so I need to ask, "Are you saying that we shouldn't post a one or two word comment, whether or not we want to follow the post?"

Vickie,

You post whatever you want to. No one is telling you not to. :)

No, I'm not saying that! Feel free to post your comments! I'm just saying you don't need to "watch" every topic where you leave a comment.
For example, I'm watching this topic in case there are questions I can assist with.
If I am commenting "lovely shawl," I probably don't want to "watch" for other's comments.

I think the OP is simply trying to point out that there is a quick and easy way to “Watch” a thread without having to take the time to type in something like, “I can’t help you with this but I’m watching.”
If you look right above the original post on the far left side, there are two handy tools. One says “Watch” if you just want to read along as responses are posted and the other is “Bookmark” in case the information is something you want to keep forever (also without having to post).

Spell something wrong? Make a double post? Want to make a correction on your post?
For about an hour, you can EDIT and UPDATE your post.

Want to comment but not watch? Remove the check mark.

Two pics below. Sorry, don't know how to add a border so they are more obviously just screen shots.
