    Just a thought- it might be nice to have an option to get different default subscription settings for threads you start, and those you reply to. For example I don't really want to get emailed about the random picture thread or a GMT, but might for a thread I started asking a question about something. Having separate default subscription types for threads you start and threads you reply to seems like a decent way to set this up, would anyone else be interested in that or am I the lone whackjob who would?

    I completely agree that makes more sense than "any thread I post in, I want to subscribe to."

    I'm investigating other forum software - VB is getting bloated and unwieldy. Will keep it in mind when I do so.

    i'd still like the ability to sort the forum and subforum layouts.

    Yeah... So far the candidates don't support that. We'll see.
