What are thread subscriptions?

If you want to keep track of a thread, you can subscribe to it. It is then added to your list of subscribed threads in your Settings page. In a way, they act like bookmarks. You can opt to have email notifications sent to you when there are new posts to the threads. In AQ, by default, you are automatically subscribed to any threads that you start or post to. The default subscription mode is Instant email notification. Modes of subscription are explained below.

Modes of Thread Subscription
There are 5 thread subscription modes:
  • Do not subscribe
  • Through my control panel only
  • Instant email notification
  • Daily email notification
  • Weekly email notification
You can set your mode of subscription in your Settings page, under General Settings.

Do not subscribed
In this mode, you will not be automatically subscribed to any threads that you start or post to.

Through my control panel only
In this mode, you will be automatically subscribed to any thread that you start or post to, but you will not receive email notifications when there are new posts to the threads. You will only see the notifications listed in your Settings page.

Instant email notification
In this mode, you will be automatically subscribed to any thread that you start or post to. You will receive an email notification for the first post to each subscribed thread after you last read the thread. You will not receive any furthur notifications for those threads until after you next read the thread. This is the default mode when you register with AQ.

Daily email notification In this mode, you will be automatically subscribed to any thread that you start or post to. You will receive a daily email to notify you of any new posts to your subscribed threads. If there are no posts to your subscribed threads for that day, you will not receive any notification email.

Weekly email notification
In this mode, you will be automatically subscribed to any thread that you start or post to. You will receive a weekly email to notify you of any new posts to your subscribed threads. If there are no posts to your subscribed threads for that week, you will not receive any notification email.
