    OK. I finally figured out how to subscribe to threads. This is a good idea for anyone who wants to stay in the loop but may not check the boards on a regular basis.

    Setting up Your Notification Email
    [li]On the top of the page, click on Options.[/li]

    [li]Click on change your notification settings.[/li]

    [li]In the Notify E-Mail 1 field, enter your main email address where you want to receive notifications.[/li]

    [li]If you have another email where you want to get notifications, enter it in the Notify E-Mail 2 field (I didn't use this).[/li]

    [li]For Private Message Notification, select "Yes" (not necessary, but I recommend it if you want to know when you have a PM).[/li]

    [li]Click on Save. A confirmation email will be sent to the account you entered.[/li]

    [li]Open your email and click on the confirmation link.[/li]
    Subscribing to a Thread
    [li]For any thread you want to subscribe to, click on the Notify link at the bottom left of the thread.[/li]
    [li]Set the number of Expire Days. This is when your subscription will expire. The default is 14, which I think is way too short. I like to enter 365.[/li]
    [li]Click on Submit.[/li]
    That's it! You're all set!
