    Default Subscribing to threads, only one is subscribed

    I subscribed to several threads from my cell phone. When viewing profile/subscription on my computer, I found only one thread was subscribed. What happened to others?

    could be phone software. automatic subscription (if turned on) occurs when you respond to a thread

    Thanks for the reply but I was talking about those threads that I manually subscribed (thread tools/subscribe) and not responded to. Only one shows up in my profile/subscription. Others did not show up in profile/subscription. Yet, if I go to the appropriate question page, I see a green dot next to the thread which means I subscribe to the thread. They just don't show up in profile/subscription.

    I thought I could use the profile/subscription to keep threads that are of interest to me. Guess not.

    if they are actually subscribed then you should get email updates with responses (unless turned off), I find it generally difficult going back to threads of interest as finding the right keyword isn't always easy as its the concept or technique you want to remember

    You should be able to (I do). Did you click the View all subscribed threads button?
