    Help please! I know the fact my Watched Topic section has nothing in it has something to do with the buddy list but I don't know how to change it so I can see all my Watched Topics. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    As far as I know, anything you reply to automatically ends up in the watched list. If you don't reply but want to watch a topic, you just click watch.

    I have no buddy list but several watched topics.

    I thought that too but there is nothing in my Watched Topics and I know there should be. I know I'm missing something simple- that's how it always works for me!

    There's only a tab that says Show Buddy List only so I guess that's the problem- I don't know how to get it off that tab. I'm feeling more inept as I go :)

    Click on show only from Buddies come out and then go back in - should show you everything that is watched AND I think they only show up there when there is a new comment made .

    Here is what is listed in How to use the board area :

    My Watched Topics

    This page (link at the top of the page) lists the topics which you are "watching" that have new replies in them since the last time you viewed them.

    The main difference from the Recent Topics page is that My Watched Topics only lists the topics you are "watching". So any topics in which you participated will not get lost among all other recent discussions happening on the board.

    Right-hand side of each topic column has two links.
    "=>" will take you to the last post you read in that topic
    "->" will take you to the last post in the topic

    By using this page, you can always check which of "your topics" have new replies without the need to check your e-mail and look for the notifications.

    "your topics" includes all topics you are "watching" -- topics which you started, topics in which you posted replies, and topics for which you clicked the "watch" link (top left).

    My Watched Topics list works regardless of your e-mail notification settings. You can disable e-mail notifications and simply use the list to catch up on all topics when you visit the board.

    Hello there! Consider yourself lucky if you hate computers; ALL machines including computers hate ME! They must have some sort of intellectual capacity, at least enough to league up against me, and start acting up as soon as sit down next to one.

    I believe you'll get email from topics that you commented on,if someone else puts another post. If it's something you really really want to watch, bookmark it. Make sure you type in a name because I missed a lot of bookmarks when I first got on the board, thinking that if you just click bookmark it'll add it, but it doesn't. YOu have to type in a name, and click on save that's to the right of your title.
