I would like to be able to subscribe to a new thread while I am posting it (without having to go back and subscribe).

Alternatively, I would like to be autosubscribed to each thread in which I post.

how about subscribing before you post. that might save a few seconds on having to come back

That technique would work except for new threads I create. I can't subscribe to a thread which does not yet exist.

I dont see how a couple extra keystrokes is that big of a deal. BTW you can always find your own threads just by looking at the forum. the thread starter always has their name on the page. It's pretty easy to find your own threads that way unless of course you only write messages infrequently which would make subscribing to unused threads pointless

I never said it was a big deal. This is a forum for things we would like to see incorporated into the software. Other online forums that I use have this feature and the SETI@home forum does not.

I completely realize such requests may be deprioritized into oblivion -- after all, it contributes little or nothing to the science done -- but I would think the maintainers still have an interest in keeping up to date with features. If not, why is there a Wish List forum?
