I have spent far too much time on my own trying to find it. Now I will accept my public ridicule for being an idiot and ask for help.

Thanks.

You have to be a paid member to subscribe to threads.

Can you subscribe without being a member?

Its a feature for paying members.

When I was a non paying member I created a bookmark file for threads I was interested in and just bookmarked them.

ETA - I think you can subscribe to threads in some tech forums even though you're not a paying member.  The button is in the same line as the new thread/reply/forward buttons.

Huh, I must have been a paying member a while back. Which just added to the confusion when I could no longer subscribe, and couldn't remember how I did it  the first time.

Thanks again. This problem has an easy fix.

You may be right.  Before I was a paying member, I could use the search function to most forums except for GD.  So it seems likely that you can also subscribe to non-GD threads as well.

I do believe that if you contribute to a thread with a reply you are given the option to subscribe even if you are not a paying member. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, though. If it is available, the Subscribe/Unsubscribe button is in the upper right or lower right of the thread page.

Edit: I think it is like JAD762 said, it might just be available in some of the subforums.
