Just interested, because I can't bring myself to use the "watchlist" feature.

I'd like to also make a suggestion:

why not extend the "new replies to your posts"-list with a blacklist feature. I think that'd be awesome.

I don't understand why anyone would not use the watchlist. You can configure the watchlist to be exactly the same as "show new replies to your posts" by configuring your posts to be auto-watched and adding your posted-in topics to your watchlist. After this is done, you can unwatch topics that you don't want to see.

I only use watchlist because sometimes I post but have no intention of ever visiting that thread again. If I use new replies then I will see that same stupid thread show up on the list over and over again.

Now that I know of the "secret notification setting", I will migrate to using the watchlist once I have posted enough in my favorite threads.

I thought you had to add each thread manually to the watchlist, that's why I didn't use it.

theymos: how about putting that checkbox ("automatically watch threads I post in") to the "watch / unwatch" this topic popup? (I know, not as simple to implement as I'm making it look Wink.

It seems I'm not alone in not knowing of this setting that makes the watchlist actually very useful.

Personally I'd like an option to simply not display the "Show new replies to your posts" as sometimes I accidentally click on that when I'm meaning to click on "Watchlist" (especially after a few beers). Smiley

hehehe, that problem I have also since I switched to watchlist-mode. EDIT: haha, I found an easy way to accomplish this if you use adblock: right-click -> block this ad Wink

oh, and having the "unwatch topic" link directly in the list itself would be comfort zone ++.

what's wrong with the watchlist recently?

It seem to work quite erratically. Sometimes it's even empty (which seems highly unlikely).

Does anyone else have the suspicion that the watchlist isn't working quite right?

(I'm accessing bitcointalk.org from 3 different machines.)

Any thoughts?

Sometimes I get strange results from the Watchlist, but it's rare enough I usually attribute it to clicking on the wrong link by mistake. Perhaps this is not the case.

To answer the original question, I use both features, depending on how much time I have from least to most: new replies to your posts, watchlist, unread posts since last visit.

Each layer acts like a filter. New replies is the smallest subset. Watchlist is populated via the Watch board feature, and occasionally when I manually watch a thread I found via unread posts. Even unread posts is filtered via ignoring all the boards I don't want to read.

Even with all this filtering reading this forum feels like trying to drink from a firehose.

I prefer to use "show new replies to your posts". For me it'ss simplier, because I'm always seeing fresh replies in threads where I posted. When this page becomefilled with threads which no more interesting for me, I just click "mark all messages as read". But maybe I woll give a try for "watchlist" now.
