It seems that people use these "subscribe" one-liners rather than click notify because threads flagged via the latter mechanism don't show up under "Show new replies to your post."

There should be a rather simple solution to this: Simply that threads marked as 'notify' begin showing up under 'show new replies' as well. (the label for which could then be changed to the more inclusive "Show notified posts.")

but notify also send you emails.

writing 'subbed' doesn't subscribe you to emails.

The latter is an option. Just tweak your userprefs if you desire that.

Ya, since work has not yet begun on this forum software's successor,  I too would like to see a couple of the most painful issues resolved in the software currently used.

Subbed.

Also, is it REALLY that hard to scroll past the "Subbed" comments?  It takes a fraction of a second, really...

The 'sub' band-aid doesn't scale. The forum is growing.

Ok, I agree.  It would be nice to be able to subscribe to threads without writing in them.

As somebody who reads the forum using the RSS feed, it's really annoying to see a notification there are new messages and a bunch of them are "I'm too lazy to press the notify button"

I consider those messages polution that makes the forum less readable

Sub.

This is something we need. It should only take a few minutes to make "notified" threads appear in "Show new replies to your posts"

Busy ATM.

Those are annoying. I've looked into creating a "watchlist" feature in SMF, but it seems very difficult (which is probably why there are no modifications that do that already).

He's welcome to write the code, then.

You also need to be able to remove topics from unreadreplies for it to be usable as a watchlist.

nope, that does not help you subscribe without posting 'subbed'.

You had said: "writing 'subbed' doesn't subscribe you to emails."
I said, But it can, if you tweak your options.

That is, after that, writing sub *does* subscribe you to emails.

In case we are confused, let's repeat: "Posting sub subscribes you to emails, and I showed you how."

So, I don't understand your new objection: "that does not help you subscribe without posting 'subbed'."

okay mis-understanding... what people posting 'subbed' really want to achieve, is being notified of new replies without getting emails.

you can't do that any other way.

What people could do is click notify, and then filter out all the email notifications to /dev/null.

Maybe I misunderstood, I guess "notify" still doesn't get the topic to show up on the watch-list?
