New Watch Button

Hey Guys,

We've learned a lot since we launched the new site. We are constantly trying to improve the current feature set and figure out what does and does not work.

Today, we are adding a new "Watch" button. The new watch button is easy to use and helps you keep track of updates to content. It's very similar to subscribing to threads.
It's easy to use and you can turn it on and off for each piece of content on the site (Both forum content and the new sections)

Click to turn on

Name:  watchbutton.gif
Views: 146
Size:  7.8 KB

Click to turn off

Name:  unwatchbutton.gif
Views: 148
Size:  7.8 KB

Once you "watch" an item it will be added to your FEED and you have the option of getting email notifications or not when someone posts a reply or ads a review.

We will be tweaking things a bit as we move forward but for the most part that is it. Hopefully it's an simple tool that helps make the site easier to use.

Let me know if you have any questions.
