    How many of us click on a thread that has been updated, hoping to read something new and interesting and are greeted with a previously unread post that says nothing more than "Following", because a member wants to keep track of a particular thread and doesn't know the proper way to do it?

    For those members who make those noncontributory time wasting posts, this thread is for you. You can simply click on "watch thread" in the upper right hand corner of the screen on any thread rather than making an irrelevant post to the effect of "Following" which bumps the thread to the top of the forum for no good reason.

    You're welcome.

    If you are posting from your phone and you don't see the "Watch Thread" link, then try rotating your phone 90 degrees and view the site in landscape view. Same for the "post edit" button which at least for me is not visible if I'm holding the phone in the typical orientation.

    :popcorn::popcorn: Also let’s try to refrain from not addressing the question or point of the thread. So many threads here will ask something along the lines of “ Need advice regarding .... and usually within the first response or 3 will be a reply .... I’ve never been to (or used ) .... Totally worthless response! ......

    Reminds me of those Amazon questions and answers. There can be dozens of useful answers regarding a question someone has asked about a product they have purchased or want to purchase, but there's always a couple in there to the effect of "I don't know, never tried it". Seriously what are these people thinking?

    I know this thread has a topic but could we talk about something else?

    I started a thread about inertia in diving but it didn’t seem to gain any momentum.
