Can't "subscribe to this topic"

When I click this link from a thread, I get a a page saying:

“Bad request. The link you followed is incorrect or outdated.”


Thanks. Yes. I did pass this on to Mark last month after daBee reported the same problem, but I’ve not heard anything back. It’s one of a number of bugs Mark inherited when he took over this site a couple of years ago. I’m sure it’s on his list of things either to fix or to render irrelevant with new site software.

Got it, thanks!

Hello. Four months since the original post, this bug is alive and well. ???

I’m now worried that I won’t be notified of replies to my recent post without having to remember to check manually. Are we automatically subscribed to topics that we start, the way it works in some other forums?

FYI, I am getting email notifications for topics I’m subscribed to from

I think this is a new thing
