    Are there any easy ways to check for replies to your posts? I see you can either 'watch/subscribe' a thread for notification, or you can browse through your posts and manually check for replies, but is there an easy way to check for this, maybe a link such as 'new replies to my posts' which pulls up posts where your post was quoted in the response?
    This would be useful if you had a reply to an older post.
    If this feature isn't available, any suggestions on how you do this would be welcome as well.
    Thanks.

    Hopefully TW Moderators would know?

    People often quote your post when replying. You can look up those by searching on your username.

    It doesn't necessarily indicate if someone's replied to your specific post, but if there's a continuation in a thread you've posted in, it'll show up (if you have auto-subscribe on, which is a forum default, AFAIK) when you click "User CP" (top left corner, under the headers).

    It'll help keep you current on the threads that you've already posted in (assumes you're interested in the threads you've posted in previously).

    Very easy.

    1 - Add your profile page to your favorites or bookmark it or set up a link
    2 - When you go to the forum start in your profile page
    3 - Click Find all threads started by (yourloginname)
    4 - Look for new posts

    If you go back with the back button in your brower you will never loose you new posts indications. You could also open a "Open a new windwo" for each thread you wanted to look at then close when you are done and your original posts page is there for you.
