It would be good (for more participation) if users can subscribe to forums/topics they are interested in. I for one would love to get a daily digest email of new topics posted in the developer section.
I think this will increase engagement a lot.
If you look under your Settings you will find this under the Subscriptions & Notifications tab. Under Subscriptions you will see all of the posts you are subscribed to and under Notifications you have the ability to select to receive a Daily Digest via email. You can also set your preferences so that you automatically subscribe to any post you create or reply to.
Sometimes there is a post that you want to subscribe to but do not want to reply to, in that case if you go to the post and click the ••• and click Subscribe. Hope that helps?
...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
