I'm new to this forum and would like to know how exactly to subscribe to a thread and get an email notification when someone replies to it.

I automatically get emails when someone replies to threads that I've started, but there have been a few others that I've contributed to and I haven't got notifications for them when someone else then posts on them. I always check the Send e-mail notification on reply box when leaving a reply.

Do I also have to select Watch Thread at the top of the page?

Sorry if this sounds like an odd questions; it's just that I'm also on another forum and on that one I get an email notification whenever someone else replies to a thread I've posted on, and to stop that from happening I have to unsubscribe to that thread. I'm still figuring out how this one works.

Thanks.

Yep, you've got it correct. The Send e-mail notification on reply checkbox generates an email when someone directly replies to one of your posts in that thread. If you want email notification of *any* new activity in that thread, not just replies to your posts, you also have to "Watch Thread".
