I don't see the drop down to subscribe to a board. 

I already mentioned in another post that the "let me know if someone replies" is gone, and a CM did reply to my post.  Yea! 

Am I missing something, or is there no way to subscribe.  My previous subscription got lost in transition.

I can subscribe through some browsers,
Haven't recieved email notifications in over a week (maybe 2 weeks)
Obviously they too are not working again :(

I don't think they're working right now. I know that some people have gotten some notifications via e-mail, but it's not consistent. I know it's on the list, though. Hopefully, those get fixed soon. I miss them too.

**ETA*** I just re-read your question and realized you were asking about subbing to a whole board, not just a thread, DUH. I know that right now there isn't an option to do that but I will check and see if this is "on the list" of features to be built back in.

Yep, there's a way to do it-  here's the thread that gives the instructions:

Unfortunately, like huggs mentioned, they seem to be temporarily broke again. I was receiving notifications quite consistently for awhile but haven't received one in about a week. I'll let you know if I start receiving them again!

Those instructions are for subscribing to individual threads.  Hopefully the ability to subscribe to a whole "folder" or "topic" (or whatever we're calling them now!) will reappear eventually.  It's so nice to know when a new thread has been posted...not just to know when someone replied within a thread.

I lost all of my email subscribe notifications. This has made it very difficult as a CL to know when someone has posted and replied to your board. Hopefully this will get fixed soon. I have lost all my siggies and the "reply" button does not work for me - only the "quick reply".

Funny, I can only reply, and quick reply doesn't work.

I also lost the subscription to my board.  :(   Guess I will just keep checking and seeing if the option comes available again.

Just wanted to say that after not getting any email notifications on threads that I had subscribed to - I got two today!

Of course...both were for posts that were posted October 30th-ish.  But still!  I got two notifications today!

Good news/bad news?
