Hey all, welcome back to another forum tutorial which I will showing and guiding members on how to sort your threads properly. Most of this is only recommended, some areas are completely up to you. Anyway without further discussion, lets begin:
A Guide to Managing Threads
Watching, tracking, normal, mute
First up its time to get this section straight. When using these utilities it enables what you wish to view and keep track of. Its extremely important since it helps manage your unread and what you recieve notifcations about.
