When I start a topic and someone replies, I get notified, but when I reply for a topic, there's no notify option and I don't have a chance to help them with good response if they have anymore questions. Is there any way I can do this or is it a new feature for enhancement?

This is one of the drawbacks of the bulleting board software that we use( incase you were wondering, we didn't write it ! ). We do have plans for upgrading the software, but I'm not sure if the new version offers this feature.

As I understand, when a person starts a thread, the discussion
in that thread belongs to him/her, so s/he chooses to be
notified or not.
I think if this option is provided in the "Post Reply"
then it would be like forcing someone (who started the discussion) to listen to what I say. In other words,
its like forcing my reply into his/her email. This may
really not be a desired option, IMHO.
You post your reply on the discussion board and assume the
person will read it when s/he needs.
Thats my impression anyways.........

Even now, when I start a thread, I get notified immediately. Only when I've replied to someone and they've asked more questions, I don't get notified. Also it's only an option and so no one will receive unsolicited emails.
Sometimes I find an interesting topic and would like to listen to that. There are so many forums and so many topics, with my normal searching, I may miss that. So, I would like to Add myself as a listener so that I get notified when the topic develops and I don't miss the topic. This is just an idea. I understand it's a 3rd party software and we can't do much.
