Hi everybody,
Is it possible to have an e-mail sent to anybody who is interested in a particular forum (or maybe just the moderators)- on a new post in that forum? I am sure this will reduce the average response time greatly.

They do have digests for the Programmer Certification forum, but if you want to moniter a conversation or a different forum I think you're out of luck. I think that whenever you post a message, even if it is a response and not a question, there should be a checkbox to receive email when there are more posts.

Yeah, that's true. And somebody might be interested in answers to a particular question too. Like I might see a question I am very interested in, but don't know enough about to answer. Shouldn't I be able to monitor the progress in such a case?

Maybe this is to simplistic but:
At the Saloon main page, there's a clickable that reads:
'Click here to view Todays active Topics (all public forums)'.
This lists all forums and all messages that are dated today. I use this all the time to check if a particular topic I'm interested in has received any new posts.
