You can get email notices about a thread if and only if you start the thread. Look just under the text box where you type your message for a checkbox to be notified.

If you're a Java geek like me, you can try writing a simple program that periodically sniffs for changed pages. Or even better, let it accept a list of URLs and run checks on the entire set. Just check the revision date on the page.
If you just want a readymade solution, browse through the freeware sites and I'm sure you will find some page sniffers.
