If you are a user in Sun Java Forums, then you would know that there is a feature called "Start watching topic" in these forums. This will send you an e-mail (to the email address that a user would have specified in his/her profile) whenever a new reply is included for that particular topic (thread). I think this feature should DEFINITELY be included in these Java Ranch forums as well.

Its so easy for a registered user to monitor any particular topic (or thread) that he/she is interested in or he/she has posted a reply if an e-mail is sent whenever the topic is updated with a new reply!

I think Java Ranch forums would be much much better if this E-Mail alert feature is included.
