Hey, i was just wondering, if i can watch a topic.

The following is what i am looking for:
1) For a particular topic, there can be an option to watch.
2) When one selects it, whenever someone posts a reply, a mail is sent to that person, intimating about the same.
3) Alternatively, if emailing is a load, then under my profile or in home, can we put a link to display a list of topics i am watching?

We already have the above functionality(point 3) for topics that one replies to. Also, an email is sent to me(if opted for) for all replies sent to the topics i start. So, can it be extended to the above mentioned requirement?

I find it really helpful because sometime i find a topic to be interesting and i would want to follow the replies posted for that topic. But, in the sea of questions on javaranch, it mostly misses out from one's eyes.

Tx. for the reply.
Is it only going to be an email notification or there will be an option to even list all the topics that i am watching?
