What is the difference between "Bookmark" and "Watch"? "Bookmark" is prominently displayed on the upper right of the topic, but "Watch" is shown at the bottom. Also, there is no way to find out the topics I am watching. [originally posted on jforum.net by sru]
You're notified every time a new post is added IF you already read all messages. So, when you read a topic, a flag "is_read" is set for you user, and when a new message is sent, you're notified. In the meanwhile, if new messages are posted, but you didn't read the topic since the last notification, you won't receive new notifications until you read.
We do this to not spam you.
