In Google groups there is an option to have the new contents of the forum sent to you in an email each day - is there a similar feature here?

The next forum development I was planning was whenever you post on a thread, there's a "Notify me of new posts" checkbox. So you can "subscribe" to individual threads and get instant notification of new posts.

Wasn't planning on a daily email - the idea had never occured to me. If you think that's something you'd like included, could you email an example of how one of those google emails look and I'll think about how it could work for our forum.

Tracking individual threads via email would be terrific, both for forums (so useful for authors to keep up w/critique) as well as comment threads on the main site, for that matter, though the latter seems less of a priority.

Swimming in both skeptical science and day-job stuff this week - hopefully will get time to get to this next week (although school holidays start this weekend so that's another spanner in the works). Forum will be priority but I should be able to cannabilise code from the forum to use on the blog posts.

Awesome! Whenever it gets going is great, no rush.
