I'd like to subscribe to a forum, in my case the one for the town where I live, so that I can help people who post questions about town. That makes me a good resource as I know the place well.
I can't find a way to subscribe to a forum such as this however. I can only subscribe to a post UNDER the forum topic and unless I visit the site every day (not gonna happen) I'll never know someone is asking for help.
Please don't suggest a news feed. That's an excuse, not a solution.
