Occasionally there is a high level of activity in the debate forums, and it can be difficult to keep up with everything. There are several ways to keep track of new posts, but the easiest way to do so is to subsribe to the forum and/or thread that you are interested in. This way you will also be able to decide if you want to receive notifications when something new has been posted in the forum, and how often you should receive notifications. You can subscribe to several forums and threads at the same time, and easily quit your subscription.
Below we describe the procedure for subscribing to forums and threads, as well as how to administer them. Please get in touch if you encounter any problems with this function: firstname.lastname@example.org

You will now be taken back to the forum, and the button "follow this forum" has been exchanged for one saying "unfollow this forum". Should you choose to discontinue your subscription, you click that button.
You are free to follow as many forums as you should wish, and you can easily keep track of your subscriptions by clicking the link saying "content I follow", which appears when you click on your own name in the top right corner:
The process of subscribing to a new topic or thread is similar to the one outlined above.
To administer the topics you follow you can find an overview over your subscriptions under "Content I follow".
