    Hi. This is a little thing but it would be great if you could add an alert option to the effect of "alert me when someone responds to a thread I started" rather than to the option that includes that but also includes AND "to thread I reply to."

    My alert box would be non-stop if I got alerts to every thread that I've replied to.

    2 ways that you can do that.

    You can choose to not get any alerts, and then just click on "watch thread" for the threads you create.


    You can choose to be alerted on all threads, and then turn off the alerts on threads you didn't start.

    Unfortunately the option to split the preference into "my threads" and "all replies" would require custom coding. I would also suggest what Joe said, simply unwatch all threads, disable the alert in your user preferences and then when you create new threads just tick the box to watch them. That way you'll only get alerts about replies your threads.
