Then I thought it was to mark what I read but that there were new posts. Then I thought it was to mark a thread I had posted on that had new posts. And then I thought maybe its just to mark a thread I had posted on in general. But then I am searching for a particular thread that I know had a few post from me yesterday and I cant find it at all by going through all the new post pages. I tried scanning for green and then reading titles. I mean after awhile threads can get blurry so I will just search via user name stats. I really thought I was better at this but the other one I use must be super old. Oh and thanks to whomever suggested I try a different browser to edit my avatar. For whatever reason I am only able to make avatar changes using firefox. For everything else I use chrome.
Green check marks are marking the threads that you have "subscribed" to.

only you can see the check marks that you set.

to "subscribe"/ unsubscribe" open the thread in question click on thread tools at the top of that thread then click subscribe or unsubscribe. I use this feature often so that I can locate my own threads easily.

to find all your subscribed threads that you have marked with the green check mark at the top of the page in one of the bars you will see the words my profile. scroll onto that. a window will open, scroll down and click on the word subscription. this will open a page that lists all the threads you have subscribed to.
