Actually, the store has been up for 8 years, the forums are relatively new. You should
be able to receive an email when someone replies to your posts. So you check 'subscribe topic', though you don't receive an email when a reply is posted? The feature is turned "on"...and I've just "upped" your permissions. Let me know what happens. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can work it out, as I would like you, and others, to be able to utilize this important part of the forums. Thanks!
