What I would like to see is the behavior of previous forum versions - is it possible to set this in the new forum?
Subscribed community: Get one email when a new topic/thread is posted. Don't send emails from replies.
Subscribed topic in a community: do receive emails from replies for the subscribed topic only.
That keeps me informed of new topics, but doesn't flood my inbox with every reply, unless I choose to follow a topic. This was IMO the best feature of the forum, and that made Extreme's forum stand out - it made me actively participate in topics that interested me or where I could try to contribute to the answers.
Can this be set somewhere, and I just don't see it?
