Every web forum I know of send notification email to the original poster

Well now, that's *very* interesting! I clearly haven't used forums in too long, I've never seen this. It still doesn't help with a forum analog of this conversation, though, since I didn't originate this thread.

With that in mind there is no real difference between traditional mail
lists and web forums for the majority of end user support questions.


In the web forums I've used it has *not* been the default. In other words I've had to remember to tick the box to get automatic mail notifications. But that's a once-only thing as far as *my* questions are concerned; you do it when you register. I don't *know* but I suppose it could be set as the default behaviour when the forum is initially established.

In a different thread I suggested that registering LibreOffice automatically registers you for the Forum and, in addition, a Support button on LibO's toolbar takes the registered user directly to that forum with the "automatically send me e-mail answers" option pre-set. If the user didn't register LibO then that Support button simply displays text about registering and getting support.
