Is there a way to keep track or revisit threads that you have started? I have "lost track" of a couple of discussions I have started and wish to read again. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong while I look for them or if there is just something I am missing.

What I have done for quite some time now is click the track link and wait until it says "stop tracking" I do that even for the discussions I doubt that I'll ever use, like discussions on pumps or cgms. I like to "read the mail" in all discussions, because I have the potential to learn A LOT that way. And sometime a post will pop up in those types of discussions that I might be interested in commenting on.

To track that many discussions, (when I cme back from supper tonight I had 33 discussions waiting for me). I click on the link in your profile "only tracked items" and check the box "Show only unviewed tracked items "

When I go through all the unviewed tracked items I click on the discussions link on the upper left of the page. I then find the "newest" link on the middle of the page and click on each discusion (at least the things you want to see.) when that discussion page comes up then you click on the link at the bottom of the first posting "track" amd then wait for the "stop tracking" to come up. (Sometimes the track doesn' t work right away) You can then comment on the posting or move on to the next discussion that may interest you.

To find a discussion you have posted on, you can click on the "discussions" link on the upper left. On the right side of the page tjere's a rectangular text box with a green magniyoug glass icon on the right. Type the subject or words from the title, or even part of the discussion & you will generally get several pages of results. You'll need to sort those manually. But you should find many occurrancws of the search term on the discussion. Hopefully you'll eventually find what you're looking for.

I pray this has been helpful to you.

Thank you - this was very helpful. I knew there was something I was not doing and that somebody out there had a method for how they do things.
