Xaraya is just one of my tools, and I belong to a lot of forums
(Drupal included). The ability to log in to the forum after a day or
two and see what has been posted recently is very useful. It is also a
good way to increase community participation, as there are folks (like
developers???) who may have the time or energy to help out with new
questions.Subscribing to threads is useful if you are asking a
question and waiting for an answer. Not so useful if you are looking
to help out with others problems.
