Sorry Talon, but that subscribe change is a really bad news. Pretty stupid that I can't add a thread to my subscribed topics just because I started it and some people might point farm. I've already got some threads that I've started in my subscribed topics and it's really useful having them there so it's annoying not to ever be able to add any more.
I agree with this. I subscribe to my own official threads such as my Pokemon one so I can always quickly go back to it when ever big news drops to update the OP.
It would be much more of a hassle if I had to manually go looking for it myself each time, especially if it's no longer in the "recent" section of my buddy.
