I was trying to subscribe to a thread today (I do this to maybe 1 or 2 threads per day), but now there is no option to at the bottom of the screen. Was this feature turned off?

Go into the thread you wish to subscribe to.
Just above 1st post of thread, and to the right, click "Thread Tools".
The 4th option in the dropdown is "Subscribe to Thread".

Other forums that use vBulletin software provide options at both the top and bottom to subscribe to the thread, but DBSTalk only has the option at the top.

One of my first posts when I joined DBSTalk was in this support forum to ask for thread tools to be added at the bottom, but Chris Blount (forum founder) said it would require some hacks to implement ...
