Is there a way to automatically be subscribed to threads I start?

Control Panel > Edit Options > Default Thread Subscription Mode

This setting decides how your default subscription settings affect all posts you make.

Generally it affects both new threads started by you and replies posted by you so unfortunately you can't have the best of both worlds (auto-subscribe to your own threads while not subscribing to threads you reply to) but that's where the setting is.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks, I found that option but I only want my new threads :(

Which was essentially the same as what I had given with the addition of "click the button that says Threads that I've started" which doesn't add any new subscriptions or alter the way subscriptions are handled :twisted:
