The only way to do it would be to subscribe to every thread (new and old, there must be thousands and thousands of them by now). I don't doubt it is possible, but I'm wondering if I missed an option or something that makes reading the WOG by email more practical than it appears.

Thanks.
This is a copy of your User Profile that Administrators can see and when you joined you chose "Do not subscribe", I can try and change it to any other option shown, just let me know which one.

John, that is also something that a member can change on their own in the UserCP, but it only applies to threads in which they have posted.

It is possible to subscribe to threads in which you did not post, but not automatically, and there is no universal subscription available to members, only mods and admins.

Now it seems we want to crack down on Forum members because someone might decide to delete his old posts or someone might create some mischief in the future.

Isn’t that one of the reasons for keeping the Forum server backed up on a regular basis?
I agree with you, John, about the utility of being free to edit or delete our posts, and I'm surprised that it is becoming suspect.

vBulletin does keep track of posts that have been edited--there's a little status line at the bottom of each post where that info is displayed. Too bad it doesn't have an option to display 'changes' when reading a post that has been edited. Like a word processor has a toggle to view changes--deleted text appears as strike-through text. I know it vBulletin can display strike-through

This kind of wistful thinking usually leads to a suggestion that I write the code for the feature I want. But in the case of 'edit and delete my posts', the features are already in the software, so why not turn it on?

I don't know but editing and deleting MAY have caused problems I'm not aware of. Has it? Anyone know?

We have our reasons which will remain private to the administration and I think we have discussed this enough already, I still stand by my earlier post and that will have to be enough.

I am one that agrees with the house rules of this Forum.
This is the reason the Forum members are still co-operative, contribute a vast amount of the knowledge & skills,
all for free, to help others, and for fun.
Thanks to the signature, photo, spam, & content etc. police.
I have seen several good forums collapse because of egos & know it all's.
