Can I suggest you try to improve on this feature and perhaps write a small post to tell people how to do it. Also, it's a shame that the forum isn't integrated into the main RS website and also not very well linked from the thousandhuts site either.
Keep up the great work and hope this can become a hub for everyone. Always happy to help too!
The simplest way would be to add a forum announcement telling people how to subscribe to forums they are interested in. The way you do it is to log in, go to the forum you're interested in and then click subscribe at the bottom of the page. You can manage subscriptions in your profile.
Another option is to sign all users up by default to a weekly digest email. There's an extension to do this: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/email_digests/ (this might not work with this version of the forum though).
When you click on any topic the subscribe box is at the bottom of the next page you see.
I ticked it quite a while ago on all the Hut Circle pages but am not receiving email notification of new posts. Have I done something wrong or is it perhaps switched off at your end? I suspect the former!
Will email you soon about Hutters United soon as I need a sounding board and a bit of brainstorming.

This forum is such a great idea but needs a bit more thought to get it used. One of these days I will make it to an annual gathering (difficult living in Shetland) and can discuss it - happy to help out. Forums I run though have fallen to the victim of Facebook too though, not quite sure what the answer to that is.
With my forum (for a club) I have a feature that creates a post on Facebook whenever a new topic is added to the forum, which at least makes sure people visit the forum regularly so it is still used.
