I'll try to duplicate this problem again, but I think that sometimes if I have flagged a page as "watch" and go back to this page and type an additional response, the system is converting the discussion back to "unwatch" and I have to click the "watch" word again to keep it on my list. I just noticed this and it could be user error. I'll let you know if it happens again.

Okay this happened several times so know I know it's not just me. I want discussions to stay on my "watchlist" until I click on "unwatch" so I can continue to follow the discussion, even if I replied, too.

I tested this and you're right - the 'Watch this discussion' checkbox is not only not properly adding checked pages to your watchlist, but it's also removing any discussion that is on your watchlist when you reply - even if you have the box checked when you reply. Until we can get this fixed, I suggest you use the tab at the top of the discussions to watch pages, and remember to "re-watch" discussions each time you reply.

The watch feature in the discussion forums should now be working properly. Please let me know if you find any further problems with it.

Thank you!
