You could add it to your QuickBar and then manually monitor.

Wow... this would be a very VERY nice feature.

I didn't realize it didn't exist.

You can only subscribe to the ones you create.

If you are following a monthly-type geeklist (like new to you games, photo contests, etc.), you can request the author create a companion thread that you subscribe to and when they add a new list, they also post, which would notify you.

But as far as keeping a tab on geeklists that you run across, there is no way to subscribe to it. Besides the suggestion of adding a link to the Quickbar, the more appropriate thing to do is click on "Add favorite" when you are on the geeklist (located in the header where you can add items and comments). Then you can access those under "GeekLists -> Favorites" at the top of every page. That is how I keep on eye on my favorites.

Dang ding nabbit drat farking drib!

How long have I been here? And how long has it taken me to understand some of this stuff?

Wow. That's just awesome! Yay! I wish I'd realized this eons ago, back when the planet was covered in water...

Thanks!

Semi-useful, but nowhere near the same functionality.

Subscribing to GL's is something a very common request for a long, long time.

Sorry, I am not advocating substitutes, just helping with an option while they work on it. I really don't understand why it can't be set up as I can subscribe to my own Lists.

I know you weren't suggesting it as a replacement. And I apologize if my reply implied that.
