On the subscription preferences page there are these four options in the right column:

GeekLists
Geeklist Items: Yes No
Comments: Yes No

GeekList Items
Geeklist Items: Yes No
Comments: Yes No

What is the functional difference between the two pairs of seemingly similar subscription options?

As I understand it, they notify you when...

Quote:
GeekLists
Geeklist Items: Yes No


Someone adds or edits an item on a list you are subscribed to.

Quote:
Comments: Yes No


Someone adds a comment to a list you are subscribed to or to any of its items. (It would be good if you could make it so you were only notified of bottom-of-page comments, but I don't think you can.)

Quote:
GeekList Items
Geeklist Items: Yes No


Someone edits a geeklist item you are subscribed to.

Quote:
Comments: Yes No


Someone posts a comment to a geeklist item you are subscribed to.

Alright, lets see if I understand this correctly. If I only want to be subscribed to GeekList items that I posted or commented on, and I don't want to be subscribed to any other items, then I should set my preferences to:

GeekLists
Geeklist Items: No
Comments: No

GeekList Items
Geeklist Items: Yes
Comments: Yes

Correct?

Edit: Okay that's weird, the first pair of options is no longer available.

Yes, No, Yes, Yes is how I have it. If you subscribe to a geeklist it's presumably to see when new items are added to it.

I also auto-subscribe when I post to an item, but not when I post to a list.
