nope... well, not really.
did you know that the blog comments actually ARE the forums? through a fair amount of web witchery, they appear how they do.
you can subscribe to a thread/story in THIS
forum and it will let you know when a reply is made. alternately, you can check here on the forums... a link in the upper right "view your posts
" will show a list of threads/stories you've participated in. if you turn on email notification for replies, it very well might let you know of a reply. but of course it will tell you about the carbon copy here on the forums, not link to the blog version.
if it's a dealbreaker, hold tight. we'll be smoothing out the seams between forum and blog posts soon enough.
