What does "Jingles for" and "subbing" mean?

I've seen these terms used and have no clue what they mean.

If someone could enlighten me?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Jingles are requests for well wishes. Not all of us pray but we can all send good thoughts or prayers or warm fuzzies or whatever positive vibes we like to send.

Subbing means subscribing to the thread. This puts the thread in a view in your control panel where you can more easily follow it and you can also get email notifications if you're set up to receive them. I think of you're on a computer that you don't need to post to subscribe to a thread (under thread tools?) but I'm usually on mobile so I couldn't tell you for sure offhand.

Hm you don't happen to be a farm in the MD/VA area do you? I sometimes pass by a red gate farm and they have a bright red gate at the end of their driveway.

Thank you!

I'm not in MD/VA area, I'm in Alberta, Canada. It's stated on my status line. I also have a red gate at the end of my driveway, thus the name

The status line doesn't show on the mobile version, such as posting from a phone.

Everytime you post on a thread, you're automatically subscribed. If you don't want to follow the thread anymore you can "unsubscribe" from your User CP area.

"Jingles" is slang for asking people to shake their horse bells and brasses, to make them jingle. Horse bells are believed to have attracted good luck; protected against disease, injury and evil.

You can set preferences in the User CP. Go to the column on the left and under the heading Settings & Options, choose Edit Options. That will bring up the various things you can do and choices you can make. I choose no email notifications for posts, I just come here and click on the USER CP and all my subscribed threads with new posts pops right up.

Now that I'm on a computer.. you don't need to post to a thread to subscribe. I have that setting turned off in my CP. Towards the top of the thread you will see "thread tools" and you can subscribe to a thread there.
