If you watch a forum then you will also get unread discussions from that forum directed to your dashboard.
You may watch general forums or forums at any area. Click the 'Watch' button in the forum to watch a forum. Click the 'Unwatch' button in a forum to stop watching a forum.
You will also watch the forum for an area when you favorite an area. If you do not want to watch a forum for a favorited area then you may 'unwatch' the forum without effecting your favorite.
Watching a forum at any area means you will see discussion updates from any descendent area or any ancestor area. You will not see discussions from sibling areas.
