Go click "user CP" in the far left of the black tool bar above. Then on the next page scroll to the bottom and click "All subscribed threads" on the bottom right below the list shown. That should give you a list of everything you have looked at and posted to.

When you post it will not show up until someone answers or posts something on your question or comment. If you want to view your post then do the above advice and you can see it and how many have viewed it. Hope this helps as I was confused too at first wondering if I did it correctly. And that is why, if you will notice, a lot of first posters post the same thing twice. Not sure why it is like that, which is a question to the moderators.

You got it right. If you post up a question/thread, it will not pop up in your subscriptions unless someone replies.

Sorry, we as Staff have no control over that, that lies in the programming.

This drives me crazy. lol But it does say "new posts", and it really does do what it says it does.

vbulletin does have a "recent posts" plugin though. That would fix all this confusion.

Hey wait... Tools/Live Feed does the same thing as "recent posts" would.

But this morning I posted a reply to my own thread and then a message flashed that it would not be seen until approved by a moderator. Could that be what's really the issue?

Sounds like your IP address could be an issue for some reason, or if you are including an external link to something. I think they have spam filters in place and if for some reason it doesn't like your IP address it might do this and need overriding to tell it you are OK. This happens sometimes with all spam filters once in awhile.
