    It says spy, and I'm really curious. It looks like it has something to do with subscriptions, or maybe not.
    Anyone used it before or got any ideas?

    Very good question Galeskies, I have never noticed SPY before.
    It looks like it is to do with subscriptioons.
    I don't even know what subscription mean to be honest LOL.
    There are lots of things in the forum I don't use because I do not know what they do.:redface:
    By the way, how do paste and copy a page from a forum?

    Well... I had a bit a difficulty uploading the image. No idea why it was so difficult. I tried JPG and PNG. Anyway for getting an image of the forum I used the "Prt Sc" button on my keyboard. Also known as print screen. Essentially it takes a picture of the entire screen, and copies it onto your clipboard. From there you have to find a place to paste the image and save the file. I used MS Paint.

    The subscription tools are really useful. They help me keep track of the threads I've posted in, or simply the threads I like to read. This image shows the important links for that.

    any idea why this function actually exists on a keyboard in general?
    About the subscritpions, isn't there usually a little sign next to a thread that says you have posted in it?
    About SPY I am guessing it is indicative of its meaning which is to 'follow' someone else's threads or posts?!
    Just a guess.

    I don't think it seems to be functioning properly however, the spy function is rather cool. It basically updates all new posts in real time :)
