    What does the watch option thread or messages mean please? Threads mean I get an alert for new threads, but not replies to those threads. I want new threads and all replies notifications, if so do I pick the Messages option when watching? Thanks

    You will only receive a single alert until you visit the thread and read the latest posts.

    It is not possible to receive alerts for every single post in a thread without visiting it.

    Sorry I know that, I mean what is the difference in those two options really?

    Threads are new threads. Messages means any new message, be it a new thread or reply.

    @Daniel Hood released a paid add-on this morning if you're interested: Persistent Alerts.
