Mentioning a member in an topic makes it so they automatically follow the topic.

Note: While the requestee, assignee and mentioned members get set as follower the same does not go for members of teams that are set as requestee, assignee or are mentioned in the topic.

Manually following

If someone has made an topic that has little to do with you but you are interested and would like to see how it develops you can follow the topic.
