I have looked through all the forum settings and would like to know how to get notifications of new replies to any topics I start..
Now I have to keep checking back on the forum to see if any new replies have been posted.

Is it possible?

Hi Banyarola,

Sorry there is no emailservice to notify you, but you can use RSS feeds and on the main forumpage you can look under 'topics I've participated in' or 'topics I've started' to get a quick view of what's new for you :)

Thanks...

I belong to several sites with forums and they all have email notifications...
Is there a reason this one doesn't?

It sure would make life easier if it did..

Maybe ...
But this way people keep coming back, which has definitely added to the communityspirit here :)))
Just pop in on a regular basis and you'll soon find out!

(btw. I added the link to 'topics I've participated in' on my homepage, so it's only one click away, maybe an idea for you?)

Well Sarah, I guess that's one way of looking at it..
But, I tend to visit forums more when I can subscribe for notifications to topics I am interested in because if I don't check for a few days I tend to ignore most of the new posts because there are so many of them..

Either way, it's a good forum and very enlightening....
