  • TIP: Use e-mail notification

    If you're in a particular hurry for an answer, or simply want a reminder to check back, check the "Email Notification" box. You'll get an email anytime someone replies to your post.

    You can even be notified for replies to posts you didn't make. Just click on the "Receive Updates to this Thread" link at the bottom of every thread.

    If your post turns out to be way too popular, you can turn off notification in your User CP (control panel).

    If you'd rather not feed the...

    Did you know you could subscribe to individual forums and get daily or weekly summaries of what posts were made? You can't reply via email, but it's still pretty handy.
