Notification and Mailinglist
There are two tools in order to save you the trouble of continually checking the forum for new messages:
Go to the Notification & Mailinglist page by clicking
in the forum menu.
You can subscribe to email notifications for a thread (message and all its replies) by clicking on Notify of replies at the beginning and end of the thread screen.
Similarly you can subscribe to a whole board by clicking Notify of new posts in the thread list.
Third, you can subscribe to thread when you post a message or reply to a message in that thread, or when you start a new thread. Simply check the Notify of replies option at the bottom of the message entry form.
Boards and threads that you subscribe to have the notification icon next to them.
To unsubscribe, go to the Notification & Mailinglist page by clicking Notification in the forum menu. Check all boards and topics you want to unsubscribe from and hit the Update Settings button.
