Changing Username and Notification Preferences
« on: October 25, 2014, 10:54:17 am »
Hi all, you all might want to take a minute after you've gotten set up with a new password (or a new account), and check out these pages in the User Profile section:;area=account

Change displayed user name or email address;area=notification

Change the "notification" settings to automatically subscribe you to a topic you have posted on, and include contents of the message;area=pmprefs

Check "Notify by email every time you receive a personal message"

You might also want to go to the bottom of each major sub-forum (or at least those you are most interested in) and check the "Notify" option to be emailed when a NEW post is posted on that forum.

I wouldn't check the "allow other members to email me", as it may allow spammers who have registered, but not been discovered as spammers and kicked off, to get email addresses.

Soggy Paws the CSY has been sold but not forgotten!
