Is there anyway I can get sent email notification when people post on threads that ive contributed in like on other forums? I've had a look in "my account" but there is no setting there ? Thanks sorry if this is a stupid question

All sorts of things in the pipeline, but the pipe is proving a very long one.

Re: Email alerts for new posts?

This would be great - as long as it works properly. I sometimes post to a gardening forum and it emails me notifications about two weeks late so is somewhat useless.

I'm always forgetting about post here so email notifications would be fantastic!

I have it turned off on other forums that i frequent -  It's the most annoying feature i've ever come across...

Max, that is purely because if the feature were to be turned on your email system would grind to a halt, burdened by the load. Wink

As would ours, which is why we turned it off ages ago. We *might* give it a go WWLTNS* but I'm not promising anything...

RE: About the new site

I'm a member of many forums and cant live with out email notification. OK exaggeration, but I find it real useful, a vital forum feature for my self at least.

RE: About the new site

Yeah, email alerts to subscribed topics and the ability to view my post/thread history and see when there's been new responses to threads I've posted in is needed really badly here. I'm not a regular here for pretty much that reason.

I came in to post this topic/suggestion myself.

On the AV forums it's only automatically applied if you created the thread, and you can opt out when creating the thread.

Otherwise you manually subscribe to topics you want to receive email alerts for.
