How To: Get an email about new thread
 
A few of you at the annual meeting were asking how to set it up so that you get an email when someone starts a discussion about something, for example where the next flying is taking place.

1. Click on Forums and navigate into a sub-forum from which you'd like to receive notification.

2. Click on Subscribe to This Forum

3. Select how often you would like to receive the email

4. You're done. Just make sure the email address in your profile is current ;-)

For those of you who are like me and follow visual guides better than written directions:

You'd sign up for each category, for example General Discussions or Club News.

I can't see where it's possible to have new posts emailed to you rather than just a notice something has been posted. Did I miss it?

See where it says "Thread Tools" just slightly up and to the right?

Click on that, then "Subscribe to this thread".

After that you will receive an email when someone replies to this thread.

In a similar fashion, if you'd like to receive an email when any new thread is posted in a whole category, for examle in "General Discussion", you'd navigate to that particular category and in the same spot click on "Forum Tools" then "Subscribe ..."

Got it, thanks. So my only option is to get a daily update and not as they come in?

I believe for the Forum Category (ie General Discussion) it's daily or weekly, for individual thread subscription it's instant, daily or weekly.

What I recommend, and I think it will work for 99% of you, is not subscribe at all, and just come to the website at your convenice and click "New Posts" in the navigation bar at the top. You will get a list of all the new posts since your last visits. Yes, YOUR last visit.

Why get home, sit down at your computer and have 20 emails cluttering your inbox to go through and then get on the website and go through the posts you're not subscribed to anyway, when you can just pull them with 1 click and know you're not missing any?

Know what I mean?

Yep, took your advise and unsubscribed from everything. The "new posts" button is the way to go. thanks

and nice job on the site. the more look around, the more I like it...
