E-mail notifications

    Sometimes I do not recieved an e-mail notification for a thread I am subscribed to after it gets to be several posts long.

    I should recieve an e-mail notification every time someone posts on a thread I am subscribed to until I unsubscribe, correct?

    I think you are only supposed to get a notification once when there is a new reply to a thread, until you visit the forum again. It keeps you from having an overflowing inbox if discussion gets active before you can get back to check.

    Personal messages. They are a way to communicate in-forum, without exposing your e-mail address. Left click on a user name, and sending them a PM is one of the pull-down options. Also, in the upper right corner of the screen, you will see a link to your PM mailbox. Finally, in your Control Panel, you can set options to receive e-mail notification of new PMs and of new posts in threads that you have subscribed to.
