How to get an immediate alert when you have a reply...

Post by Elphaba_Thropp » Tue Apr 02, 2013 9:56 pm

Hey guys,

Is there a box I can tick for an alert to be sent to my email immediately when I get a reply to one of my threads/a thread I have been on/a private message? Thanks!! :) xx

If you go to your User Control Panel (upper left of the screen) and click on Edit Global Settings in the lefthand menu, there you will find the facility to receive private messages and to be alerted when one comes in. If you then click on Edit Posting Defaults (the next option down in the lefthand menu), the last check box is the one for being notified when someone replies to your thread.

I'm not sure if you get a notification for a thread you have been subscribed to (posted in), or if it's simply ones you have started, as I don't use this facility. Jo, or anyone, do you know?
