The settings regarding notifications can be adjusted while editing your profile.
Access your profile by either clicking on your forum user ID or selecting it from the Navigation bar that appears at the top of the screen.
Once in your profile, click on the "edit profile" button and then select the "notifications" tab.
Most members will see the following notification types and have the ability to turn forum and email notifications on or off for each:
New Thread - New threads are created New Post - New posts are created Like - Someone likes your post Quote - Someone quotes your post Tag - Someone tags you in a post Follow - Someone follows you Friend - You become friends with someone Group Request - Someone requests to join a group you lead Group Join - Someone joins a group you lead Group Added - Someone adds you to their group Badge - You are involved in badge-related activities (badges aren't used on TSF) Bookmark - A thread you have bookmarked is updated Participated - A thread you have participated in is updated Personal Message - You receive a personal message Staff Warning - You are warned by the staff Mass Email - Staff send an email to all forum members
By checking the applicable "Forum" box, you will receive notifications of those occurrences when you are signed in to the forum.
You have several options regarding the receipt of email notifications that may be set using the associated pull-down menus.
The notification settings you select apply across the entire forum unless you have opted to override your notification settings for specific boards.
This describes each of the email notification options:
Smart - only emails you once per item on the forum until you've viewed the item you're being notified about. So if you were notified about a thread you wouldn't receive any further updates about that thread until you visited the forum and viewed the thread.
Instant - emails you every time a notification is triggered.
Daily - only emails you once per day for all of the day's notifications.
Weekly - only emails you once per week of all the week's notifications. A week is Monday thru Sunday.
