Due to popular request, we just rolled out something new we think you'll like –Notifications.
The new feature enables users to be notified by email of new blog posts, forum topics, or comments. Members can subscribe to either individual items (e.g., all the activity on a specific forum topic) or all new activity of a particular type (e.g., ALL forum activity). You'll see the option for receiving notifications just below each blog post or forum topic.
Once you've subscribed to a particularly item, you can modify your subscription by visiting your Profile and selecting the Notifications tab.
By default, notifications are sent out once a day. However, you can modify the frequency of notifications in your Profile. You can also choose to have your notifications sent in a single email (digest). You'll find a number of other options (e.g., automatically subscribing to any forum topic you post) in your Profile Notifications tab as well.
[Note: It's annoying and needs to be fixed, but the site doesn't currently make a great distinction between Blog Posts and Podcasts. It's confusing, but for now, subscribing to Podcast notifications will include Blog Post activity as well.]
We hope this change proves useful.
