Hello everyone,

You may have noticed the new 'Add to my Watched Threads' option below the text box when you post or reply to a thread. Ticking this box means that we will send you an email notification when someone replies to the thread. We will only send you an email if you have not visited the thread since the reply within an hour, this way, you will not receive unnecessary notifications from us.

Ticking this box also means that the thread will be added to your 'Watched Threads' which you can see by clicking on the link under Tools on the left hand side.

You can choose to always have this box ticked or un-ticked by visiting 'My Account' and changing your preferences under 'Email Preferences'. We hope you find this functionality useful.
