One more tip: Following a discussion

The conversations on the debate boards can get really long but an easier way to follow a lengthy discussion is... When you are in 'reply' mode you'll see a blue link at the bottom left 'view discussion in a pop-up window' so you can type your message in your first window and look at the discussion separately. Plus if you

Pat - One question for you - In the old format, I had it set up that I would get an e-mail notification anytime someone responded to one of my posts. Now I am not getting those anymore. Is there a way to set that up in the new format? If so, can you talk me through how to find it? If not, can you suggest it as a potential change?

I may not always keep up with every response in every thread I follow, but I at least like to know when someone responds directly to me. Especially if they ask me a question - I don't want to just leave them hanging.
Thanks.

Hi Traci, yes that's available. When you are writing a post, over on the top right you should see a heading 'Subscriptions' with a checkbox under it to Email me when someone replies; check that to get email replies.

They will be sent to the email address associated with this membername (adamsmumma).

i'm still stumbling around with this new format but it IS getting easier..one thing i like about this style is it sort of forces you to stay on topic. outline isn't as easy to tap on like before and the discussion header at the top of each page in a thread is helpful...perhaps we'll less likely see 1000s of posts in one thread, that was often a signal posts were veering way off topic anyway.

Hi Traci, I DO hear you about the 'replies to posts' option and I believe there's investigation into whether we can have the replies to 'just my' posts. This is personally important to me as just a couple of days ago (without thinking it through) I posted in a DYK thread ... lol!
Seriously... I'll keep you all up to date with changes/updates as they unfold.
Talk to you soon :)

The changes that have been made have made it easier and less confusing.
