Actions you can be notified about, and choosing how to be notified

The forum software allows you to receive notifications on the forum with the built-in notification system, as well as receive notifications via email if you choose to do so. To setup your forum notifications, as well as to view which types of notifications are available, click the Profile button found in the top menu bar of the forum, and then click the Edit Profile button on your profile page. You'll then be taken to the Edit Profile & Settings page; once here, click on the Notifications tab.

On the notifications page, you'll see a set of checkboxes separated into two columns. Checking the boxes in the left column will allow you to receive forum notifications to the option you have checked, and checking the boxes in the right hand column will allow you to receive an email notification to the option you have checked. You can choose to receive both forum and email notifications for certain actions if you wish. Below is a list of notifications you can choose, and what you can expect:

when someone likes your content - With this checked, you will receive notifications when someone has liked a post that you have made on the forum.

when someone quotes you - A notification will be received when someone has made a reply to you with a quote of a post you have made on the forum.

when someone tags you - If someone has tagged you in a post (using @username), you will receive a notification along with a link to the post that you were tagged in.

when someone follows you - When a member has followed your profile activity, you'll receive a notification letting you know which account on the forum has followed you.

when someone becomes your friend - If you are following a member and they follow you back, you will become friends on the forum. When this happens, you will receive a notification letting you know.

when a new registration is pending approval - This notification option will be available if you have a member account that's part of a staff member group. If you have restricted registrations enabled in the forum settings, this will allow you to be notified when someone has created a new account on the forum and is pending approval.

when a new member joins the forum - This notification option will be available if you have a member account that's part of a staff member group. This allows you to be notified when a new forum account has been created.

when a user requests to join a group you lead - If you have been designated as a leader of a member group on the forum, this will allow you to receive a notification when another member of the forum has requested to join your member group.

when a user joins a group you lead - If you have been designated as a leader of a member group on the forum, this will allow you to receive a notification when a member has joined your member group.

when you are added to a group - This option allows you to be notified when you have been added to a member group on the forum.

when a bookmark is updated - If you use the forum bookmarking system, this allows you to be notified when a topic you have bookmarked has been updated.

when a thread you have participated in is updated - If someone posts in a thread you had previously posted in, you'll receive a notification. If the notification is sent by email, you will receive at most one email per day containing a list of all updated threads.

when you receive a Personal Message - This allows you to be notified when someone has send you a new message on the forum. This will work for both new conversations that have been created for you, or has replied to an existing PM conversation with you.

when there are reported posts - This notification option will be available if you have permission to view reported posts on the forum. With this option checked, you will be notified when a new report has been filed, or when another staff member of the forum has replied to an existing report.

Apart from the above, there is one last option on the page that will allow you to specify whether or not you would like to receive mass emails sent by a staff member. Once you have made your selections, click the Save Notification Settings button to complete the process.

If you have chosen to receive forum notifications, how you will be notified depends on the type of notification you have chosen. Forum notifications are presented to you with bubbles that appear over certain buttons found in the top menu bar of a forum. For example, when someone sends you a new PM on the forum, a bubble will appear with the number '1' listed within it to let you know that you have one new PM waiting for you. These notification bubbles can appear above the Admin, Profile, Bookmarks, and Messages buttons in the top menu bar. Directly clicking on the notification bubbles generally takes you to the area of interest where you can learn more about the specific notification.



Notification Frequency - Only Applies to Emails

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.

Never - never receive an email notification.

teetop: that though the death toll seems high, I would suggest you look at the numbers a little closer. Take note as to how many are dying with complications from something else. And secondly, the death toll is nowhere near the number incurred in 1918, [/b May 14, 2020 16:25:54 GMT -7
teetop: from the Spanish Flu. Secondly, Christ spoke about these very things, Matt. 24 May 14, 2020 16:33:19 GMT -7
Amymine712: You got it Tee! May 15, 2020 18:25:27 GMT -7
Dominic: Yes, I am reminded that Jesus spoke of plagues in the end times. I think the COVID-19 meets that criteria. May 21, 2020 15:43:10 GMT -7
teetop: Notice anything strange about this supposed plague. Have you taken the time to research how many deaths have been caused by COVID-19 alone? Good luck. Jun 8, 2020 10:38:20 GMT -7
teetop: The real problem lies in who is going to gain the most from this country shut down? There are many things that have to happen in society to usher in the Antichrist. We know that many doors have to be opened to the world for the whole world to turn. [/ Jun 8, 2020 12:19:11 GMT -7
Amymine712: Glad to see you are awake and aware Tee. I pray you are well. Jun 9, 2020 18:02:19 GMT -7
Will: Yes agreed Covid is basically fake, a biological war attack on liberty, straight from Communist China. Have a look at what Ron Paul says about it at ronpaulinstitute.org/. He talks good sense! Jun 9, 2020 20:31:42 GMT -7
teetop: Well, good to see we are still at work. My wife & I were talking about our situation being separated after 25+-years-of-marriage. The question, 'Was it God's will? We are beginning to think so. Maybe I need to do a different style post on this topic.[/b Jun 10, 2020 1:05:36 GMT -7
Dominic: I believe in the vaccine for flu and also one hopefully for corona. It's sad to me that there are so many Christians who feel the opposite. I understand the end times and Anti-Christ and one world governmetn but I also know Pastor who go the COVID us. Jun 11, 2020 23:51:30 GMT -7
Dominic: www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-52092833 the arcticle of Pastor Mark McClurg and his recovery from COVID-19. Jun 11, 2020 23:55:21 GMT -7
Dominic: I also believe that the coming antichrist will use any means necessary to control everyone since that is already prophesied. vaccine or not. covid or not. the issue is covid is prophesied from Jesus already as plagues in the last days. Jun 11, 2020 23:56:48 GMT -7
Dominic: Hi TeeTop, I don't know if it was God's will for you and your wife to separate. We know God hates divorce but if there is s-xually immorality then according to Matthew 19 Jesus permitted divorce. The wife is also free to forgive but if ... Jun 11, 2020 23:59:00 GMT -7
Dominic: the husband can't stop, then she must do what is right for the family. Husbands do not have the right to hurt their wifes like this and my wife already told me that if I mess up again, she is gone for good because I did over and over mess up. Jun 11, 2020 23:59:54 GMT -7
Dominic: I can't imagine what I can say if I was in your same situation because I'm not. We were separating for a while but we eventually got back together again. Jun 12, 2020 0:00:30 GMT -7
Dominic: Only with Christian Counseling for both of you and God's working in both your lives and repentance can it be done. If that is better then I hope it can work out still. Jun 12, 2020 0:01:27 GMT -7
Dominic: If you want to know more about our story, you can send me a personal message and I'll try to help you out. Please don't get me wrong, I am not saying I am better or recovered but I can share my testimony if you want to hear it. If not, then ok too. Jun 12, 2020 0:02:33 GMT -7
teetop: Hey Dominic, good to see you aboard. As for Mt 19, I would suggest a little closer look. Jun 15, 2020 20:25:29 GMT -7
