You may want to be notified by email whenever someone posts a new message on this Ahimsa Co-op forum. You can do this very easily, at two levels of interest.

New Topic Notifications

1. If you want to be notified of any new threads--or "topics" as they're called in the language of this forum software--created by other  forum members on a particular "folder" (also called "boards"; examples are "Board of Directors", "Finances", and "Leadership"), just click on the folder/board name and then look for the "NOTIFY" button off in the top right-hand corner of the resulting folder listing.

2. When you click on "NOTIFY", you will be asked, "Are you sure you wish to enable notification of new topics for this board?" Click on  "OK" and from that moment on, you will receive emails notifying you whenever someone adds a new topic/thread to that folder/board.

3. If you decide that you no longer want to get notification emails for the folder/board, repeat steps 1 and 2, this time answering "OK" to the question "Are you sure you wish to disable notification of new topics for this board?"

New Reply Notifications

Independently of whether or not you choose to receive notifications of new topics on a board, you can also request to be notified when new replies are posted to existing topics. Here's how you do that.

1. Find the topic/thread you are interested in monitoring. Click on the topic subject and look for the "NOTIFY" button off in the top right-hand corner of the resulting message thread.

2. When you click on "NOTIFY", you will be asked, "Are you sure you wish to enable notification of new replies for this topic?" Click on  "OK" and from that moment on, you will receive emails notifying you whenever someone adds a new message to that topic/thread.

3. If you decide that you no longer want to get notification emails for the topic/thread, repeat steps 1 and 2, this time answering "OK" to the question "Are you sure you wish to disable notification of new replies for this topic?"

It's that simple! Have fun with it!
