    Also, the default for getting notifications on threads you post in is notifications to your Control Panel. If you want emails, you'll probably need to go in and change that in the giant list of settings.

    Good question -- I'm not sure if it's saved locally or on the server.

    OK, I have looked and maybe it is just too early but I can't find the "spoiler" button. I have seen people use the function I just can't figure it out. :$

    not quite sure where to put this...I saw something about clearing cookies to help with logging out issues before...I did that, but anyway, besides the "remember me" setting which I would like to avoid using is possible, is there any way to keep from getting automatically logged out after short periods of time? I was just logged out in the time it took me to skim the annual report, I didn't think it was all that much time.

    That's a backend-only feature here; if you need to know the users in a particular group, send me an email and I'll copy the list for you.

    Ummm, I used to get notified when I had a PM or when someone posted in a thread I was in. I can't figure out how to turn that on in the new boards.:scratch

    Help, please?

    I turned on notify of PMs, but can't find email thread changes

    Jedere: Go to Settings in the top right menu. Then find General Settings.

    Under General Settings there is a topic called Messaging and Notification. Go to "Default thread subscription mode", click on the down-arrow beside the box, and pick the option you want. If you want it to tell you instantly when someone has replied to a thread you have written in, choose "Instantly, using email".

    Um was a novice on here but it didn't transfer over. Now I can't do anything including click on Lillian Sedai's name to send a PM to get my novice back. I have not had regular access for a month to the internet. Please help!

    Okay, I'm truly sorry if this is posted somewhere else, but I've looked and can't find it, or have forgotten where it was. Is there an egosearch option? How do I see a list of all the threads I'm posting in? (Not subscribed to, which, if I understand correctly, is a different thing.) THANKS

    There's a Search option, upper right side directly below the banner. It can be found here: http://www.tarvalon.net/search.php

    Pick the options you want and go with it.

    Re: editing a thread title... my movie nights thread in Local Events, I followed the instructions edit/go advanced, and its changed on the first post, but not in the thread title when you are looking at the threads in that forum. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    I've noticed that, too, Xy. I've edited the title for you for now. I suspect editing thread titles is a mod-only priveledge.
