View Your AlertsNext to your username you'll see icons of an envelope and bell - these will allow you to look at your private messages and forum notifications/alerts.
To change your Alert Preferences, simply hover over the bell in your member menu at the top right and click 'Alert Preferences.' From here, you can change what alerts you'll be notified for.
When you're done, be sure to click Save Changes at the bottom!
tip! If you're particularly interested in a specific discussion, you have the ability to add it to your alerts list to be notified each time someone makes a new reply. To do so, go into the thread and click 'Watch Thread' at the top right of the opening post.
