My "Re-entry"

Hello everybody once more. I would just like to tell you that I joined this wonderfully sensible website Skepcop many months ago but gradually fell away from frquenting it because of the time it took to attend to my contributions to other websites. You might ask why I spent most of my time with those sites and eventually none with Skepcop. That question is valid and the reason is that with other websites I have had to deal with answers to my postings and other people's follow-up postings. May be I am getting to old for this sort of thing and have not been able to find out how I can receive notifications of answers to my postings on Skepcop forums. If I receive no such notifcations then I must assume that nobody has answered me. At first I scanned through the forums to which I had written to see if anyone was interested in my postings but seeing no answers, lost momentum on those subjects and tended to check back ever less frequently. Today, I was checking through my "log-ins" file and discovered that my user-name and password is still valid. Goody goody! I have again seen what a really intelligent and fascinating website Skepcop is and have decided to ask somebody/everybody how I can be sure of getting a notification of replies to my questions or statements as I do on other websites. Please, somebody, tell me what I should do next. :| ;)
P.S. I will check back to this forum in a day or two just to see if anyone has answered this posting. :D

Just hit "subscribe" at the bottom of the page. I think you should be notified of replies.

Welcome back Lonecat. Being a Mod I should know the answer to your question, but since I have to look over just about every post on this forum, I've never tried the notifications or subscription options. I have used the 'search' box at the top right hand corner when looking for a specific post. You can try typing in your Lonecat ID and it should only bring up posts that you have commented on and posts from others that contain your ID from response.

Meanwhile, Arouet seems to have the best solution.

Welcome back!

After I log in, I just hit "View My Posts" and go from there. I couldn't imagine getting a notification everytime someone replies to me. I get enough e-mails as it is...

Thanks all you beautiful people for your replies and so prompt! :o They are all very useful. I have just checked back before dashing off some lunch. I'll be back soon, too, to try applying your suggestions. ¡Hasta pronto! :)

Just before I left for a late lunch I tried clicking on subscribe to topi and got a response saying I had just suscribed to being notified of any reply. Thanks to you, Arouet!

No problem. By the way, I've set a shortcut button for the "view active topics" page. Let's me see activity on all new posts.

Uh-oh! Is that real short cut or yet another complication? :mrgreen: I tried answering your post yesterday but was told my password was wrong. I have just tentatively tried again and now it is accepted. :roll: So what is this short cut button? :)

Not sure what the problem is. My shortcut is: search.php?search_id=active_topics
