• About the forum

    There are various help topics in the first section (WELCOME) of the forum. Here you can learn how to add a small photo of your self (Avatar) or add an automatic signature to all your messages. Please do not be embarrassed about asking in FORUM SUPPORT what you think are very obvious questions - you'll be surprised how many people will thank you!

    At any time to get back to the main index click on the "Forum " tab or the "back" button of your brower.

Email notifications of new messages

By subscribing to a thread or a forum you can be notified of new messages by email (also alerts on the forum - see the bell icon next to search in the navigation menu)

Subscribing to a thread

Click on the Watch Thread link at the top of each thread.

NB: by default, you are automatically subscribed to any thread you start or reply in. This means you will get email notifications of any new posts in that thread. This option can be disabled in your profile area preferences.

Subscribing to all threads in a specific forum to a Forum

If you would like to automatically receive notifications of new posts/mesages in a forum, for example Noticeboard or Neighbourhood Watch then please subscribe to those forums (AKA "watch" them).

To do this click on the forum name in the forum list here, and then click on the Watch button. We recommend you select "New messages" and email notifications. (You will know when you are watching a forum because the button will have changed to Unwatch


Your email notifications only continue if you visit the thread which the notification refers to. So if you don't visit the thread you won't get further notifications for messages in that thread until you do visit it.
