Hello fellow GCer's,
One piece of feedback from our recent survey concerned sometimes lost awareness of new Topics. In addition, I think that many of us have lost track of things like new photo challenges (please see Ulana's "Photo Challenge for April" Topic in the Photo Challenges forum).
Awareness can be addressed by subscribing to forums, which is explained in the "How to use this forum" Topic that was linked in your welcome email. After subscribing to a forum, you will be notified by email when a new Topic has been posted. (You can also be notified of replies to individual Topics that interest you by checking/ticking the "Notify me of follow-up replies via email" checkbox at the bottom of every Topic).
To help with this, I have taken the (possibly controversial) action of subscribing all members to the following forums:
- Forum Help and Q&A - this forum
- Photo Critique - the most active forum
- Photo Challenges
- General Discussion
If you do not want these notifications, go to any forum that you'd like to be unsubscribed from and click the "Unsubscribe" link next to the breadcrumbs near the top of the page.
Of, if you are interested in any other forums, go to that forum and click the "Subscribe" link (also next to the breadcrumbs). We currently have five additional forums:
- Photo Sharing
- Photo Excursions/Expeditions
- Reviews - Books, Video Training, Workshops, etc.
- Reviews and Discussion - Photographic Gear - Hardware & Software
- Tests and Technique
Ah, that's because "breadcrumbs" are explained (and shown) in the same help topic that suggested people subscribe to their forums of interest. Breadcrumbs are links that show the path one took to get to a certain page, as you have no doubt deduced 😎
Glad you figured it out.
