  • You can also change your preferred email address from your profile page.
  • Take a moment to introduce yourself on the introduction topic.
  • Read the category descriptions to see the various places you can post.
  • If you have questions or comments about this site, post it in the Forum Feedback category

Will I get emails about every post?

By default, the forum will email you a weekly summary with all the popular topics and replies.

But what if I like getting an email per post and replying via email?

To update your email settings, go to Email Preferences and Enable mailing list mode. All messages posted to the forum will be sent to you and you will be able to reply through email. If you’d like, you can also mute certain categories so you don’t receive messages from them.
