Presently we don't, there is no email notification of responses. And that's why you can't see it in the Forum settings!

Ok-cool, sorta - could yall add that? its easy to forget what / where you posted if you on on 10 diff forums.

-also, i tried to add my System Profile in preferences and it said it did it, but i am not seeing that on posts-is it hidden?

There's been a lot of discussion about email notifications. Seems that there's a small group who want it very badly, and most of the rest don't care a bit about it. I'm in neither group, as i would find it an extreme annoyance and would be certain to either turn it off if i could, or use a separate email address that i merely trash and never read.

Your system information is in your profile. Click on your handle in one of your posts and you'll see it. There's no reason to have it displayed with every post you make.

i understand both points, its just if you are on alot of support forums, it is easy to loose track and quite helpful to be reminded optionally, of course.

You're not an idiot....can't be as certain about the people who are opposed to the OPTION of getting email notifications, though.
