    You can set up alerts, either by email or using the forum's own messaging service, to let you know the latest developments in a discussion.

    To set up alerts, you need go into the forum you are interested in.

    If you want alerts for every contribution to the whole discussion in the forum, click the "Watch Forum" link. It's on the right under the "Post New Thread" button.

    The following dialog box will appear -

    Choose if you want to be notified just when some one creates a new thread "New Threads" or every time a message is posted anywhere in the forum "New Messages".

    Then choose whether you want to be notified by the RSGB Forums' own messaging service or by email. Opting for email will allow you to keep track of the discussion even when you are logged out of RSGB Forums.

    Once you have selected your preferences, click the "Watch Forum" button.

    If you don't want to be notified every time a forum is updated and instead just have interest in a particular thread in a forum, you can set up email alerts just for that thread.

    To set this up, go into the thread you want alerts for, and click the "Watch Thread" link - it's on the right side under the search bar.

    The following dialog box will appear -

    Select "and receive email notifications" to get an email every time there's a new posting in the thread, then click the "Watch Thread" button.
