Turning on the notify
May 12, 2009 8:14am CST
To all the people on my friends list, as I just added someone to my friends list, I noticed that most of my friends notify was on off, now at least I know why I don't get many notices in my email from friends that post on here. I have turned on all the notifies and now hopefully I will have a bunch of emails when I turn the computer on tomorrow morning and open my email. Thank you to the friends that I expect to see something from most days when I open my email. I try to answer as many as I can, I don't post on here much as it seems I dont' have that interesting of a life to make a new discussion of. But be aware that once you add someone you need to make sure they are set up so that you can receive notices that they have started a discussion. I guess that is to the newer ones on here.

I just learned about the notices a couple of days ago. I dont have them all turned on because it would take me forever to go through them! I am thankful for the ones that notify me whenever anyone responds to my discussions or comments. I was so frustrated at first because I felt like I was leaving comments, but could never really have a discussion! Now I can and I love it! I hope you enjoy the notifications. I find they definitely make me feel special!

I don't have friend's notifications turned on because I get so many emails in my inbox it often gets very clogged up and hetic and so I can't see important ones that may have come through from my university as an example. What I do though, is one of the first things I check when I come on Mylot is the friends started tab under discussions and I look at those posts first. So I still check what my friends are up to but I don't have an overflowing inbox!

Hi bdugas, No i dont have notifications on from every friend as i got countless here and if i notify on to everyone then you know i wont even find one mail which is for me. Many people i have seen here would start up to 10 discussions in a day and if all my friends did this then i would have over 3000 mails . So i usually dont keep them on , only a few persons who i know are little bit responsible in asking and wont ask more than 2 or 3 questions a day and atleast 1 of 3 would make sense.

Yes, I always make sure to turn my notifications. Every single one of my friend's notifications are currently on. Although for some reason, even though I have their notifications turned on, I still don't get the discussions from two of the people on my friend list. I've asked mylot why, but no answers.
