It is a small and very practical option that sometimes goes unnoticed. On this site, you have the possibility to follow some topics more than others. It happens at the very bottom of the topic, a button at the bottom left.
You have the possibility to select different options to follow topics to adapt the forum to your desires.
- Follow: You will be notified of each new post in this topic. The number of unread and new messages will also appear next to the topic. This monitoring mode is recommended for the topics that are most important to you.
- Follow-up : The number of unread messages and new messages will appear next to the topic. You will also be notified if someone mentions your @pseudo or replies to your message. This tracking mode is recommended for most topics that interest you.
- Normal: You will be notified if someone mentions your @pseudo or replies to your message. The subject will not appear in the [Unread] tab (https://nomad-forum.com/unread) but will remain in the subject list. This mode is recommended for topics that do not interest you too much, but that you may visit occasionally.
- Silent: You will never be informed of anything about this topic, and it will not appear in the list of topics. This mode is recommended for topics that you are not interested in and will never be interested in.
In your profile, you can choose to automatically track the topics you read according to the terms of your choice. To do so, go to the option Automatically follow the topics I read. I personally advise you to put immediately, so you can have the unread message counter for a maximum of topics.
Still in the preferences, you can choose to follow or hide the categories of your choice. This way you can be informed of unread messages or even be notified for each message of a topic before you have read it! Another interest, by putting topics in silent mode, the topics will not appear in the list of recent topics. If a part of the forum does not interest you at all, you can easily remove it.
