      Sign In or Password Problems?   10/09/2016

      If you can't Sign In, you need to reset your password.  Use the Forgot Your Password link at the bottom of the Sign In screen, and the site will send you an email to reset it. If you have an AOL email account, use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the screen -- AOL is intermittently blocking email from the site.

How to set up or edit Notifications


How to have the site notify you of things such as Private Messages.

I got an email, asking why the site was not letting them know via email when they received a private message here.  

This software will do that -- but you must tell it to -- it doesn't do it automatically.  You can set this notification (and lots of others) on the menu underneath your username in the top right corner.  Go to Settings > Account Settings on the dropdown menu underneath your username in the top right corner.  That will bring up this screen:


Click the link on the right for Notification Settings.  That will bring up this screen -- note that I've scrolled down the page to show some of the things you can choose to be notified of:


By clicking in the appropriate column (as shown in this example for Private Messages), you can choose to be notified by an on-screen notice or via an email.  It you have selected the on-screen notice, and you have allowed your browser to do that (it will ask first, the first time), it will slide out a notification in the bottom right corner of the screen -- regardless of whether you're on this site or not.

Once again, this software will do all kinds of things that the old site could not -- but it's a bit more complex, and in this case you must tell what you want it to do for you...
