I think it would be really helpful if VBB notified me in some way that there had been a reply or a post to a thread I had commented on or started. That way it wouldn't be months before I noticed some

Renee - 95% of the other message boards I visit have that option .... If you chose you get an email when someone replies to your post.

I agree too, Renee!  I think they have bigger problems right now with so
many of us not being able to get on this site.

Renee,
I view my VBB which is at the top right-hand corner and check to see who responds to my posts. Try it and let me know if this helps.

Renee, there is an option for you to get notice if someone responds. Click on "My VBB" in the upper right corner.  Then go to Account Settings. There is an option for you to click on notification if someone responds.
Hope this makes sense and works for you.

Hey Nikki~ I do have that notification box checked.  I have never once gotten notified that there has been a comment or new post.  I wonder why? Oh well, I guess I'll just have to continue on blindly....LOL....so sorry in advance VBB's if I don't get you a recipe until a year later!!! Wink

Renee, given the fact we can now contact each other if it was a "dire emergency" to get an answer or a recipe we could contact you.
I also have the little box checked and I sometimes get a notice that someone has responded but not all the time.  I do feel terrible when I have posted something and I don't notice when someone responds or asks a question related to my post. but I think that happens to all of us.  No need to feel guilty or bad about it. 
I think that it's a "woman thing" that we make ourselves feel guilt for no real good reason.

 GRANA here; Hi RENEE; A GREAT IDEA/SUGGESTION; add myname to the list of those  requesting it. I recently requested notification of newPM's in MY VBB; "no promises", said Nicole,  but they are looking into itUndecidedI think we used to have a blinking /flashing tab for new activity in my favorites; helpful in keeping up to date w/topics of interest.
thread I had commented on or started. That way it wouldn't be months before I noticed some one asked for recipe or commented directly on a discussion entry by me  etc.  Just a thought.....

Hi ANGELA FGRANA  here; MY VBB is one of those place stil gooey & slow( 5 minutes just to open it; hardly wort the wait if there is nothing "new" there.
If enough of us are checking "MY VBB" ; that will slow the site down for everyone; what is needed is a notification o f some sort when we get to the  "COMMUNITY"area!
