Concerned about the Coronavirus?


We've put together some helpful information and advice about Covid-19 on our website.

You can also read about: improving your wellbeing, getting food and essentials and claiming benefits during this time.

Are you happy with the notifications you are getting?

We have had a few people speak to us about how many email notifications they are recieving from us here on the community and so we thought we'd just share a few details about these.

You are in control of how many (if any at all) notifications you get. On the edit profile screen you can do many different things, such as uploading a picture to represent yourself in the community (this can be a picture of you, but if you prefer to remain anonymous feel free to use a picture of your cat or anything else), or setting a ‘signature’ which can be used to customise every post you make.

Notifications

From the edit profile screen you can also change your notification preferences. This can allow you to customise your community experience to your tastes, by enabling you to choose when, and if, you want to receive emails notifying you of new posts in the community. When you’re done, be sure to click the purple ‘Save preferences’ button near the bottom of the screen.

For more information on the community, take a look at our How To Guide.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch and let us know.

    I can't always remember what I have replied to, so an email is nice.

    Just another reminder that you are in control of your email notifications, we have had a few emails of people concerned about getting too many emails.  Do check your preferences if you'd like to change anything :)

    So happy I found your site ' thank you so much all 
  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 3,741 Disability Gamechanger
    It would be really useful to not get email notifications for posts from people on your ignore list. It would also be useful to have a higher limit than 5 on the ignore list. 
  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 3,741 Disability Gamechanger
    Have just discovered also that if you have someone who is on your ignore list and who is now a deleted user you can’t unignore them to free one up to apply to someone else.

    As if that were not silly enough if you go to your ignore list and click on a user you are ignoring you then get to view previews or full posts of what they’ve recently posted. Exactly the sort of thing you’re trying to avoid.

    Thanks for the feedback @mikehughescq
    We are looking into this!

    160 odd emails in a short period I turned off emails as couldn’t see a daily digest.

    Seems friendly here, not sure how long it will last- but ok at the moment

    Hello @WhileIBreathIHope   Please can I offer a suggestion.

    Understand the floods of Emails.  As a community champion get loads so use my common sense.  As I do try to support give my time to every one. Try to give any one who contacts me an answer.

    On the wall you have you can click on notifications . First icon.  The purple one click on that gives you a list of who has sent you posts.

    I always reply to those who have mentioned me and those who are friends who message me.  Made polite comments or thank you. Just being a gentleman.

    I do go around the forum and website to double check any posts I have may answered. Every one does get a reply.

    If no one has ever answered any posts a member may have sent.

    Used to come into my Email account I have so many could not see  the other Emails I have received from other people or organisations.

    Please if you wish to you can change them.  What you wish to receive.

    Might be worth doing what I suggested.

    If you need to know anything about the forum and website please contact me happy to explain.

    Please take care.
