How to make best use of this forum

Perhaps you want to warn the rest of us, so we could avoid possible vacation spoilers? Emergencies, Securities, Safety and Road incidents on the way to BAJA.

How to make best use of this forum

Postby admin » Sat Jan 30, 2016 12:51 pm

Greetings and thank you for all the good messages! We hope Baja treats everyone well.

Indeed, just as many good Samaritans noted, there are many advantage of a forum format over a news e-mail letter that you may or may not need twice a week in your email box.

Forum is on demand, available anytime and you are your own boss - being in charge of what and how and when. Major advantage is it is visible to everyone and anyone and not just people on some limited e-mail list.

In the meantime, we got lots of questions - people want to get notified of say private message or if someone replies to their original post.

There is a very smart notification system in order to do exactly that and to help you make the best use of the forum.

Say you are looking for a ride or you lost something so you want to be notified if someone answered your post. In order to receive that notification you have to set your board preferences first.

You may want to open up a second window with this forum so you could just follow instructions from this page:

1. After you log on click on your user name and click on “User Control Panel” form the menu.
2. Click on the tab labelled “Board Preferences”.
3. Click on Edit notification option.
4. Put all the check marks if you want to be notified via email or via internal forum notification. You probably want e-mail notifications just like on the pic below.
5. Click on “Submit” button.

Any questions drop us a line!

When making a post that you want to be notified just put the check mark "Notify me when a reply is posted" like this:

When there is an existing post that you are interested in, you will need to click that little arrow and choose "Subscribe topic". You will receive an e-mail notification once there is more posts.
