    Notification is a feature we have had in the past, but it's not possible at the present time. We used to send so many emails that the people who run our Internet Server told us it was over the limit.

    So, Millyone, this means that you will have to come back to BWB regularly to keep up with your topics of interest.

    There is a possibility of us adding some kind of notification feature in the future, and if it happens we will be sure to tell everybody about it.

    We have a personal messaging system, Millyone. I've just sent you a pm about the page numbers of threads. (See word game)

    Thanks Aloka-D. So I look at the page numbers and go to the last posting on the bottom of the most recent page?
    I just click 'Reply' and my posting goes automatically to the right place?
    If I wish I can use a quote in order to identify what I am replying to?

    Have i got it? Oh I feel like a new child in the middle of term! Everyone else knows what to do...

    Yes that's it !

    You can use 'Reply' or the quick reply box. If you've written something in the quick box you can then click 'preview' and it will extend to the larger box.

    Don't worry, you'll soon get used to it !

    Aloka-D and Woodscooter

    I am used to the system at Open University where we just 'subscribe' to discussions and copies of all postings are sent to our own private e-mail box. Thus we can just reply to those we wish to and delete others.
    I do understand though that that is not the system here and will do my best to get it right.
