    I've just joined The Very First TSG Social Group!
    Would it be possible to include an option for a member to receive an email whenever a new thread is posted on this section of TSG, only? - This, because of the infrequency of posts.

    If you mean when a new group is created I don't think so although Mike would know more than me about that. It may be something he can write but I doubt he'll want to spend much time on it since this is a feature that is likely not to be included when we move to the new forum software.

    However, you can subscribe to a particular group so that you receive notifications even when someone starts a new discussion in that specific group using Group Tools on the right-hand side. :)

    Thanks for your speedy response Cookiegal - I knew about the daily/weekly email option (and use it) - was just looking for something a little more dynamic, but can see that the overheads probably don't justify it. Thanks anyway;)

    New Forum Software! Am confident it'll be good! Is there a Beta version we can take a sneak preview on?

    Sorry. When I use my Admin. account I have the option for Instant notification. Yet when I use my regular test account I only see daily/weekly so I guess it's an Admin. thing. :)
    There is and we're playing with it now but it's only available to Administrators, Moderators and Trusted Advisors at this time but I can say it's pretty nice and user friendly. :)
