What's your system for using this forum?

Ideally, I’d like to see all new topics in the categories that interest me (which is almost all of them), via RSS, and then only come here after I get notified by email about topics that I want to keep up on. Has anyone figured out how to use that system, or something very much like it, with this forum software? I know how to do the RSS part, but I don’t know how to get such notifications working.

There’s a button in the upper right of each category that you can use to configure if you’d like to be notified via email of new posts, etc. Maybe that would help?

I think maybe what I needed, was to check this box, in my preferences. I’ve now done that, and will find out if that was correct. Thanks!
