Email Notifications

This help section describes (for club members only) how to be notified by e-mail of updates to pages on the website, or to forum postings. These are known as “Subscriptions”. This facility is useful because it means you don’t constantly have to visit the website to see if anything has changed.

The e-mail you will receive to notify you of an update is sent to your registered e-mail address – which you can update in your “My Account” settings. It contains a summary of the item which has changed and a link to the full item on the website – the exact content will vary but here is an example:

Subscription E-mail

  • News Item – news items shown on the front page of the website.
