If you did not leave the tick in notify me of any replies when you first post a question, you can log in, click on View My Postings, click on the posted item and view all responses. Any threads you post yourself or you post responses to will be held in this link.

The default on the Forum is that if you post a thread you will get notified if anyone responds to it via your email (assuming you entered an email address when you registered) So you need to check your emails regularly.

If you do not want emails notifying you of responses then you will need to log in to the Forum regularly and check your "My Postings".

Most of the members (in fact I would say all of the members) leave it as the default and get emails of responses.

If you sit there looking at it nothing will happen. You have 2 options. 1. log out and log back in again or 2. press and hold Ctrl and press F5 and let go. That will update your page and you may find some answers.

What I do is I alter my INTERNET OPTIONS > SETTINGS to 'check for newer versions of stored pages' to 'EVERY VIST TO THE PAGE' as previously it defaulted to 'AUTOMATICALLY' option.

You also have to refresh the page if you are "sitting" on it.

  ACOLYTE 17:12 02 Dec 2004

LOL, i have to admit i had a little giggle to myself when i read this,but just hit F5 and the page will refresh,otherwise you will be sat staring for ever waiting for an answer.
