Due to forum server migration issues we've had lately, this feature has been disabled. Pending an uproar of support to re-enable this feature, it will remain disabled.

1. A PM has been received
2. An announcement has been made by HST moderators or admin.
3. A post has been made to a topic on your watch list
4. A post of yours has been quoted
5. When you have been 'tagged' within a post. Tagging occurs when another user has preceded your username with the '@' symbol within their post. (e.g. @copeg wrote this post). Please note that usernames containing non-alphanumeric characters must be wrapped in single quotes for the notification to function correctly (e.g. @'user name', @'user.name', @'user?name', etc...).
I think 1,2 and 3 are important. I don't need 4 and 5.

Personally, I think the attendance is low currently because you don't get notified about new posts unless you log in a lot and use the view active topics. Just a thought.

Some here just do log in multiple times a day.. but still.. Did I get a PM? Did someone update some forum I care about?

No one will see this unless they actively log in. sigh.. :(

No. At times we all simply have higher life priorities to tend to than some relative blip on the Interwebs.

I think lack of recent traffic has more to do with Google's distaste for layout issues we've been experiencing over the past month. Probably temporarily dropped us in search rankings. More detailed stats appear to confirm.

I see. Google hates us.. interesting. did some test searches. HST doesn't show up.... :(

But that would be for newbies. not those who are registered and want to know what has been posted.
