Someone recently asked why they don't get emailed when they receive a message on this forum.
Well, that's something you can fix! Click here (https://nfggames.com/forum2/index.php?action=profile;area=notification) or go there manually: click your name at the top of every page, and select 'notifications'. You can check the box to enable emails when you get a message there.
It's not set by default because that's how the SMF devs seem to like it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But yay, you can fix it yourself. =)
