Do you think everyone knows?

that when starting the question and answer section that they need to go and change their settings to get notified for best answer and such?

I wasn't getting notifications of when someone would chose my answer as best answer at first and had to go into the my profile area and change these settings;

My Preferences

Off On Obscenity Filter Common curses will be hidden from questions and answers within the Answers section.
Off On Message Opt-out No automatic PMs or emails will be sent to the user from within the Answers section.
Off On Change Default Setting for Answer Notifications "Email me whenever someone answers this question" will be unchecked by default for your new questions.

and I was just wondering if anyone else had to change any of these also or if they haven't yet and didn't know about it.

  • I had to change mine to not get these things. I just look on my answers profile and send thank yous for best answers that way.

  • I think it all depends on whether or not you were using answers or maybe even a member of CM before they added those options. I've never had to turn on the notifications, but I was around before the options were. (c:

  • You can look at "My Transcript" in your profile. If you were selected as "Best Answer" it will appear in your Transcript.
    The settings only work for obscene content, blocking PMs, and weather you want emails communicating that someone has answer to your post. Doesn't say anything about cafemom messages sent to you.
