Question: Why do I keep getting so many Emails?

Answer: You might be getting a lot of e-mails because your profile is set to automatically subscribe you to forums. To check this setting, find the People Block on the right side of your home page and click Edit Profile.

Scroll down and find Forum auto-subscribe. This option allows you to decide whether or not you wish to be automatically subscribed to the forums you visit and post to. Subscribed means that you will receive email copies of every post in that forum (posts are sent about 30 minutes after the post was first written).

Question: Why does my chat flash and blink while I'm typing?
