You can use email to receive posts and reply!
For each forum you are interested in, simply click the ‘Watch Forum’ link at the top of the forum page.
You’ll then receive an email anytime someone posts a Tip’n’Trick entry for example. You can also reply directly to the post/thread from that email.
Fairly soon we’ll have an update to the community technology that will hopefully allow users to start new threads via email too.
