Although the sparsity of posts is unfortunate, I think this forum could become a great resource. However the out of sight, out of mind principle could be one of the biggest barriers to growth.

As a result I would like the option to sign up for an email with a daily digest of new posts – this would encourage me to visit the PCN forums more often, and contribute to discussions. It would also be really helpful to have a small tick box that allows me to receive an email to a new thread or comment I have contributed to. I realise that it might be a few days until I see a response to this suggestion, so if I could choose to receive a notification when someone does reply, I will remember to come back and re-engage.

Just a thought (or two if you want to be pedantic).

Great idea Ben. We’re looking to get the forum going again, so a daily digest would be an excellent idea.

I’ve added an option that allows you to subscribe to all topics you contribute to. That’s an easy first fix – I’ll look into ways of creating a global forum email digest in due course.

I just noticed on your sickness post that I had the option to lock the topic. But not on this thread. Odd.
