[ORGA] Observing the Bee Observer

Hi there,

we just received a question about how to optimize working with Discourse.

Thanks for writing in. We will see what we can do about it.


Subscribing to a category in Discourse

How to

To subscribe to a category, navigate to it and set its notification status to “Watching”:

  • Now you’ll be notified for every new post in this category. These notifications will appear as a blue bubble on your avatar in the top right of every page.
  • You’ll also be emailed with notifications when you’re not active on the site.
  • If you’d like to be emailed even when you are active, and make your experience as much like a mailing list as possible, we’ve got some steps you can follow.

In case this topic resonates with you, you might want to read about similar aspects to it. A quick research on the Discourse Forum at https://meta.discourse.org/ gives us some other pointers.

Remark: Some of these things might be outdated, which essentially might mean they have been implemented already.
