I am really enjoying being back 2nd time around, and making some good progress. I am struggling with keeping up with messages etc. I want to make sure that I reply to all the messages and comments I receive, and don't miss any - but am confused.

Does anyone have a good system of replying? They don't all seem to be in the one spot. Some are on the profile page, some are on the blog pages, some are just sent be email. I don't like to click on the email notification I receive, as these can add up. I prefer to reply on my pc, at home, and when I have the time.

My question is - can you have just all your messages, and replys and comments in one spot? I know there is the green box, up the top with the comments, but there seems to be lots of other comments and replys also. Perhaps I haven't set it up correctly. Any ideas?

All my comments and communications forward to my email account and I just respond to them from there. I pick and choose who I view and respond to based on the quality of the material they post on WA. If grammar and content are always weak I usually don't look at those posts. You can't respond to them all! But, when they are all in one place it is easier to pick and choose!

Great question. I have the same problem. Lots of emails which take longer to answer. Would prefer ALL communications on my dashboard activity. Maybe I too have not set it up properly. I am sure I will find a way to make rapid responses easier.

Yes, Larry, I would prefer all on the dashboard also.

On your personal account page there is a section where you can choose who and where you get replies and emails from. Go to your
profile, then to account settings and then scroll down to email notification settings. Hope this helps. M

That is a great solution. I think a lot more people need to know about that. Thanks

Nope you have it right.

If you reply to someone's post, then you will be notified of all posts in that blog thread (to you or otherwise).
If you post on someone's profile, you will be notified of all posts on that profile (to you or otherwise).
It can become unruly and hard to keep up with. You can unsubscribe from the thread though. I had to unsubscribe from the "say hello" thread.

Now apart from the Green Mail Icon, you can click on "Activity Dashboard" and choose Notifications on the far right.

You don't have to reply everything that comes your way. Also you don't have to look at every post and comment.

Exactly! If you get too caught up in replying to every single post comment, etc, and reading every single blog, you risk get too distracted to actually work on your site.
