Sign up for the Forum's email digest

We're trying something new!

After lots of people requested it, we're going to start sending out a regular (weekly or biweekly, still uncertain) email digest. 

The emails will feature recent posts that have a lot of karma/discussion, as well as question posts that could use more answers. 

Sign up here!


If there's anything you'd want from a digest other than links to posts, leave a comment.

Note: This is an experiment. We may stop sending emails if we get very few sign-ups, since it takes time to put the digest together.


Comments sorted by top scores.

Unrelated EA Forum feature request: It would be helpful to be able to filter the list of all posts to posts I have already upvoted and posts I have already strongly upvoted. This combined with date and tag filtering would make it really easy to re-find content. :)

Huh, that's a nice idea. And of course a straightforward "filter for posts I've read".

Thanks for trying this!

These are additional functions I'd find useful, but I'm not sure if it's worth the overhead for you:

  • choose tags: e.g. subscribe to all (upvoted) posts with certain tags
  • choose frequency: weekly, biweekly or monthly

Also, some blogs and forums seem to offer RSS feed, which I haven't used myself yet but just based on its popularity, seems useful for others.

You can also subscribe to tags, by going to the tag page and clicking the "Subscribe" button. For those notifications you can also choose frequency, in the notification settings on your profile.

You can subscribe with RSS via using the "Subscribe (RSS)" button at bottom of the left menu on the frontpage.

I would be interested in a monthly version
