    BHW - of course.
    Home Page:
    We've recently made a change that will stop email notifications going out for watched threads and pm's that contain the full message in the notification.
    Instead, you will be notified that you have a message on BHW and you should visit the forum to read it.

    If you no longer want to receive notifications for individual threads or sub-forums:
    You can manage your watched forums here https://www.blackhatworld.com/watched/forums
    You can view your watched threads here https://www.blackhatworld.com/watched/threads to stop watching click into the thread and hit "UnWatch Thread".

    If you don't log into BHW within a 180 day period you will no longer receive any messages from BHW at all.

    As per Facebook, Linkedin and most other platforms - We have done this to improve forum engagement and deliverability of messages - due to the nature of the topics discussed on BHW we constantly struggle to deliver messages/notifications where content gets caught up in spam traps. This should allow all members to receive notifications and then log onto BHW to review at a time suitable to them.

    Do you have any plans to offer any further notification settings?

    Desktop notifications, Sound etc.

    Currently the only way I can tell is via email, which doesn't always work.

    I like the notifications. This is a great community, but would love to see you move to something like discourse ... Have recently joined a couple of communities using that platform and everything - from its notification system through to its mobile functionality - is brilliant, so intuitive.
