Following Specific Posters

I've seen references to being notified when a specific poster posts a message. This would be helpful to me in reference to some tech-ier posters. It isn't obvious (to me) how to do it. Help? THX

Re: Following Specific Posters

Hi, guys, here's how I do it:

Get the CF Search Function and type in the poster's avatar, his screen name.

Next, select posts or threads, whichever you prefer, and the program will do the rest.

There may be a much better and less cumbersome way of getting there that I have not yet learned, so thanks for asking, Blue Crab and ex-maggie drum.

Yep. Thanks. I guess I was thinking there could be notifications. I'd like rum cake and want to eat it too.

Re: Following Specific Posters

Don't give up so easy, guys! MAYBE ONE OF THE MODS KNOWS IF IT CAN BE DONE...

I'm sure many of us could generate a list of whose posts we don't want to miss.
