Tapatalk is more pleasant but I do find the regular forum easier to navigate
+1 Especially when trying to mark a few threads as read faster...

Thanks for the very quick response! I am trying to subscribe to the sub-forum, so that every day i get an email detailing which threads within that sub forum have new activity (new posts). Thought such a function would be very useful. At the moment, if I hit notify in the subforum, I only get an email when a new thread is created. If I hit notify in every threads, then I will get tens of email notification associated to all of the threads, instead of just one summary email. Being new, I am interested in all threads within the sub forum to improve my knowledge. The same trick has been proved to be very useful for me over at FT for a while now.
(not trying to demand any thing btw, just thought I should ask if anyone know how to do that)

You'll get tens of notifications because you're getting the email as soon as there's a new post.

I don't think there's an option to get ONE email summarizing a whole day's activities.

If you just want to see a list at the end of the day just click "show unread posts" or "new replies"

How does editing work on ddf, sometimes it let's me edit my posts sometimes it doesn't, the reason that I'm asking is because I started a thread yesterday and I wrote a typo on the op and also somebody posted a promo code that makes the deal better, and now it doesn't let me edit it.

You only have a certain amount of time to edit.

3 hours IIRC
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So I guess that i would have to make a wiki if I want to add the promo code.

 How do I change the title to reflect the better deal that the promo code somebody posted offers?

 And is there a way to make a wiki from Tapatalk?

PM a mod
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Another disadvantage of Tapatalk is I can't tell who's a mod.
