How I Keep on Top of Things...

Maintaining RAF (Forum) is, at times a daunting task. But thanks to the new forum software (SMF), email & text notifications are an admins dream come true.

One such notification is when a member registers; effective when trying to prevent duplicate registrations, and when trying to keep banned persons out.


Another handy notification is when someone sends me a personal message, I am also notified via text message. So wherever I am in the world, with or without an Internet connection; I will know I have a message waiting on me.

A great example of this being useful is sometime last week when I was enjoying some TV show, Tyler PMd me regarding some unfolding events in the RAF Chat. Luckily I was home so I promptly banned the offending member, and life went on.

There are varying triggers for the more important text alert, along with Personal Messages, there is that reported post trigger. So whenever someone reports a post, I am immediately prompted.

So what have we learnt today folks? If you want me to respond to an urgent matter, simply send me a PM. And if you are someone who got banned, don't try to re-register, because I check each member who registers.
