I want to know how do email notifications work and how are they important?
Email notifications are the bedrock of a successful question and answer community. These notifications allow community members to be notified of important events, such as:
- When their questions have been answered
- When one of their posts is commented on by another member
- When other members post new questions, answers, or comments in their area of interest
The success of the community relies upon community member involvement, and members are much more likely to become involved, active participants on the site when they’re notified of interesting developments. That is why this CodeChef Discuss considers a valid email address as a requirement for participating in the community and using this site.
Note that this is an opt-in feature and you can change the notification options anytime from your CodeChef Discuss profile page.
