    I have never accessed the QB through email! I found it on line and on line is the only way I read it. In fact when I regestered I disabled the email feature. I only get an email when someone PM's me.

    Yes, I knew that. I come directly through an icon that I have set on my desktop. I do however, log off at the end of the day. I 'unchecked' the email choices on my profile. I hope they are still working on their upgrades, however. I have had to click all the areas above after I've signed in, in order to find one that works. When I clicked on bookmarks this time everything was fine. Maybe it is just slow or I'm not being patient. Once it lets me into one areas I'm okay with the rest after that. This is a great board and I find that it's easier for me to 'surf' into all the areas that I have interest. Would not want all the emails outside of this board. Thanks to all who contribute to making this a fun place.

    I knew it! I also have it as a Bookmark. And it comes up as recently visited sites. Lots of ways to get there.

    If you right click anywhere on the page when you have the QB open, you can choose 'Create Shortcut' and send an icon to your desktop. Then one click on the icon when you want to access the QB and you're good to go.

    You can also set the quiltingboard up as you home page so whenever you log on to the internet you come here. The QB is my homepage at home so as soon as I open explorer I get the QB.

    I knew. It took me a while to learn that there was a newsletter.

    It has nothing to do with phones..I find if you don't put in an email you can not comment to anything, but some like it that way ..

    Ditto here. I get enough e-mail. By using the website I can pick and choose easily what I want to read.

    When I first joined I used to check each topic (ie pictures, main, etc), then I started using the "Recent Topics" function and that's pretty much what I stick with.
