how does messages notification work

I'm seeing that I'm notified if someone posts a comment on a thread after me. But if someone sends me a message do I have to be signed in to see that or notified of it?

    Hey @chuck_franks

    Aside from subscribing to forum threads, the only way to get email notification from bbPress (the engine that runs these forums) is using the @ symbol which is built-in.

    Notice most of the time when staff reply to a thread, we'll open it like I did above, with the @ symbol in front of your username. That triggers an email.

    So you can do the same thing anytime you need to ping staff or another member. Don't abuse it though :slight_smile:
