Prometheus Wiki

How to keep track of changes and updates

This tutorial outlines some easy ways to keep up to date with changes and developments on PrometheusWiki in general, or to certain parts of the site you are most interested in.

User Watches Feature

If you want to be notified (by e-mail) when something is edited or when new articles or forum topics are added, you can create a 'watch'.

A watch for new articles can be turned on and off in a user's My Account's User Watches(external link) page. Image

The user can click the click the little eye Image that appears toward the top of many pages.

  • A Watch for a web page sends you the new page when it is edited, and any new comment when they are added to the page, and replies to those comments.
  • A Watch for a Forum tells you about new Topics. It does not notify you of replies.
  • A Watch on a Forum Topic sends you any future replies posted to that Topic. It does not notify you of new Topics or replies to the new Topics.

To turn off a watch, a user can either:

  • click on the open eye, which then closes, or
  • go to My Account's User Watches(external link) page and delete any or all of your watches.
