We're slowly going to wean discussion off this Ning based forum onto discourse.mcneel.com - there's a new Neon category up there now. Feel free to post over there too!
I wasn't able to figure out how to only get notified on activity in the Neon category. I'd also like the ability to get notified when new threads are created to help support the community. Is that something that I've missed?
I haven't figured that out either. But it's probably worth asking over there rather than here, because it relates to Discourse rather than Ning. Post it in the "Meta" category.
