what happens when I "follow" somebody on the forums ?


Well-known member
when I "follow" a person on XF, what is this doing?

Is it only that I see the activities of the members I follow in my newsfeed or do I also receive e-mails on activities of people I follow?

Many thanks!

is this "Newsfeed" of the people I follow somehow limited in terms of timeframe?
So seeing the activities only of the last 3 days or something? Or can I see literally ALL activities, independent of timeframe ?

Thanks again!

i just put my question to follow here in.
how you can prevent that people are following you and you can delte a specific person of following you.

thx! ;)

You can't prevent someone from following you or remove someone who is following you.

You can however set your privacy to People you follow only.
