Jim submitted a new resource:

The Follow Feature - Follow members see what they do and make contacting them easier

A little used function of Motorhomefun is the “follow” feature. When you ‘follow’ people it enables a few things that you can utilise or ignore.

When you follow people...

Everything they do appears in your newsfeed. So if you don’t want to miss one of Old Mo’s Jokes, or Haganap announcing his ‘Bring and Buy Rally" then you can follow them and you won’t miss their posts.

You can follow friends you have made,...

For other dummies it is found here. I didn't realise it focused on followed members only

Motorhomed for almost 7 years - now going nowhere!
Sounds alright I suppose. Does that mean if we are missing someone on the forum we can see if they are okay? I'm thinking of Gail and Tony who we haven't heard from for some time.

No, you will only be able to see what they are doing here publicly online. Following them to their home to find out why they are logging in would be a little intrusive ;)

Is it like a stalker app?:)

It's not an App, it just makes it easier to see what some people here are up to. You can't see anything that is not already public.

I now have a little pink box at the bottom right hand corner which says "Members You Follow" and a squiggly pair of arrows. As I don't follow anyone specifically and have no intention of doing so how do I get rid of the distraction of the pink box please?

I hadn't even noticed it until you mentioned it. Now that I've seen it, typically I can't help but notice it all the time!

Had one for 5 years many moons ago
I have to admit the colour is strange. Could be pink, could be orange or could even be pinky orange.
Whatever, I hope that @Jim can tell me how to remove it.

Is there any way to turn it off at all ( and stop the message bubbles coming up instead of the original notifications at the top ) ?
Mind sound daft but it just keeps on drawing my eye to it.. and in all honesty I am not that fussed about who is following who to start with !

I'm now following yooooo. Does it feel creepy?

Really creepy!:eek: I've never been followed by a woman before. I hope you don't find it too boring. I'm sure there must be men on here who'd be only too happy for you to follow them.:D
It is less creepy than I thought, though, because I've had an 'alert' to tell me that you're following me.
I had imagined that people would be able to follow 'from the shadows.' It kind of defeats the object of stalking. I think anonymity should be granted, so that people can get really pervy:sneaky:.

Since April 1846 but have always camped.
I have no coloured box anywhere. Am I missing something? I am just looking at the list of active threads on an iPad.
