You can receive notifications based on various activity on the forum, such as when someone has quoted you in a topic, has tagged you in a post, likes a post you made on the forum, when someone follows you, and etc. The type of notifications you receive on the forum will be based on your own profile settings.
There are a couple of different ways to access your forum notifications. When you have a new notification, you will see a number appear in a bubble just above the Profile button on the forum. The number in the bubble indicates how many new notifications you have, and if you click directly on this bubble, you'll be automatically taken to the notifications page of your profile to view the notification activity. Otherwise if you do not have a new notification and would like to look back on past notifications you have received, visit your profile using the Profile button at the top of the page and then click on the Notifications tab.
The notifications page will show you the reason for the notification, typically accompanied by which member caused the action that you were notified about. Included will be the date and time that the notification took place. Most notifications have links associated with them, allowing you to click to see what exact post was liked by another member, be brought to the post that you were quoted in, and etc.
You can control the types of notifications that you receive by clicking the Edit Profile button on your profile page, and then click the Notifications tab.

Mayken: Veda, when you go to your "Profile", there's a button at the top right that says "Edit Profile". Then click on the "Personal" tab (and other tabs) to edit the information. Hope that helps!

Mayken: Hey Adam Beck, how come your photo on that list is bigger than everyone else's?

Adam Beck: Mayken, I don't know, but I wish I could say it's because I'm taller! My son (almost 12) is now nearly as tall as I am. Just yesterday I told him that I have to start growing again!

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for sharing the impressions of your trip to China! I love those duck boats and that doorway! And meeting those kids wanting to speak English with you is so amazing!(I won't enter the giveaway because I'm afraid of winning the chicken claws!)

Amy: Bless!! how cute is that!!! Reminds me of a similar thing that happened with my youngest when she was 18 months: she said the sound right for every animal but the cow. She kept answering "Lola" because of a famous Spanish nursery rhyme about a cow!

Alba: My son caught us by surprise when we said thank you (in English) to a waiter in a Mexican restaurant, and he said "gracias" (thank you) to him too in Spanish, also signing it! He was having a blast and there was some Spanish music in the background.

Adam Beck: Sounds like a wonderful moment, Alba!
