Subscriptions are the way to personalize your experience so you can be kept abreast of only the changes that you care about. You can subscribe to forum threads, users whose content you enjoy reading, articles, etc. This way, each time you visit your home page you can see what has changed that you care about, without having to sift through stuff you don't. Additionally, you can get subscription content in immediate, daily, or weekly emails if you like.
In addition to the ability to set an email update preference for each subscription and for your default preferences, you have two other options to customize your subscription experience.
In the "Subscription Options" section, check the "Don't ask me" box if you would like to automatically use your default subscription option each time you click the "Subscribe" button on any piece of content. This will prevent the additional dialog box prompting you to set your preference.
In the "Auto-pause immediate subscriptions" section, you can prevent pausing of your immediate notifications. The auto-pause feature will automatically pause immediate notifications being sent until your next visit to the site. If you would like to receive all immediate notifications regardless of your visits to the site, check "Don't Pause".
