FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This Page addresses Frequently asked questions by our community members.
Do I have to register to submit a comment?
Yes. You are welcome to read and watch content on Fortespy and there’s no need to register. However, if you would like to participate in our community areas, you must complete a free one-time member registration.
How do I register/join ForteSpy?
To register, simply click on the “Register” link located on the top right-hand corner of any ForteSpy page and fill out the necessary information. For security purposes, we require e-mail confirmation of your registration. Please provide a valid e-mail address that you can check immediately. Duplicate e-mail addresses are prohibited, so if the e-mail address you enter is already in use, you will be prompted to choose another one. Once your e-mail address has been confirmed, you are now officially registered with ForteSpy.
Note: Your registered e-mail address will never be visible to other people, though your e-mail address will be visible to the ForteSpy Team in case they need to contact you for any reason.
Do I need a username/handle to submit a comment?
Yes. For you to submit a comment you will need to be logged into ForteSpy and you will need a unique username or “handle” assigned to your account. When you attempt to submit a comment, you will be prompted to create a username (if you had previously created a username already, you will not be prompted again and at this point you can submit a comment immediately.) Duplicate usernames are prohibited, so if the username you enter is already in use, you will be prompted to choose another one. Please DO NOT use usernames that are offensive. Once you successfully create a username, you are ready to participate.
How will I know if someone has replied to or liked one of my comments?
By default, you will receive an e-mail notification whenever someone responds to or likes one of your comments. If you prefer not to receive those e-mails, or would like to change the frequency of when you receive these alerts, you can change your comment notification preferences in your ForteSpy Profile.
How do I stop receiving e-mail notifications from articles?
To stop receiving e-mails about a conversation that you took part in or are currently following, simply return to the article that you’re following. Click the “- Unfollow” button in the comment form, and the text will change to read “+Follow”. You will no longer receive e-mail updates concerning that conversation. In addition, you can unsubscribe from the conversation directly from the e-mail notification sent to you. Just open the e-mail and click on the “Unsubscribe” link found at the bottom of the e-mail. You can also manage your comment notification preferences in your Fortespy Profile to set the frequency of these notifications and/or to not receive them at all.
