Setting up your account email and notification preferences.

Setting Email Preferences
When you first log in, you will want to set up your email preferences by clicking on "My Account" and then clicking the "Emails" tab. The various checkboxes allow you to set up notifications when new sessions are added in your preferred days/times, and within a certain distance of your zip code. If you want to be alerted to ALL sessions other players create, then you should check ALL the check boxes and set the distance to 100 miles. This will keep you well informed on all newly created sessions. To make sure you receive these notification emails, please add to your Safe Senders/Contacts list in your email program so they do not land in your junk or spam folder.

Setting Calendar Preferences
You can choose whether to show a weekly calendar (Sun-Sat) or always start with today's date at the top. You also have the choice whether or not to display canceled sessions. Premium Users have some additional options, incuding whether to hide invite-only sessions, or sessions that don't match your gender or skill level. Premium Users also have the option of using List View, where sessions are listed as horizontal rows, instead of the default Bubble View, where sessions appear as circles. List View provides more information prior to clicking on a session due to the larger size.

Setting Location Preferences
This tab is active for Premium Users only. Here you can turn individual locations on/off, which affects both the calendar and email notifications. Your visible locations can also each be assigned a custom color. So if you only play at a handful of locations in the same Area, you can assign each one a different color instead of them all being the same color by default. Note that if you have "Alway shows Special Events regardless of location" checked on the Calendar tab, this will override your choice to turn specific locations "off."

Changing Regions
You can change regions at any time by clicking on My Account > Change Region. You can also click the globe icon next to the current city name. Recently viewed cities will be added to a dropdown menu that appears when you click the current city name. You can hop between regions as much as you like. Note that you will only receive email notifications for your current region.
