I can only say that you can change your notifications under "My Settings".  But I don't have any notifications listed, so I don't know if they all work.


I can only recommend that you check the swap forum daily.

Two things you can try.
1. When visiting the site click "View New Content" upper RH of screen (Comment: this always works for me for new swaps and any other new stuff)
2. Go to forums and choose "Fly Swaps and Contests" next click "Follow This Forum" right above Start New Topic. Choose type notification (I choose instant) and click Follow This Forum.
You should get notified if any new activity if posted for that forum including new Swaps.
(Disclamer: it's been awhile since I used this function. I just turned some stuff on to still see if it's active and will post if it's working.)
Hope this helps.

EDITED: #2 is useless for notification as you must look at "content I follow".

send him a pm and see if he had any results with his issue
