[Radiance-openstudio] Giving UnmetHours.com a Try

Thanks Mostapha, I was looking for this exactly when you emailed. Early findings after setting up an account:

Look to the right side from the homepage to select your “interesting tags.” The tag “radiance” is the most obvious one. It looks a little annoying that there are some redundant tags like both “daylight” and “daylighting” but if we’re all consistent to tag “radiance” that is maybe all that matters. There are lots of potential tags! I haven’t posted anything, but is it completely open to create new tags? For example if I was posting a question about CFS, and there’s no CFS tag, will I tag my new post with both “radiance” and be allowed to add a previously undefined tag “CFS?”

Also, use a browser other than Internet Explorer. I have IE set to default due to some corporate Microsoft enterprise platforms, and it looks like you can provide answers from within IE, but the button to add comments or clarifications looks to be broken using IE.

Randolph,
Just to go on the record back in the traditional mailing list, I have been finding that I'm getting immediate messages to my inbox for all new questions, new answers, and new comments on those which are tagged as "radiance" from UnmetHours by:
- Under the "Interesting Tags" heading on the right of the main page typing Radiance and clicking "add"
(repeat for any other interesting tags such as "BSDF" "daysim" "daylighting-metrics" "glare" "sky-model" etc. etc., pretty much any tag that starts with the characters shade, light, daylight, sky will appear for you to select if you start typing those)
- Clicking my user name near the top left for my profile
- Clicking "subscriptions" on the right of the ribbon above my user avatar/picture
- Setting the first five radial buttons to "instantly"
- And setting the sixth radial button to "only interesting tags"
