That would be more a suggestion for the board admin rather than this little section - but it might be more than he could do.

That being said, some boards let you be notified when a thread is updated, not sure if this one does. If you change your default e-mail address for the forum to the SMS mail address of your phone provider you could probably get that kind of result - assuming the board supports that option.

Which I don't know if it does.

The forum does have a topic notification option which sends an e-mail when someone posts in a topic you have "subscribed" to using the "Notify me when topic is replied to" option. Nothing that specifically sends SMS messages, though. There may be add-ons that update Twitter feeds--haven't looked into it.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

If I had e-mail updates for forum postings configured, my phone would be ringing all day.

I've tried to access this forum on a mobile, but there isn't a mobile version of the website, so it's basically unreadable.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

Unfortunately, a mobile template has not yet been developed. When one has been developed, I'll install it. The only other option--for reading posts via mobile--is the RSS feed. I've no information on how well that works.
