Thought I'd share a nifty tool - changedetection.com - that I've found useful here to track changes to journals, lists or replies to game articles (without bugging Aldie or Derk!).

You have to give them your email address for obvious reasons, but it's free and after a year or so of use they've respected my privacy and neither spammed me or "shared" my address.

When I want to be notified when a page changes (I particularly like tracking a "Forum View" of some games articles, sorted by date), I simply copy the URL and paste it into the form. The only down side I've come across is an occasional false positive, which I presume is things like avatars changing, etc - but that's minor given the usefulness.

You're welcome
I particularly like knowing when someone has responded to an article, question or session report attached to a game entry. Extra Off-BGG hint: can also be very useful in monitoring changes in search results!
