I have started using a browser push notification tool. I know some people hate them, but I wanted to make sure you had a way of hearing what was new in the members area (even if you don't log in regularly).
When you hit the site using Chrome or Firefox, you will probably get a browser pop-up asking you to allow or block browser notifications.
The way I use this tool is to point you to new site announcements (which you can only see when logged in). Push notifications will be displayed even if you aren't logged in....if that makes sense.
Anyway, its totally optional. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
