We have someone coming on board on Monday to help us with a few of the more complex tasks, related to getting this site up and running. One of these tasks is subscriptions and an easy way to notify us of what is new and updated. We're hoping for a very fine level of control over what content each user can see. The goal is to allow each user to subscribe to the blogs, games, etc. that they are interested in, and have this all accessable from their profile page.
In the mean time, I've been tinkering around, ...and I think I've found a way. Not the most ideal way, but I think it's functional.
1. Click on my Account
2. Click on the Track Tab
3. Skim through it and look for red updates.
* note: This will only work for items that you have viewed, so it doesn't cure the what's new issue, but generally all new items will appear on the front page.
