Proposed changes to FAQ #62.

<http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=62">FAQ #62</a> could stand a few small changes. Specifically, it needs information on how to stop receiving comment notifications.

The current text reads:

If you then check "Get message board replies", you will get an email anytime someone comments on your journal entry. Make sure you then save your settings by clicking the button labeled "Save Changes" towards the bottom of the page.

The following is how I would like to see it written out:

You can also choose to receive an email notification anytime someone replies to one of your entries or comments. To do this, check the box next to "Get message board replies". You can also select whether you would like to receive plain text emails or HTML-enhanced ones. Once you have configured your settings, you can save them by clicking the button labeled "Save Changes" towards the bottom of the page.

If you would ever like to stop receiving comment notifications, you can simply uncheck the "Get message board replies" box and then save your changes. After doing so, notifications will no longer be sent to you via email unless you choose to have them sent again in the future.
