Following musicians on wikiloops

On this page:

What does the "Follow" function do?

The "Follow" function covered on this page enables notifications which are triggered whenever the followed wikiloops member uploads a new track.
These notifications are received by the following wikiloops user, who receives a newsfeed notice on his user profile and an automated email alert (optional).
Using this function requires a wikiloops user account, so these notifications can be delivered.

There are other ways of "following" wikiloops members by browsing their past contributions which are available to any wikiloops visitor regardless of having a user account. Those are explained in the Following up one musicians tracks and following a team of collaborators article.
