Desmond, saw a thread on this where someone was glad email notifications was back. However, saw something that is better. Can it be done on SBM?
I personally don't like the notify by email on the gallery as I get so many emails, they could possibly just be deleted. Some sites have a message notification in the gallery as part of the my pictures grouping, where it tells you there are comments. when you click on it, it shows what layouts and who made the comments. That is a super and easy system.
This is how it shows on the DigitalScrapbookPages site.
