Why Your Topic was Moved

RunRyder moves topics, usually from the Main Discussion, when they would be better served in a more specific forum.

For example, a Main Discussion topic displaying a video would be moved to the Photos and Videos forum, whereas a Main Discussion topic which warns others of a classified bad guy would be moved to CLASSIFIEDS - Feedback - Mediate forum.

Email Notifications

There are Six Items to Consider to manage your RR email notifications.

Email notifications are sent to RR members to notify them of new Private Messages (PMs) and/or new Subscriptions. RunRyder emails will arrive in your inbox from the 'RR <no reply> Notification' ( for subscriptions and as 'RR PM Email Reply' ( for PMs.

By default, email notifications for new Private Messages (PMs) and/or new Subscription activity are sent five minutes since your last activity on the site. You can change the frequency of email notifications by going to myHome - Edit Options (Messaging, Subscriptions & Notification) and changing the waiting period for PM Notification, Forum Notification, and/or Topic Notification. The longer the waiting period, the less frequent an email notification will be sent.

To prevent yourself from receiving notifications about new posts in a topic you created or post replied to, uncheck the box next to Subscribe to This Topic under the Options category before you Submit New Topic or Submit Reply.

Please note: RunRyder does not send spam or unsolicited emails and does not sell or give out members's email addresses ever.
Missing Inbox PMs and Save Copy

Your PM replies are automatically saved to the sent folder with the original moved to trash. This process is done to avoid redundant PMs in your Inbox and Sent folders. The Sent folder contains your complete PM conversation including date and time.

**RunRyder PMs are automatically deleted after three years. If you wish to keep something permanently, please save a copy to your personal computer.
Change Your Member Name

First, go to the MEMBERS list (link is located in the top header of every RunRyder page) and search for the new member name you would like to use. If the name is already in use, select and search for another name. If the name in not in use, pmRR with the requested name change.
Once the change is made, all of your existing posts and content will show your new member name.
Ignore Feature Explained

If you add a member to your Ignore List:
  • You will not see the ignored member's post content in topic view.
  • You cannot PM or email the ignored member.

If you have been added to another member's Ignore List:
  • Except for classifieds, you cannot post reply to the ignorer's topics.
  • You cannot PM or email the ignorer.

Review how to manage your buddy or ignore lists here.
Contacting RunRyder

Instead of email, it's faster to communicate with RR by clicking one of the two following links. For non post related issues click the pmRR link at the top of every RR page. For post related issues click the post's Attn: RR link.

By design, RR management does not follow or read along with the tens of thousands of monthly postings. It instead relies on community feedback via the links described above. Please do not ask questions or address RR via forum posts.
