How to Set Up Email Notifications for the Forum

Step 1: Make a WaniKani account

Go to and create an account via the “Join Us” button in the top right of the window.

Step 2: Go to the forums

Go to WaniKani Community and log in.
Then look up the book club with the search function in the upper right of the window.
Click the link to the club when you find it.

Step 3: Set the book club thread to “watching”

Click the bell in the bottom right corner of the window and then select watching

Step 4: Go to your account Preferences

Click your icon in the upper right corner of the window,

then click the person (profile) button and then click the Preferences option

Step 5: Set up email notifications

Select Emails on the left, and then change your frequency to “always” in the second option


I wanted to make some instructions on how to enable email notifications in case you’d like to invite someone(s) from outside the WaniKani forums to participate in your book club or other thread.

You may still need to ping your friend with an @ occasionally, but this way they don’t have to constantly check the forums manually. Making it easier for them to participate can help increase the activity in the club and contribute to the discussion.


Well done on the guide to email notifications! :+1: ^^


Thank you!!
