There are quite a few ways you can be notified when a new question posts.
If you are logged into the microboard you will receive a noise notification of a new question posted. You will also see a notification bar saying "update received refresh to view", once you refresh the screen you will see the new question.
If you happen to not be logged into the microboard, you can get notification of a new question being posted via SMS, IM (google talk) and e-mail. To do so
- You need to click on "Settings"
- Click "Notifications"
- From here you can select how you want to receive the notifications there. Your e-mail and chat ID and phone are added in your profile area.
- Once done, click update
