Maybe if we had an 'Alerts' thing to show that the thread we wrote on was writtin on by someone else.
I like this idea.
I'm speaking from a viewpoint with no idea how difficult implementation would be, but perhaps make it an opt-in per post. You could make it a little check box under the "Go Advanced" posting option, and you would receive a notification when your post is quoted.
To be honest
I don't really think
We should have signatures at all
Another forum(forum.emobucket.com) I go to has something like this and it sends it to my email which I just ignore the alerts. The problem is that people will disregard any notifications after a while.
Youtube does this too.
I <3 one of you on here.
Maybe be it should be a choice per every thread. So if I post in OAQT and I select say "notify me of replies" then I get one but if I don't then its just a normal post.
Why you reading this bro?
Yes please, it would be nice to have a list of replies to posts I've made.
I live in Canada, I literally have to warm up before I cube :)
I've wanted something like this for a long time although I'm not sure about the specifics of how to opt in/opt out/when you receive them. But it can definitely be a pain finding the thread you posted in, and then finding the page it was on...especially in a thread like OAQT.
I like the concept, but I will leave the specifics of exactly how it would work to the "experts." We do have the subscribe to thread option, but its really only useful in a very small number of circumstances.
As Sarah mentioned, this would be really useful in the one answer threads. I have asked questions there and received answers that I did not notice until days later. It really makes me feel like a ****** when that happens and I don't have the chance to thank those that take the time to help me out.
I will add this to the to-do list. It may be a feature in an upcoming version of vB, so it wouldn't be worth creating a custom hack before then. Subscribe to threads for now, or you can go to your profile and view your forum post so you remember which threads you've replied to.
