Notify me when people comment on a discussion I commented on

  • I'd like to request an additional notification preference:

    Notify me when people comment on a discussion I commented on

    This would save me from having to explicitly star each and every discussion that I commented on (which I forget to do in about 80% of cases).

  • Presume there's a bug in (mail) notifications. Again*:)*
    Yes, of course if there isn't*:whistle:*

  • I only seem to get notifications of additions to threads I either manually starred or started myself, not ones I just contributed to.
    It's also bad IMO that you can't immediately see from the thread list which threads you've posted in.
    You shouldn't have to go to your profile to see that information.
    🙂

  • I usually remember where I replied*:P*
    And it's easy then because a topic is up when replied again. 😛

  • Something like a "subscribe to this thread" option would be good.

  • What's different from starring it?

  • Emotion.
    :lol:

  • What's different from starring it?

    I thought that starred threads were something that could be seen publicly, but it seems that this is not the case.

  • If "starring" the thread is the only reliable way of getting notifications from it, it would be good if it became starred automatically if you posted in it.
    You shouldn't have to remember to manually star it after you post in it for the first time.
    You always have the option to subsequently turn it off again if you decide that you don't want the notifications any more.

  • No.:no:

  • Why not?
    😕

  • Why not?

    Dave, if you follow most of joshl's posts, you'll discover that much of what he says is merely to augment his post count. Go back over this one discussion as an example and note his posts. Most of them are relatively meaningless in light of the thread's topic of discussion. Therefore, I wouldn't take his response to your comment in a serious vein. Personally I agree with you... that if starring a post is the only way in which to receive notifications when people comment on a discussion in which I commented THEN this should be done automatically.

  • OR we do what this thread is about... ^^

    but yeah, auto-starring might even be the better solution as you can get rid of some threads selectively if they start getting annoying 🆙

    ... an extension could do this... If this isn't going to happen soon I might be frustrated enough to write it... 😄

  • We could be notified when we receive upvotes or downvotes too.

  • Why not?

    For one, I star interesting or worthy threads.
    Or important.
    It's not the same as to follow a certain conversation for a while.

    Leo said good. If starring would be a public feature, we could separate it from just following threads - in private so to speak. :sherlock:

    Leushino, shut up - you're merely jealous! 😛 :lol:

  • If "starring" the thread is the only reliable way of getting notifications from it, it would be good if it became starred automatically if you posted in it.

    If we have a way to disable this option, then no problems. Not everytime i reply in a thread means that i want to follow that thread.

    This could be a configuration in profile page.

    Of course you can disable it, just clicking on the star again "un-stars" it!
    joshl obviously uses the stars for the specific purpose for which they were presumably intended, but if you're following a thread because you're interested in it, the chances are that you would have also posted in it anyway!
    All the other forums I use in fact automatically subscribe you to any thread that you post in, usually with a global setting in your profile to disable this behaviour if you don't want it. That is the ideal, but I'm not holding my breath for that here!
    🙂

  • Why have the forum headings suddenly gone into what appears to be Russian BTW?!
    :eek:

  • Of course you can disable it, just clicking on the star again "un-stars" it!

    I mean that we should have a "star all threads that i reply in" option so the user can choose if s/he wants to have it enabled or not.
