Hey I have an idea to make the subscription part for a thread little better. Right now when you subscribe to a thread you get notifications of everyone who writes a comment. What would be great if you could choose between that subscription and a subscription which would only send you notifications when the thread starter writes something in that thread.
I was about to start a thread which suggests just this, why do you have to get an updated subscription notification everytime some else posts in the artwork threads [Finally finished, Sketchbook etc.].
I've found it really annoying that you get a good two or three pages with just sheer comments. Some maybe useful, yes, but mainly it's just 'cool stuff', 'yeah man, keep rocking' etc..
Although when I found this thread I realised the problem for discussion threads.
However could there be an option to choose wether you get notifications from all new posts or just ones from the thread starter?
Just an idea but let me know if it sounds feasible or I'm just talking
I'm not saying that I know how to do it but I've seen similar things done in other forums like an 'ignore' function to block out particular users and a 'new replies to posts' so you get a list of all threads that have you have received replies in.
I would've thought an 'only notify of update from author' check box could be added, somehow.
As I said though, I don't know about forum programming so just going on what I've seen used before.
