Any plans for an email notification of replies to our posts?

Postby Buc2 » Mon Feb 23, 2015 4:47 pm

We get notifications when someone "thanks" one of our posts, but nothing if they reply by quoting one of our posts.

Yes... I understand I can subscribe to a thread. But that's not the same thing. If you subscribe, you get an email notification every time someone posts in the thread... not just when they quote one of your posts. I don't know about the rest of you, but I certainly don't want my email blown up because I subscribe to a thread that winds up getting multiple posts.

It may be new, but there is a notify me when reply is posted option every time you post.

I didn't realize that! Your post made me look for that option. It's probably always been there. duh

Okay... Just got the first "notification" after clicking that little box that reads, "Notify me when a reply is posted." As before, it notifies me every time a new post is submitted...not just when someone replies to (quotes) my post. That's not what I'm looking for. On the old boards (including, I think, the 1st iteration of BucZone), you could receive notifications when your specific post was quoted and not just every time someone made a new post in the thread. So this isn't the same. That box only "subscribes" you to the entire thread.

I don't think this will be possible with this version of software.

As you have noted, there is a similar feature included in the software but it doesn't have the exact behavior that you would want to see.

Because of this, there is no tried & true 'other method(via addon/plugin)' which could serve this purpose. Any such change would require multiple changes to underlying scripts(that the board uses to function) which haven't been tested on production boards of this software. I don't feel comfortable making this change(especially only 1 user explicitly requesting this), when it could compromise the integrity of the board.

Maybe in the future, if we have a big migration where we upgrade board software. Then we can look to a different board software that would have this feature enabled.
