As I am new to the forums, I was wondering if authors are notified when comments are left. I’d like to be able to reply as quickly as possible to comments.
thats something that id like to see too
Of course there is
You can follow your item comments easily by using an RSS reader .. I use reader.google.com personally, quite happy with it..
So for you guys it would be
Note you can subscribe to forum sections and threads like this too, or any page that has the RSS icon in the address bar. Just Click, you get options.
I think I’d rather get email notification with a link back to the post. Click. Done. I subscribe to quite a few forum sites and the email method is standard now. I’ll give the RSS deal a shot, but I would really prefer being notified by email. Thanks very much for the link.
Also…it might be nice to have private, internal messaging on site. Another standard feature on other forums.
Thanks for considering these suggestions.
Keyboardman, if you’re not already using an RSS reader for your Internet notifications, I’d strongly suggest giving it a shot. If you’re on a Mac, NetNewsWire is great; not too sure what the Windows offerings are like, but Google Reader’s a pretty good web-based reader.
You’ll find that RSS has been gradually replacing email as the standard form of notification delivery on the web, and this kind of thing is only going to become more prevalent as time goes on.
I can let the developers know that this feature has been requested, but I’m not sure whether they’ll implement something that’s becoming slowly obsolete.
thanks so much for the links, i always wondered how to use rss and never knew how to!
I’ll give it a go. thanks Adrien
