Now I want to process some things from the list

At the beginning of this thread in the first post I stated this:

"More advanced function would be:

Subscribe to a topic, and receive an e-mail alerts when something new appears"

Subscriptions are one way to stay up to date with events in various topics.

I think this feature would be useful for us users.
But I also think it would also be very useful for moderators and administrators.

Q: How it would be useful for moderators and administrators?
A: Assuming they are very busy, which of course they are,
it would be easier to subscribe to the following topics or not?

[REPORT] Quests Bugs & Glitches
http://armorgames.com/community/thread/ … s-glitches 
and similar.

And as far as the users,

When someone asks a question in a topic,
and then he wonts to subscribe to this topic because he expects a response, and a response may take place immediately in one case.
But in other case he may have to wait much longer than that.
So he would not waste time on that and instead he can participate in any other subject.

It would be especially useful for forum games!

For example, I started a topic and I want to know when something new appears in it,because I want to exchange views&posts more frequent. I can not wait for someone to make a reply.That time I would like to use for something else.Example to play a game, write something in another thread or something else.

Important!!!
When I receive such a notice, I would like that such a notice has a link that takes me to the first unread message.

By the way there are several different methods of notification:

1.Daily notification by email - AG sends you a summary email of new and updated topics in the forum and subforums.
If there are no new or updated theme, you will get no email.
2.Current email notification - AG sends you an email message as soon as the topic has new messages.
Further on,notification is not sent for every reply, but only for the first answer that comes after your last visit to the forum.
3.Weekly email notification - AG sends you an e-mail message once a week, in the same way as the Daily notification.

Basically all this comes down to increase users activity on the forum,and also the whole site.

Also I wish there is this kind of service (notification)

When new quests appears on the site, it might be a good idea to e-mail users about it.These are published on Facebook and Twitter. Then why a similar system would not exist on the AG site?

And this can be done automatically.
It can be an option on users profile "checkbox" if they wish to receive an e-mail alerts when new quests appears on the site. Of course, anyone who does not want to receive this notification,does not have to tick checkbox.

There are a lot of interesting ideas, most of them I'd love to see as well.  I'm trying to get things updated little by little. :)

If ArmorGames is going to have this kind of email notification thing, there better be a way to turn it off. I get annoyed by these very quickly.
