Forums → News and Feedback → Forum Notification?
One of the ideas I've been throwing around here is a way to notify people on the forums. We already have a @Ferret function, so maybe allowing that to notify a user along with the thread link via e-mail would be useful.
Assuming we put some protections against spamming, what are thoughts?
Don't blame me, you should have made the system withdraw e-mails sent to closed threads by sending out packs of ninja weasels Mr. @Boppins.
A certain @MrDayCee brought me to this thread so a certain @Ferret would be able to see a certain idea I had regarding certain notifications... =P
This quote is from one of my posts in a conversation with the former...
there's currently no notification as far as I know that tells you if you've been mentioned in the forums through direct site contact. Maybe if there was some notification bar at the top of the page, such as in the dropdown menu that appears when you move your cursor over your username, or maybe in the beige bar near Game News, more people who log in every day but don't regularly check their email would notice if they were mentioned somewhere in the forums.
@Skeleton_Pilot Though it's not first on our feature list at this time, we have talked about notification widgets. I do like the idea of it being on the top bar, it seems similar in theme to how other sites do it. That being said, I'm not the UI designer and I trust him to make the right call. I'll mention your suggestion however. Thank you!
Just as long as it's being considered, that's music to my ears! Thank you for the quick response! =)
it would be a neat feature but to be honest it would be kind of annoying getting tons of ag notifications or email notifications about every single reply, considering when i post then rarely check back
I would suggest adding a link on your profile page like the one enjin has for it's forums if you ever visit it. It is on a sidebar and it shows your notifications along with an easy scroll screen to read them. This could also work for mail and online player (whether it be freinds everyone whatever).
