Thread subscriptions/Email notifications (Re-enabled)
« on: April 15, 2013, 11:36:50 am »
Almost two years ago when we first made the move from the old forum to this new one, we were still on the old "Go Daddy" hosting service.  And back then we couldn't have the thread subscriptions enabled because if the forum exceeded the 1,000 emails a day limit, no more emails would be sent out which would obviously cause issues with new members awaiting the registration email the forum sends out when they sign up.

A question came up from another member about not being able to enable notifications for thread subscription.  The thing is, it was only enabled for Administrators & Moderators, so no Regular Member would have been able to receive notification emails from thread subscriptions.  So I decided to talk with Alex and asked him if it was okay to go ahead and re-enable that for Regular Members since we made the move to a new hosting service/server.  He gave me the go ahead and I went ahead and turned it back on for Regular Members.

If you're unfamiliar with how to subscribe to a thread, see below:



If you want to subscribe to a thread so that you can receive an email notification when there has been a reply to a topic you are following, click the "Notify" button at the top of the thread.




You'll receive a pop-up message asking you if you're sure you want to enable notification of new replies to the topic.  Click "Ok".




The same goes for if you wish to "Unnotify" of a topic you're currently following.




You can always see what current topics you subscribe to by going to your Profile, select Modify Profile, then Notifications.




You can multi-select your subscribe threads and "Unnotify" from them all, a lot easier than going to each thread and clicking the "Unnotify" on each one.

Neat feature. Shame the announcement is hidden in such an obscure announcement thread ;)

Bankai,

THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!

Thank you, THANK you, THANK YOU!!  Remember how annoying I was to poor Alex when I kept nagging and nagging and nagging and nagging and nagging by asking about getting notifications?  This is FABULOUS!! 

I'm gonna nag more often now whenever I want something.  ...like an ice cream cone.  Yeah.  I really, really, really want an ice cream cone right now.  Really.  Really, really I do.   ;)

How much do these thread subscriptions cost anyways?
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.
