    I added a modification that notifies members when they have been quoted in the forum. Unfortunately this mod doesn't let each member decide whether they want quote notifications or not, so either everyone gets them or no one does.

    Let me know whether you like it, and after getting some feedback I'll decide whether to keep the mod or uninstall it. Thanks!

    Sounds nice idea but on the other hand it may end up rather frustrating getting lots of notifications for quotes...I'm torn

    I was surprised this option didn't exist when I signed up as it does on just about every other forum I'm on.
    Here it's not such a big issue for the regulars who can easily read every new thread and so see people quotes of your posts, but on a larger forum where you only pick and choose the notification of quote is invaluable for keeping a conversation going!

    Which forums do you visit that have this option? I'd love to find a way to make it optional.

    Pentax Forums has it. But they do "Likes" kinda weird. You have to type a comment to leave one and you get notifications for the "Likes" as well.

    myaudiq5.com most often - not sure what 'forum engine' they use. They have a wild number of options as to if you get email, mobile app or web notifications for just about any event you could think of!

    It seems like a very good feature.

    Is this possibly one of those situations where there's "a solution in search of a problem" ?

    :biggrin:

    Why not, quoted you :)

    I think this feature is for Q&A and discussion. How useful, remains to be seen. Personally I don't like quoting images.

    For some reason, I originally read this as getting e-mail as a notification. As long as it is just the notification in the upper right, same as the likes, I'm fine with it.

    I agree with the above comment - as long as no e-mail notifications I'm fine with it :)

    ...see, no quoting :D
