Planned maintenance has been done but it did not solve the problem. So work will continue on this and a new time for trying updates will be announced asap.

[Suggestion] Follow tread



  • Recently i use the function 'posts since last visit', i think this is useful for the user that have just follow ALL tread.
    The people can see the new post to the forum. The problem is when a people is new and have more than 500 post to read!
    For me is useful create a function like 'make all post read', but i found that if someone post to a tread that i'm not much interest this is added to a 'post since last visit'.

    Maybe is useful ad another function > Tread Follow, and a function to follow a tread, like a JIRA function to watch a bug history.
    What do you think?



  • As a starting point, it might be worth digging up the documentation to an old Usenet reader (I'd suggest "nn") as a reference for features! ("Paging Mr. Allread... Mr. Mark Allread...")



  • what you refer to old usenet reader mr. allread and mr. mark allread?

  • Sorry, I was attempting to be funny - when one has fallen behind in reading, one wants the "Mark All Read" button...

    At the top of all threads there is a "Subscribe to this thread" link (right below the topic), that way you will get alerted when someone posts in that thread. Good enough?



  • Yes but this send only a email when a new post is create. Is there a way to have on the devnet an a message with a total of new post by subscribtion?
    The 'total post since last visit' is a total of post not only subscribe right?

    Aha, got it now. No, currently no way to do that here. Would have to be made.



  • Or, like in other forums, the icons in some color so you see them. Only those you want to follow?
