Notifications for Discussions

 Jordan Lejuwaan (@jordan)9 years, 1 month ago

I’ve been asked by several people about having some notifications for when someone comments on a discussion you have posted in. So how would you guys like this to be done? There are a few options:

– notifications for every one discussion you’ve participated in that has a new post
– notifications for every discussion you have marked ‘subscribe’ on
– notifications for every discussion you have ‘favorited’

The latter two would give you more control over what you get notified about, while the first one is automatic but less controlled.

Once we get a small consensus, I’ll get it done :)

I would say subscribe option as this gives control over what you get… but favorite, would do about the same …

but i do have another point, maybe it is just me but wouldn’t it be better to have the latest post on top?

or am I missing something …. ;)

That’s what I’m leaning towards too. Latest post on top of what? Both my favorites and ‘mine’ tabs list the posts by most recent activity.

Or do you mean the posts in the discussion should be listed by most recent? If that’s the case, then I’ll just say this is the way it’s done on most every forum. Do you have a good argument for it? :)

Yes, i am sorry I wasn’t clear, about your topic i agree with you and this is clear to me, second was off topic, my bad ;) -Well I could probably come up with something, when i am interested in a topic i read through it maybe reply, then leave to … whatever when i come back and go to the topic then i can just directly read new posts.

but thats how i see it,
blog style is also latest post on top.

I think the biggest notification that’s missing is tagging. I never get notified when someone puts @cameron, and that is specifically talking to me. And i think subscription would probably be the best to receive notifications about.

Alright so tagging notifications and subscription model. Sounds great. I’ll start working on it this weekend
