Email notification defaults..

Postby tbone-sbp » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:27 pm

Hello! o)

I'm always irritated a bit by forums, which do not send email by default whenever a new post has been done to a thread I opened.
This forum is one of those! o)

Isn't it against the spirit of offering help and support? Many people might never read the response you gave, as they will not think about coming back to seek through the lists of threads to find their question and possible answers.. as I did.

I switched my profile settings by now of course, but maybe that is something to be considered to be automatic for newly registered members?
Just a thought! Cya! o)

Hi,

This is one of those cases of "damned if you do, damned if you don't". 8) It's a subjective issue and personally I make sure that my profile is set the way I wanted it when I visit a forum. Others may not like the fact that they are receiving emails from the forum by default.

In the 2BS forum there is the option to "Notify me when a reply is posted" at the bottom of your reply editor so you can explicitly set it the way you prefer depending the topic you are replying.

Thanks,
Kostas

Hi Kostas,

came here by coincidence again! o) So actually, there *are* responses to my posts, very nice! o) I thought to have set the forum to notify me of any new post, now I found another radio button to enable in the usercontrol panel. Hope this fixes the missing notifications finally! o))

I see your point, there may be people out there not wanting to receive mails, but I also admit, I cannot understand that.
Who likes to login to every forum and see if anything happened? Well, anyway.. o)

thank you,
tbone
