    A couple other forums I use have rolled them out and it's much easier to keep conversations going. It just adds a notification for when somebody quotes you.

    From the other thread:
    I'm kinda curious what happened to the software change that was supposed to happen.

    Agreed! It really helps promote further discussion, which is really the only purpose of a forum. A forum with no quote notifications just doesn't make practical sense to me. I don't need to know when somebody likes my post, I rather be notified when someone actually responds to my post.

    Totally agreed with this! There is nothing like coming back to a thread a month later only to find that someone asked you a question or similar based on a post by you.

    Can you name me one other forum that has it?

    Because I've been on a dozen or so over the past 12 years (such as this one since 2008, and others before that going back to probably 2002/2003) and I've NEVER seen one have it. Not Harmony-Central, not Jemsite, not MG, nor any of the old gaming forums I used to run on.

    I agree...

    ...It would be cool to know when somebody replies to what you have to say. Rather than checking back every couple of days or until the thread dies to see if anybody replied.

    Homebrewtalk.com is the forum I was referencing in my original "Add who quoted me" thread. I seem to also recall Gearslutz also having this but can't confirm. It's really incredibly helpful to have especially on a forum as large as this. It's very easy to post in a thread in a section you're not usually in too often and totally forget about checking up on the thread. Or for that matter, why have to actively go "check up" on each thread? The "who quoted me" feature does it all for you. You can then easily go to the conversation and reply if necessary or learn whatever new information someone is sharing in tandem to your own. Clearly many people on here want this feature according to my thread and this one. :yesway:

    Yep, and it's great because it's a stoner forum. If potheads can do it, what's everyoneelse's excuse? I'm sure it's something lame like "software, blah blah"

    the site is f**kcombustion.com

    Guess the admins of those other forums need to start vaping pot :hbang::shred:

    I can also add AndroidCentral to the list of forums that have it. Just saw it while on there now.
