    You guys should add in a notification function that will send you a notice when someone has quoted you in a thread, this way when someone is replying directly to you, you immediately know of it.

    This would also really work wonders in the classifieds.

    You can get email notifications to subscribed threads.

    But a quote note thing could be useful.

    I would hate for anyone to use my words out of context and somehow use it to make me look bad.

    That's my job.

    I don't know about you, but I generally don't ever check my email to look for notifications from sevenstring.org :lol: I just come on here and check my subscriptions or replies to my threads and what not.

    But being notified when someone quotes me and directly replies to MY post, not just the thread... well now that's a game changer. I've seen it on a few other sites and always wondered why it wasn't implemented here, especially with such a fairly large userbase here and all that.

    I dig it.

    For the classies, it's helpful for me because an email beeps my phone.

    Really? Just think, you can go around quoting tons of shit while they are out and then when they sign back in, their faces get blasted off by an explosion of notifications that rival even the densest neutron stars throughout the universe.

    Can't beat that, my friend. YOU JUST FUCKING CAN'T.

    Alright Alex, as a fellow NJ survivor, I think we should implement this!

    NOW!

    You give me the sads sometimes Max.

    Can you humor us surfs with your two cents, prease?

    Are you afraid of getting barraged with billions of notifications when dickbag trollers quote your posts with defiant replies. :lol:

    I'm telling you guys, this quote notification thing is a really good idea. Just give it a probationary trial and I bet people will take to it real fast. If not, just throw it in the broom closet with the rest of the failed ideas.


    Or just do nothing and never acknowledge my existence. There's that too! :lol:

    I have often thought of this. I would find it useful.

    See, like right now, if I had quoted Max's two worded reply and we had this system implemented, he would be in here right now, inevitably striking me down instead of just farting around on his guitar and hitting F5 every once in a while.

    I had this same idea a couple of days ago. Have an option to disable the notifications. That way if you don't like it, you don't have to use it. :yesway:

    I like this idea, I sometimes forget that I posted in a thread and then have to search through my statistics to see what thread I posted in to see if someone replied to something I said
