I was wondering if there is tho ability to add a feature where you can see if a post you have made has been quoted. I think it would help in seeing responses.

Thoughts welcome

Rich.

i don't know if this is possible. but you could always do a search for your username. most of the results are quoted posts...unless you're immensely popular, and everybody's just dropping your name here and there.

I agree. I go on Craftster every now and again, and you can click a button a bit like New Posts that says "Show new replies to your posts" and it does this. It's really good. :)

Another approach that's similar, but not quite what you are asking for:

In your User CP Options, set Default Thread Subscription Mode to one of the email notification choices.

When you post in a thread, you will receive email (instantly, daily, or weekly) when replies have been posted to that thread. You'll get these emails whether or not a reply quotes your post.

And this it doesn't really make sense to get e-mails about it when you can check User Control Panel and it correlates with Forum Spy.

Some of us are heavy MacRumors users and know our subscription and Forum Spy features. :p

I'd love this. :D
Me too. Although this might encourage some people to just read those posts that only relate to them, and ignore other parts of the thread where they might be an asset to someone in need of assistance.

Don't make it the default behavior?

I remember back when I never subscribed to threads or used Forum Spy. I spent so much time just looking for the threads that I had posted in.

I asked here and dug around in User CP. After that we're here with lightning fast replies and easy to track threads.

Having a huge buddy list also helps in finding threads that I might be interested as well.

User CP is a godsend. Although I've noticed a minor problem with it lately: if I login and go to CP, and then have to log out, all of the threads I haven't been to yet are automatically marked as fully read. Truly bizarre.

</off topic>

I would like the feature, but I'm not even sure if any of the vBulletin software supports it.

Forum Spy and subscriptions do behave strangely as well if posts are deleted.

More so amusing then strange. :rolleyes:

I probably should start doing this at some point or another, but I just have to look! I can't help it!
Be careful. It might get your blood pressure up. Maybe we should have a doctor's note before we allow people into the iphone forums these days....


(Granted, I spend a fair amount of time in those forums, but I have low blood pressure. it keeps me from getting light headed if I spend my time getting annoyed...)

Funny thing is, I have blood pressure that's a tad lower than normal. Maybe reading some of those threads once in a while will help bring me back to 'normal' :p

Oh wait, this thread can do that for me:rolleyes:

Quote notification?

Is it at all possible to have (the option at least) a PM sent to ones inbox if they have been quoted?
That is all, I guess.

Sorry for the new thread, I saw this but didn't want to resurrect such an old one :eek:
