    I was thinking it would be nice if you could go to your profile and not only see all your post and all your threads you started, but also to have the ability to see if someone quoted you.
    This way if someone responds to you or has a question and has quoted you then you have the ability to see this.


    Is this option already available some how?

    This comes up regularly. I can't really see the use of it to be honest.

    I thinks this would be very neat!!!!

    A bit of an ego boost to be quoted!!( Hey look, I matter!!!)

    However, there is a lot of quoting done here on the forums, and while I'm not conversant with the way the forums work, I would imagine a "Quote Notification" system would be large, bulky, cumbersome, and eat up muy bandwidth.

    I third/fourth this request!

    While I tend to keep an eye on update notifications, if the thread is busy I often miss a reply. This would be a great way of ensuring you get a chance to respond.

    You could always do a search for your username. Your posts won't come up but any that quote or mention you will.

    If it's a modified version of the thread notifications which are already here, it could actually take less bandwidth - since you'd only be notified of quotes of your messages, not all replies.

    I also think this would be good, optional email notification would be good too.

    i've often thought that this would be a great feature. but alas i don't think there is any way to really implement it.

    Search for "Posted by erandall38" is a hacky way to do it

    Does that mean no chance?
