Selective e-mail notifications

Selective e-mail notifications

Short, concise description of the idea
Ability to have email notifications off by default and have them turned on selectively per post.

Full description of the idea
This would pretty much be the opposite of the "don't email comments" option that is available in some clients. That feature allows you to selectively disable comment emailing when you have "Get message board replies" enabled. This would allow you to have the feature off by default, but give you the ability to enable it for an important post, one that you might not remember to go back and check for comments, etc.

An ordered list of benefits

  • User will not have to rememeber to check for comments on important posts.
  • User will not have to recieve emails notifying them of comments posted to all entries, some of which may be unimportant.
  • Will reduce workload on servers (due to the fact that people may not choose to have email notifications sent to them all the time).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Money/time involved in implimenting feature.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • :shrug: I'm assuming you people are smart enough to figure this one out :P
  • Tags: comments, notifications, § historical
    • Post a new comment
