Tracking Posts being Watched

Hey again

Some forums using a changed version of phpBB2 add a nice functionality which gives u a host of tools, like a quick access menu. One of the most essential tools is a list that states all the topics am watching with the nbr of replies.. so when i am part of so many topics u can still control it and know where i am really hehe

I think we need that tool.. i don't like getting so many mails so i can keep track of the topics am watching.. what d ya think guyz ?

Peace

Actually that is a good idea but I haven't used it on other forums, maybe becuase I don't post much  =P.

Sam, it is helpful indeed. I am watching only 6 posts and i started to feel that the tracking thingy is needed. Another suggestions, not that helpful, which is a "Note" section. Each user has it in his area so he can put notes not to forget, at least paste the Post nbrs in it to keep track instead of flooding his email, and i can access the notes from any PC (i travel on a weekly basis.. good i have my laptop though ;) )

Re: Tracking Posts being Watched

i usually check "the posts since my last visit" it's a good alternative! (rather than having your e-mail flooded)

Re: Tracking Posts being Watched

yeah but when the site grows, you wouldn't want to know ALL the posts since my last visit but only the ones you want to see if they changed OR the ones you have contributed in
