I totally understand that the traffic is important, and the more traffic you can drive to the site the better it is for the Cow, and definitely for the advertisers.

I guess I was looking for a way to "subscribe" to a thread and get email notifications that say "an answer has been posted to the thread 'thread subject line' you subscribed to", without seeing the actual post. That would drive me immediately to the site to read the thread. But that could also work against you--it may lead people to only come back reading when they see something has been posted! It would be easy to miss the other great threads you find by browsing.

Kind of a double edged sword, eh? And I'm sure the extra bandwidth/server costs would be huge. So I'd love to see it, but it makes sense why it wouldn't be implemented.

Thanks for responding. Now I need to go find 150 questions to answer to hit the 1,000 post mark!


PS. About the number of advertisers on the site--I personally see it as a plus. We needed to buy stock footage the other day so I came straight to the Cow to see if a stock footage company was advertising here. If I see their ad here I know it's a legit company, and there's often a discount for clicking through!
