Just went through my user settings and found out you can now subscribe to forums?!
AWESOME! Thanks Cow folks, very nice feature.
I'd still love to see this feature taken one step further by allowing you to subscribe to a thread without posting in it (basically getting an email saying, "A new post has been made in the "Best Edits Ever" thread in the Art of the Edit forum. To go there click here".
I understand you wouldn't want to include the post in the email because it may keep people from coming to the site, but by providing just the link to that post/thread it would make it easier to follow your favorite discussions, and I'd think it would drive traffic to the site. This may not be possible or in the best interest of the Cow, but thought I'd throw the idea out there again (I mentioned it a few months ago, then found Forum Subscriptions--cool).
So that's my feature request for the day. Otherwise, love the new forum subscription option. How long has that been available?
I'll be working late.
