Those all sound good. Anything at all would be awesome.Duncanma said:yeah, that is probably one of our biggest requests... but we haven't figured out the best way to handle it. For privacy reasons, we stopped storing your email address, leaving us with a bit of a challenge to notify you of things
Some ideas we've had:
Showing you a list of recently participated threads that someone has replied to on the sidebar of the site is an idea too... but it wouldn't bring you back in if you didn't come back to the site ... and if a large number of people had replied to various threads of yours, then we might end up only showing recent ones and you'd miss a notification.
- Windows Live Alerts (which can be setup to go to email or sms or messenger, but aren't handled by us ... so we don't need your email address)
- A RSS feed of all notification-style info ... you'd subscribe to that and get all the info you'd want
- direct twitter messages from our ch9 twitter account ... obviously not useful for everyone, but we thought some folks would like this
Thoughts are appreciated
