    Notifications

    Another forum I post at gives you a notification on your profile every time you get quoted, and also if somebody likes your post (obviously we don't have likes in CW).

    It's pretty useful, as sometimes you post in quite a few threads and then lose track, so it'd be good to be notified if someone is replying to you.

    Is this something CW might have the potential to introduce when vBulletin is upgraded? And I guess the other question is would people want it anyway.

    I've always thought that would be a useful feature. I don't know if the upgraded site could support such a thing, but my vote would be a yes.

    Interesting idea there GIMH. Does that other forum you're referring to use vbulletin?

    Do others want to see a like system on posts, and the notification idea?

    The only forum I've seen that on did not use vB. But yes that would be a very useful feature.
    RIP Craigos

    The notifications sounds handy but not the likes.

    No sorry, should have mentioned its on Proboards.

    The likes are okay actually. Just a handy way of avoiding 'AWTA' or 'this' posts. Plus this forum (as in the one with notifications not CW) once had a karma system which is similar to likes but the fact that likes aren't totalled makes it much less open to abuse and pissing contests.

    Nonetheless I'm not proposing likes, but the quote thing is definitely useful. Even more so for casual visitors who only post every 2-3 days I'd have thought.

    Notifications Mod - Who Quoted Me - vBulletin.org Forum

    There is a likes inclusion with vbseo, so I'll test this and the above over the next couple of days and then look at implementing.

    Thanks for the suggestions GIMH.

    Unfortunately that notifications modification doesn't seem to work with our version of vbulletin

    Slightly flippant response, but a serious question, can you have a "dislike" too? and even an "unsure"?

    Not possible no, only allows me to offer the Like button.
