Help Desk - Site News and Site Problems ONLY Discussion, default subscription to thread once you reply in Registration Problems/Site Related Issues; this got brought up in another thread
i posted in post #20 that i thought just replying to a ...
If you go to the settings page, on the left under settings, general settings, in the middle under messaging and notification, there is a setting for "Default Thread Subscription Mode:" Next to it is a drop down. I believe the default is "Do not subscribe" The next one is "Through my control panel only" which will keep any thread you post in (or select "suscribe to this thread" from the "cadillac discussion tools" in the header of the topic) in your subscriptions on the settings page. The next three options will put them in your subscriptions and send you an email when there is a new post.
hmm... i that makes a lot of sense now ... and gives reason as to why lots of newbs don't come back and reply ... they don't know that they've been replied to and probably can't find their thread if they aren't keeping track of it hourly/daily
i'm pretty sure that the default behavior is to subscribe you to posts that you reply to but the email notification is not set by default
i could be wrong but that's what sounds right to me ... wouldn't make sense if you didn't get subscribed after replying
That sounds right but that should be changed then. I shudder every time I read someone say they didn't know anyone responded to them. I wonder how many people post a question or photo of their car and think we are just too stuck up to reply to them.
We all go in and respond and welcome new members, it would be nice that they know it and feel inportant to our group. It is easy enough to opt out if they want but that would be the way I would set it up, that they would have to opt out of emails.
