ok , I might be new here, and some may feel as such am not entitled to an opinion on this topic,
But I have to say , I also think this a necessary feature for this site.
I am currently in and out of the Bush, and therefore not much internet time or access,but have participated in a few threads the last week.
With limited time to delve thru' topics purely to not be rude and not reply if someone addresses me, I would never get the time at all to follow the
1 or 2 threads that are currently of huge interest to me, and therefore would not be benefiting at all from this site with true deep knowledge
acquired, I would (as I did for an hour until I decided I had not the time to worry about the social nicety's AND catch up on the Moon thread. )
merely be skimming the surface of each discussion and not be able to take the time to follow source links.
If coding is a problem, then couldn't admin. at least create a subscription option by email to alert member's to a reply?
I was on a really crappy social site once that had this feature,( this site didn't depend on advertising), and they had this facility....
I'm a bit baffled why the #1,888 site rank(us) can't provide some way of making life easier in a fast paced world ?
And as for traffic being a factor; surely there would be MORE traffic if people knew to come back and engage in a conversion additional to the central
theme in a thread where people address their post personally ?
Seriously I find it most strange you do not have something of the sort, and in my new nonlurker empowered state of being am going to star and flag the
OP in appreciation of having asked a very good question.
