While I am wishing, I should go ahead and ask that ATMS gives us the option of being alerted each time someone replies directly to a post we have made in a thread.

I agree with the extended replies to posts that are not your own it would be handy, but as for replies to you specifically you can go to the ribbon the shows at the bottom when a page loads and click messages. Once in your mesages section you can click replies and see all the replies people have made to your posts.
The problem is that if you are a thread author and they reply to the thread and not you specifically they will not show in your replies section. Maybe an addition to this feature could help.

In a 500+ post thread, sometimes I just want to see replies to Phage's comments, as an example. Or maybe there was one really good post, and I just want to see how people react to that.

ATMS? I can't believe you don't know! and you're a mod?? jeez-o-pete!!
All-Thought-Must-Stop (which it apparently has for me)
really, here is what ATSM is;
supposed to be ATS, but went something like this AT, so I backspaced to insert S, but doing so caused me to erase the , and required I retype the , comma after correcting the original tyop... which should have ended like so - ATS,
but instead, I was too quick on the draw with the , comma, and I was still holding down the shift key , to capitalize the s.
In the next step I simply allowed myself to hit the letter m instead of the , comma - and since I was holding the shift key, it went in as an M.
Following the M I positioned in the wrong spot with improper capitalization, I closed the series by also improperly placing the S at the end, to the right of the M - this allowed me to create the highly sought after series of letters - ATMS
Finally, to complete the maneuver, I made sure to pay no attention to my typing, while also saving valuable seconds by avoiding an ABC check. The end result is what caught your eye.
This is a very complex maneuver and I do not suggest any amateur attempt such a move at home and/or without proper supervision.
Advanced moves like this, performed improperly, have been known to completely retard even the most astute amateurs back to a 1st grade reading and writing level.
In the most sever cases, it's possible to be retarded so far back that the victims enter a life long catatonic state, where - oddly enough - reruns of Sesame Street constantly loop through the victim's mind.
This leads many experts on the condition to believe the Sesame Street reruns, that replay constantly in some victims, are atleast partly responsible for leading the victims to ceaselessly bake cookies and throw them into a garbage can near a road.
It's also suspected to carry a close link to victims who are obssessed with buying massive quantities of batter and constantly mumbling things like 'That is the biggest bird in the Universe, I am never gonna have enough batter for that thing'
Others have been heard mumbling things like, 'All the starving kids in the world and we tolerate a glutton for cookies' or 'We let a massive yellow bird run around without a care in the world, when it could obviously feed a small country for years'
Not all victims are are so resentful in their comments. Some have tried to open centers with a workshop where new numbers can be built all day long.
They propose the building of such a 'number construction' shop could help keep vampires off the street. They believe this will spare many potential victims from the horror of hearing each drop of blood counted as it is slowly sucked out.
ok... I'm done, sorry for any more tyops in fantasyland above... really just tired and amusing myself and thanks for all the repliesedit on 7-7-2012 by esteay812 because: (no reason given)
