Could HubPages add the option to be e-mailed when a forum topic is updated? That would save people from having to repeatedly check the thread or hubtivity to see if there's been a reply.
I agree, it would be nice. I have trouble remembering which ones I contributed to sometimes.
Good grief no thank you - some of these thread scan get at little heated.. Just hit the "your" button at the top of the page.
I'm not suggesting that it should be mandatory to be notified by e-mail, just that a checkbox be put in every thread that allows the option. The default setting could be to have the box unchecked, so you'd have to actively choose it to get the e-mails. Most forums offer something like that.
That would allow you to forego e-mails on heated topics!
Well in that case....... I could just envisage 267 emails telling me a thread I had offended some one on had been updated.
Seriously - there is a button at the top which allows you to see if there has been any activity on a thread you have been involved on. Would that not work in this case?
The other day I had an issue affecting about 100 of my hubs and it would have been great to just get e-mail notification that Paul had responded in the forum about it being fixed. It was important, because I had put text related to the error on a few of my hubs that were getting huge traffic and I wanted to remove that text as soon as it was no longer relevant.
If I had e-mail updates on that thread, I could have just unsubscribed from it as soon as I got the answer I needed.
It's far much easier than clouding your inbox with hundreds of thread updates.
If you guys are truly daunted by such a prospect..you would probably benefit all round by taking a half hour to organize and set filters and labels in your inboxes.
setting all hubpages.com mail to skip the inbox and go to a hubpages folder is not very difficult...but than again..hmm..checking that folder is just as much work as clicking the "your" tab
I remove my support for a subscribe option but still sing the praises of proper inbox organization
its pretty common to have a subscribe to comments or subscribe to thread option, im surprised we dont have one already.
im embarassed, but I do check back at the "your" tab, more than i would like to admit..a subscribe option would be excellent..or even an rss feed
It wouldnt effect my inbox as I have a pretty complex level of filters set up through gmail
I need to use this technique. My Inbox looks like someone sneezed mail into it.

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

I was just curious. I have not seen a lot of hubbers that have been here at Hubpages for over two years..perhaps they are too busy hubbing away!

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent, rather than being taken to that response, we come to the start of the last page...
