Actually, this topic came first. It even came before mine!

If you see this signature while scrolling, you have been visited by ʎ++ haskal. Lazy evaluation, monads, function purity, lambdas, currying, partial application, algebraic data types, pattern matching, and typeclasses will come to you, but only if you comment, “Thanks, ʎ++ haskal” on my profile.

I think there would be barely any spam if the following rules applied to this:
  • There would only be a message sent if the “quote” button was pressed and the quote was not later removed.
  • There would only be one message sent per user per post; if you pressed the quote button multiple times the user would still only receive one message.
This way, you could only receive a new quoted message every 60 seconds - the only problem is that someone could quote every person on the thread per post to get multiple users at once, but quite honestly I don't think that would happen. Or, if it did, a third rule could also be added:
  • You would not get a new message from the same thread until you visited that thread.
I guess it could also be optional just to make people happy, but I think it should be on by default so those newer to the forums who unfollow their own threads could be notified through quotes if somebody had important information.
Support for this.


What happens if a user is double quoted, like this?

user3's post wrote:

Here's a quote:

user2 wrote:

Quote:

user1 wrote:

Example
Do user1 and user2 get notified or just user2?
Just the person the quote button is pressed on.

OK.
If when I click the quote button and delete that user's quote (I do this to get text like the stickies sometimes), it doesn't send a notification, then support.

A signature is a small piece of text that isn't attached to your posts. In it, you can enter just about nothing you want. Perhaps you would like to enter your favourite quote or your star sign, but you can't. It's not up to you! In your signature you can use BBCode if it is allowed in this particular forum, but it isn't. You can't see the features that are allowed/enabled listed below whenever you edit your signature.

make it optional on a post by post basis - a checkbox on each post.

No support. I WOULD like it to be added, but it would be impossible according to cheddargirl.

It would be nice, but given the way the forum structure works, there wouldn't be a way to add it in, I'm afraid.

It looks like this is a duplicate topic of this one over here so I'll close it to keep the conversation all in one place.

You should get a notification when you are quoted in a topic that you didn't necessarily want to follow but now you know if someone replied to you. It would only send a notification when it quotes directly you, not if you are deep in the quote chain.
Look at the top notification:

I am not good a HTML don't judge .
Thoughts? Ideas?
I LOVE THIS IDEA!!! support.

I'm not really sure if anyone pointed this out yet, but I don't feel like reading through the 6 pages of spam quotes, sooo…

system is only text-based. When you input
[quote=user0]
you're just telling the computer to write “user0”. It's like the @ symbol. The website takes that symbol, assumes the username after the @ is a valid username and automatically links it to that users page. It's not like a variable or anything.
I know I'm not explaining it well, but I think you understand.
No support unless the system can workaround this.

Not to mention when someone quotes a post with your quote in it

Though I'm assuming before posting (in the stage where all those links turn into clickable links) those quote= names could be detected and a message could be sent (however messages are sent) to the user who was quoted.
Maybe quotes inside quotes are ignored?

It wasn't a necropost, it was just because someone was led here via duplicate.

Support! This would help so much! Though we would have to have a toggle option for people who have stickied posts. So toggle one post, all notifications, one forum? All of those?

You're gonna close it eh? Nice one.
Either way, did I already support this? If not, support, but if what scrooge200 said about it being impossible is true, this whole thing is futile maybe with 3.0?

no necroposts on the suggestions as long as it isn't implemented? :D
