[Feature] Thread/Reply watcher [Feasable] (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2007-10-18 00:41 ID:KPEW+MRb

One feature that I would really love to see on 4-ch is a thread or reply watcher. I have no real right to request this as I couldn't do any programming on it, but at least I can describe what I think would be good!

Basically, the feature would operate like those old PHPBBs.
- When you make a thread, there is a box that you can check to be notified of replies. Then every page you visit on 4-ch will have a little box or something on top or somewhere that notifies you when there is a new reply, and how many new replies there have been.
- When you reply to a thread, you get the same checkbox option.
- Perhaps there could be an option to be notified only when your post number is used, so for example you're only notified when someone posts something with >>34 in their post. (If 34 was your post number.)

Just some ideas. This could become a FF extension like on 4chan too, but I think it would be nicer if it was built into the boards somehow.

Oops, my tag was supposed to be [Feasable?]

Very different meaning, sorry.

And I spelled it wrong. I suck.

I'd rather not have it built into the boards, but I'd have no real problem in assisting 3rd parties in making a browser extension or something that does it.

It'd be nice if it were built into the boards seeing as not all browsers have some sort of extension feature. I use Opera and it doesn't have the extention feature Firefox has.

I think most users just use the RSS feeds and be done with it. Since there is no database, there is no user accounts, making a system that does it would take a lot of effort for little gain. I stand by my previous statement.
