TA forums features requests

There are two features from other forums that I kinda miss here:
  1. Receiving a notification when someone quotes one of your posts.
  2. Using @(user name) to "call" someone (that user would get a notification for this).

I would love to have a feature so you can see and select from all the threads that you have commented on. This would be great a way we can stay on top of the conversations. It's a little pain to go back and search for the threads you commented in to see what people are saying.

If you select your username (or anyone else's, for that matter and "Find all posts", that does precisely what you're asking for.

Is this for the TA app? I selected my name and can't find that option. I have also looked in my control panel and can't find that option.

You cannot do that in the app. Just checked it out and apparently there's no way to do it. Hm.

You can go to TA from the browser and change your setting to automatically subscribe to threads you a comment on, after that you can just go straight to subscribed threads from the app and they will be there, It won't work for past threads but will work from the moment you change the settings.

Everyone comments about that reply but not about what I said in the OP.

Hey VaroFN sorry about your initial post. I read it and totally missed your suggestions for the app probably because it was gray. Yeah I'm not sure if those features are implemented, but most of the options for notifications are on the main site. I agree with your suggestions too. Here's the link to the notifications option if you need it. Funny pic Btw lol!
