Quote notfications

I don't seem to be notified when i'm quoted in the forums and can't see any obvious way to switch this this on. Specifically, I'm not seeing any kind of notification next to my user name when i'm browsing the forum itself (I don't want to switch on email notifications or other kind of messaging). Is this a limitation of the forum itself? I notice that Macrumors has this enabled.

MacRumors is running a different version of VBulletin. Not sure if or when we'll ever upgrade considering how much custom stuff we've got built on top of our existing forum software which likely won't transfer over without a lot of work for very little benefit.

I know you guys work super hard and it's appreciated. However quote notification are sorely needed.

Right but we have to pick and choose our battles on stuff like this. As mentioned whenever updating the app comes up, we're a small company and have to be smart with where we devote resources. For instance, there's a bunch of improvements I'd rather make to the front page that'd make a better use experience for way more people than the few folks hardcore enough to need quote notifications.
