    Up until a few months ago we were notified whenever one of our quotes were posted, including when our quoted quote was quoted ( :P), or a 'pyramid quote' as some called it. If I remember correctly some members found this irritating and the feature was removed.

    Personally I was of the opposite opinion and I have since missed when people have replied to a conversation started by me, thus I do not get to read what others have to say if I happen to not check the topic. I was wondering whether it would be possible to add an option in the User CP to re-enable this feature.

    Thanks,
    Wizzerzak.

    Giving an option to enable it and disable it is a pretty good idea. That way those annoyed by it can just disable it.

    I also find this logical.

    I'll add my vote too, with an option to disable it everyone's a winner.

    For the record, if you take a look at the quoting code when you reply, nested quotes include "nonotify" which, at least for the meantime could be manually removed.

    Any guesses as to what that will do? :ninja:

    Of course, that is an hassle.

    Agreed.

    Another way around this temporarily is to just follow the topics. While you'll get notified whenever there's a reply, you'll at least be able to keep up with the conversation. I have it set to auto-follow all topics I post in so I can reply quickly in help topics and such.

    I added a separate notification setting for it (right below the other one).
    It'll still add "nonotify", but it'll be ignored.

    Since this is kinda a closed issue, can i ask another question/pose request? Is it possible to "unfollow" or whatever a certain person's status? Say I make a comment on a status and then i get my answer or whatever, and then 20 more people have a conversation there. Is there a way to stop receiving notifications for that specific status without just turning off my status reply notifications?
