Hi Guest!

Our website stays online because of the support of our advertisers. A huge part of them are from banner ads that appear on our site. While some of them seems to be intrusive for some, these ads are needed to keep our community running and continue providing free membership service for buyers.

In light to this, we request that you disable ad blocking programs or add our website to your ad blocker's whitelist. This keeps us from offering our basic membership to everyone for free and help with maintenance costs of our website.

    Does anyone else think the new(ish) Alerts feature on this forum is real website win?

    I find it more addictive to log back in and see if anyone's interacted with my posts. It would be even better if you got an alert each time there was a new response to a thread you had posted it so you can keep track of replies that havent quoted you easier.

    Anyway, think it's a cool feature that enhances the forum, wd!!

    There should also be a feature where you can gain a members attention. E.G if you see a thread by someone who is requestiong hosting, could put @redspell or @pete or @saajan or whatever and they would get a notification in case they missed the thread.
    Saajan likes this.

    I believe you can. Make sure you have "watched threads" ticked in your alerts preferences.

    I really like the yellow numbers that appear on top of Alerts. Tiny but very eye catching! And when I miss them, it's floating on the left corner of the screen. Pretty cool.

    When I log back and there are no alerts, I am sad :(.... :D It's one element of addiction, I think.

    I was thinking of posting a similar thread about these features. I wonder who has the highest number of Alerts in a given time when s/he logs in.

    I actually love it to bits, I think someone named Anthony came up with the idea :D

    Now I can't imagine not having it and like what our MOTM says, I get sad too when I get zero alerts haha

    If you're on Facebook, they have a similar notifications feature but I find our Alerts load even faster without interrupting the page you're currently in.

    I like the Alerts feature as well. It's the first thing I check before browsing the forum.
    I'm always excited to read the posts to my threads and to the threads I replied to. :)

    Sometimes some threads you started or left a post on don't flag up. Nothing major, just thought I would mention it.
