My monthly hand wave for Notifications
Thu, 09-19-2013 - 1:58pm

Just want to keep this fresh on the list.  We need notifications!!!  The work around is just too much work and clearly not the intended way of doing it.  We also used to get notified if we had a private message.  Can't even use pm to get a hold of someone not posting if they aren't getting notified. 

Does a CM know if anything is being done (however they do it) to get new posters?  I had one today on MSMW and about fell out of my chair, it is so rare now.  I hope that is a good sign of things to come.

Hi Serenity,

It's something they are working on. It's not an option so it has to be developed, coded, and programmed. No need to keep it fresh. We definitely know it's needed and they are actively working on getting it going. :)

There are notifications for PMs though. If you don't turn on the email notications for it in your settings (Private Messenger tab), you get a  notice at the top of the board screen as well as a number on this line:
My Private Messages (0 unread) in the quick links section.

I'm not sure what you mean about getting new members. iVillage is promoted and we have ads, and all that good stuff, but there's no exact way to get new members. Mostly new members post when they see an board is active and inviting. :)
