Thread quote response alerts???

Hey there all, Ive been wondering for some time why our site here doesn't have alerts when you've been quoted? I belong to a snowmobiling site with literally the same template/format as SigTalk, that site alerts you if you've been quoted.
I think it helps threads along when one knows someone is "talking back" to them. Often I forget to check back in on a thread due to life etc... so this feature has often been a good reminder for me.

What say you all???

Mods- is this feature do-able?

bs

Moved this from the Sig Pistols forums. Moderators are not administrators and as such do not have the ability to configure the system.

You can subscribe to a thread that you have participated in, but it's not the same as receiving an alert that you were quoted.

VBulletin does not have the built in capability to provide quote notifications. There are hack add-ons that are available for this but obviously have not been implemented on this site and I doubt they will be.

Tapatalk implements this in it's software as I understand it and is not a part of this site software.

If I am quoting someone, whose post I agree with, I make sure to hit the “like”button first. They will be informed of the “like”. When I am informed of a “like” on my post, I go back to that point in the thread, and start reading forward from there.

I know that this leaves an opening for missing conversations with those that I DO NOT agree with, or that DO NOT agree with me. As a rule, I do not agonize over unpleasant encounters that I haven’t had

By and large, my SigTalk conversations have been a positive addition to my life, and sanity.
