    Hey guys,

    Just thinking about how to make email notifications better. I don't know if the vBulletin technology allows this, or if it is extendible in any way, but I'll say it anyway:

    I'd like to see a system whereby you are emailed:

    • Whenever somebody quotes you
    • Whenever somebody names you in their post
    • Whenever somebody links to your post

    There are so many cases when I unsubscribe from threads because they get too busy (or for whatever reason), and I go back later and find that people have been quoting and responding to me, and I had absolutely no idea.

    Are these "next-gen" notifications possible via plugins? Would anybody else be interested in seeing them?

    I think the first two notifs you listed would be nice.
    How about when and what post somebody thanks us from also, and who it was from.

    These are all great ideas!! Hopefully they can be implemented along with a thanks button for the mobile site =). Lol
