    How does Follows work actually? First I was exposed it is a kind of Twitter. What does the function do?

    It allows you to stalk people.

    Also, I think you get alerts each time they create a thread / post or something.

    You can follow people that interest you and they show up in the news feed. It makes it easy to keep track of what they are posting.

    Not alerts as such but they appear in your news feed.

    Kinda like the friends option from other forum software but much more extensible.

    Ah okay. Never bothered to follow anyone, but when I watched a thread that was what happened. Thanks for clarifying. :)

    From another thread about this:

    Ok, I was stalking person A, then added person B & C to my stalking list.

    But B & C are not showing up in my newsfeed even though they have made many posts, so changes to the list only affect the future?

    I am thinking this could be an excellent moderating too. I can sense when someone is about to mis-behave on our forms, if that is the way it works then I could stalk them for a few days and check their posts.

    Thanks, I needed to farther back in time to see the other peoples posts.

    I am following you and Kier to learn as much about what is going on as possible, so I can quietly learn, as opposed to asking questions others have already asked.

    I still think this will make a fantastic moderating tool on our forum :)
