Our gaming community has about 1,500 members, each playing a different game/games at any given time. I'm looking for a way a member can 'subscribe' to a specific thread, aside for the normal 'watching thread', and be emailed/texted when there is information posted.
Creating usergroups for each gamer is impossible with so many members, with many coming and going in a game so often, and using admin email reaches all 1,500 instead of just those playing a certain game.
So, for example, if I wanted to create a thread called 'Black Desert Online Game Updates' and have it email/text/notify each member who 'subscribed' to it each time an update was posted ... is there a function or mod that would allow me to do that without making everyone uncheck the 'automatically watch threads you create or reply in'.
Rather than emailing all 1,500 members, I'm looking for a communications tool that will only communicate to those members that 'subscribe' or 'opt in' for the updates, without relying on just checking the forums all the time.
I'd want them to be able to opt in and opt out of the information feed.
