Why are you debating this? You asked for a drawback, I gave you one. FFS.You say Forcing ?
I say helping ?
Newbies will probably see it as good customer service.
Forum rats like the OP and all the repliers aren't the best judges on this one.
Uh. I said you are not a newbie. So, you don't understand what newbies want.I had been using forum software for over 10 years before buying Xen Foro. I don't need hand holding when I sign up to a bloody forum.
I do.If you actually ran a site or two, you'd know this.
I remember when xenforo held that discount for RM's had they been able to watch announcements then yes. This would have also benefited regular active users who at the time so that would be a benefit and a pro. Drawback is they would need to switch to unwatch if they are active.
You realise this is a suggestion for XenForo.com to force customers registering on this site to watch the Announcements forum?I think its an awesome idea because we could either have them auto watch like even a Sponsors forum for deals going on - with only regular alerts not emails.
Maybe like up to 3x a month etc.
