Lack of Interest Watch Thread - Original Poster (OP) Reply Alert

    Please forgive me if it's been suggested already. If this is the wrong place I apologize again, not being a forum owner severely limits the options available, this fit best to my limited knowledge.

    Several of the forums I frequent, two of which use XenForo, participate in writing fiction. An often repeated request I see is for the option of being able to receive an alert when the thread creator replies.

    I imagine it'd look something like this.


    Thank you for your time.

    I agree. A lot of my users do a lot of creative writing and roleplay and this is a feature that they ask for fairly consistently.

    This just seems like bloat to me. You already get alerts when a reply is made and they show who.

    Yeah, I suppose that for XenForo as a whole it might be asking for too much. But I didn't have access to Resource and Add-on Requests so this was the best available option I could see.

    What you're suggesting, though, pretty much already happens.

    Not quite.

    You can get an alert from the most recent new post, by anyone, but if that's what I wanted I can use the Watched Threads page. No, what I want is for the alert to tell me when the original poster of the thread makes a new post in said thread. This is mainly to skip over most the conversation that someone wouldn't care for seeing, which the current alert method does not do at all.
