  1. This would be quite good. Maybe a little icon in the "your posts" section that lights up if someone has picked up on that witty remark you left in a news article a few days ago. It would save back tracking all the articles for the better ide have thought.

    I don't know if you could do this or not...but hey, just a thought.

    Hi Benny, thanks for your feedback.

    Quite coincidentally we were discussing something very similar with our dev team last week and we are working on it already. The difference with what you propose is that notifications will work for any news post in which you have participated. Only tracking quotes we anticipate could be troublesome because we have in-line styled discussions rather than threaded ones.

    In the meantime, just yesterday we implemented the option for email subscriptions on news discussions which should help you keeping track of what's going on the site.

    Doesn't sound too bad that Julio, look forward to seeing it.

    I thought there might have been a hitch somewhere, like with this in-line discussions you mention. Thats why i wasn't sure.

    Thanks for the reply anyway, and keep up the great work!.

    Benny.
