    I wasn't sure which topic to put this under so I put it under technology. After reading some of the other threads, and realizing how often we all refer to one another, I thought it would be handy if you could use an @ symbol like on Twitter and get an email so you'll know whenever you're mentioned in a thread.

    Anyone else think this would be a good idea? Maybe if it picks up steam the site can add in this feature.

    Well I did come up with the idea while I was searching through threads but I'm rarely mentioned in the threads so it wouldn't apply to me. When I have tracked a topic though it can be annoying to search for my name to see if someone directly replied to a comment I posted.

    I like this idea actually, actually there are a couple of other things I'd like implemented as well. Mainly some sort of highlight/sorting feature for messages sent from people on your buddy list. Would make things a little easier, especially for people who get hit with a lot of messages (like say a MOTD winner).

    Honestly I wonder how much of this could be fixed with userscripts, but I'm no good at making those.

    Well, they do offer an RSS feed for recent forum posts. Oddly enough they don't offer RSS feeds for each of the sub-forums.

    Yeah I guess by now this site has reached the volume of users that would warrant something like that. On the other hand, it does reek a bit like facilitating ego stroking, so there might be some other things that take priority.

    Some enhancements of the inbox would be good though.

    Having said that - this site is technically well put together, and I'd hate to go from an almost flawless site to a load of buggy beta features just because we all decided it's time to get cute with ajax.

    I don't use twitter so I have no idea what you mean.

    yeah, facebook calls it "tagging". that'd be a good idea.

    Last June, I met one of the owners/founders of RealJock by accident in Upstate New York. He's an incredibly nice guy. It was really funny because it was just SO random and totally out of the blue. He asked me what I thought about the site and what suggestions I had. He seemed incredibly invested and interested in the site and I took that to heart. One of my suggestions: "Get a RealJock app up as soon as possible" for the iPhone. He said, "Well, of course!"

    Hopefully, he may read this thread and take you up on your suggestion. I wouldn't be surprised if he did. icon_smile.gif

    Charlitos would probably not like that idea, considering how many people drool over him, perv out over his pics, and post threads about him. icon_lol.gif

    And Belloo, TBA, and ac2394 would be getting from the opposite end. Sometimes it might be better to not know when you are being discussed.

    True. I prefer to be in the dark about anyone talking about me.

    I also think it would be nice for a notification for when someone replies to you. icon_cool.gif

    Notifications sound nice, but I'd really much rather have next/previous links or buttons in the mailbox. It's a little obnoxious to have to go back to the Inbox just to see the next message.

    It wouldn't matter. It's attention, attention...in large colorful letters, bold-faced all over the place... :-)

    The search feature SHOULD be used to do this "@" feature, but the search feature on RJ hardly works to the point to where it should.

    RJ has a search feature? @I'mSoSurprised
