can we have notifications like the ones we get on facbook here?

i need to either wait for an email notification if i m offline or keep refreshing the topics page several times when i m online to see if anyone has replied with any solution. i think simple notifications like the facebook's will make the user experience much better in this forum :)

thanks ... :)

When you write a post, you can get an email notification by checking Notify me when a reply is posted (see screenshot):


If you want to receive notifications for every post, go to this page (you'll need to be logged in), and click Yes next to Notify me upon replies by default:

thanks a lot Rich :)

but after having these preferences set will i get notifications on the forum or an email notification will be sent to my inbox? i was actually talking about getting instant notifications on the forum (not email notifications). :)

Ah I understand now. At this time, email notification is the only automated alert system for responses.

RSS feeds are a good way to keep tabs on things.

Thanks Stu. I've marked this topic as solved as these are both solutions. Real-time alerting may come one day but not now.
