Notification feature!

Sponsored Links
This site really could use a notification or alert feature so that we can better communicate with one another.

I just joined another avian site two weeks ago, and I am having a blast. Why? Because I am alerted to when somebody replies to my response or post, and therefore I can respond back to them.

I don't know what it is about this site but whenever I respond to a reply, my response is ignored. I have tried direct response, quoting response and the results are the same.

For example I posted a thread on this site and got about four responses. I posted the same thread on the other site and got about four pages of responses, which I could keep flowing because I was notified of their replies.

I honestly can not see how to exchange ideas if the conversation is dropped after only ONE response. If it weren't for Scott (thank you!) most of my posts would be one hit wonders.

Or ****, maybe I am being ignored, which if true the other site might be a better fit.

Another question. Why can't new members exchange PM's with other members? It says we have to post a certain number of threads but doesn't say the number. It kind of makes a new member feel like the stepchild.

Anyway, Peace out.

Thank you. But I have this feeling you won't be seeing my reply.

Re: Notification feature!

The 20 post minimum is to keep spammers from spamming everyone's inbox before a Mod can catch them.
Just because someone doesn't reply to your post, it doesn't mean they are ignoring you...may just mean they have nothing to contribute

Re: Notification feature!

only if I subscribe to a thread that you are also subscribed to.

20 post's are the minimum before PM's are allowed. I don't know the reason for this.

Re: Notification feature!

I see you have been thanked 79 times.

I don't think you are being ignored.

For myself I don't follow the Cockatoo thread at all and I have no Budgies.
I read about Budgies but don't have much that I can say without direct experience with them.

Re: Notification feature!

I would really love to engage guys, but I doubt you will see my response. We have to "subscribed " to the same post to keep a conversation going?

But good point made about what kind of bird it has to be. Seems like Grey's are the top birds around here.

Can you see me? I kind of doubt it.

My posts were completely neutral, meaning a owner of ANY kind of bird could chime in.

Re: Notification feature!

I did see you, and replied. The Active Topic section is where I spend most of my time as that shows all the current threads, regardless of which forum they are posted in.
