    Add the "Who Quoted Me?" mod. Basically whenever someone quotes you it shows up in your user CP. Another forum I go on uses it and it is great. Thoughts?

    If the site had more supporting members, maybe it could justify the added expense.

    What would be the point? Right now, when someone quotes you, the thread shows up on your User CP in your subscribed threads.

    Why would you need a second notice?

    Any thread you post in shows up in your subscribed threads. The thread would only pop up in your CP if someone quoted you in a thread.

    A lot of threads eventually end up being pissing contests between two or three people and it gets to the point where using subscribed threads is pointless because all you do is see Immie throwing more shit at TM for the 87th time in the thread.

    Notification of when someone quoted you would be a nice feature, IMHO.

    With your way, how would you know if someone replied to you without quoting you? That does happen quite often around here.

    Just curious but are there not various icons that tell you when a thread is hot or old or what have you? Why not one that tells you that you were quoted since the last time you entered the thread?

    I'm sure it could be done,but again, why?

    Just look at this thread alone. Moderate replied to 2 different posters without quoting them. This thread would not show up on a list or with an icon.
