BBS Option to Notify Off by Default

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

BBS Option to Notify Off by Default

Post by paradiselost » Fri Mar 04, 2016 9:42 pm

When one posts you will never know when someone replys because the tick is off in Notify. If one is never notified a solution to their problem is by chance if they ever come back.

Please make the default Notify.

There seems to be a long-running discussion on the phpBB forums about whether admins should be able to configure that. At the moment they can't, at least not without changing the site's code:

However, you can change your own preferences so that you get notified on replies. Click your name in the top-right, choose User Control Panel | Board Preferences | Edit Posting Defaults. Change "Notify me upon replies by default" to yes and then click submit.
