Rather than getting an email every post, send one email a day with all of them.

Older versions of UBB had this.

my two cents worth

Thanks,
Thomas

Or even only send one mail until such time as you return to the forum.

I like the idea of digest mode; some threads/forums we subscribe to get a lot of traffic, so one email for every action seems insane...

no this is different Mark - the request here is to inform you of new posts only once, rather than for every new post made in a thread.

And the e-mails saying that you will receive no other e-mails until you visit that thread?

You are correct.

In the older versions where this was supported, you ran a cron as often as you would like, I ran mine once at midnight.

If a user had a forum/thread set for subscription in digest mode, you received all of the posts for THAT DAY in one email.

If there were no posts the next day you received nothing.

If there were some on the third day, you received only those in the email.

Whats the best way to get this in the rotation to be added?

Do i get a signed petition ;-)

Thanks everyone!

Hmm, maybe there's a bit of confusion on my part.

What I'd like to see is a smarter subscription mechanism. By smarter, I mean that you get notified once when a watched thread has a new reply, but you won't get notified again until you visit that thread.

Of course, I'd like to see this as an option. Some users like to following a thread purely through email, while others prefer following it in the forum. An email per post gets a bit unruly in really busy threads for the latter group.

Also, I'm not sure this needs a cron job to manage?

I also would like to see a digest mode.

I just upgraded from 6.2 to 7.3 and the digests we're heavily used on our system.


Today they call you "crazy".
Tomorrow they call you "ahead of your time".

That would be a huge improvement, IMO.
