Something I just noticed is if you use the quick reply it is not added to your Followed list
But the full editor has a checkbox and it is enabled by default.

The only option I see is to just enable or disable the quick reply in the cp.

Is there something in the works for this?

Its probably an oversight and can be easily fixed. Nice find!

Beyond adding to the user preference page an option of, "Should posts you reply to be added to your followed lists?" AND having it determine the check-box state in the full editor, what else would you advise?

Giving the user the option to enable or disable would be great.
That watched list is like the tooltip tool some users love it and some hate it.
And want to select which items to watch. As well as if they want the tooltip.
Instead of forcing it on them yea or nay with the user not having a choice.

+1 Toggle.

As for tooltip, I think he means this.

Yes, that is it Giz.
Many moons ago SD had a simple mod using one of the custom profile fields to allow the user to turn it off or on

user selectable tooltip preferences

thanks guys

"tooltip" is a strange name for something that is neither a tool or a tip. "topic preview hover-over" may be a longer phrase, but its more descriptive.

ill look in to whats needed for making this a user toggle/option, rather than a site global option.

thanks for bringing this up, ruben

I agree on making them both a user preference only.
Unless they create a large overhead on the server.
And yes instead of topic tooltip preview. it should say something like topic preview on hover.
But that is the way it has been since it was introduced since like v7.5??? 2011 anyway.
