Hi,

while I think you do a great job running this forum, and it looks good, and seems to work fine with quite alot of browsers, there are some small things I miss from other forums:

- email notifications are being sent over and over again; most forums send it only once for each topic, until you have visited the forum again, this is anoying and spammy
- not possible to subscribe on individual threads, meaning I either get mails for everything or nothing within a forum area
- it would be interesting that if you make a post in a thread, you get a checkbox to enable email notifications for that particular thread
- if you reply to a thread, you loose the context, unless you do a quick reply, but that edit box is way to small to make a desent post most of the time; some forums display the mail or thread you reply to also in the post editor

Greetings, Andete

Hey, HTML mail is done on purpose - in order to show cyrillics in readable form.
But maybe it should be configurable from user account settings...

andete - so just because the mails changed from plain txt to HTML you don't like the notifications anymore? Yaiks Wink Either way, I'm working on quite a few tweaks, optimizations, bugfixes and small new features (I don't have the time to do 'big stuff' atm), and have some ideas on making the forum notification system a lot nicer.. dunno if I can implement it soon tho...

Yeah, I'm quite oldfashioned, I prefer plain txt mail.
Isn't UTF-8 and co made for cyrillics?

Good to hear you're considering updating the forum notification system Smile

Just like andete I also dislike HTMl mails, and I did even unsubscribe from some lists because of it.
So please please please make it configurable.
