Forum Watch Modification

I have been asked by several devs and others about setting up a mail to forum gateway.  As far as I know this IS very possible but I am not even going to attempt to implement it for some time.  In the mean time would people be interested in a forum watch modification that allows you to watch specific boards for posts in the same way that you can watch topics?

The way I envision it most people can happily watch the announcements section on the boards and people with individual interests can watch the AUR discussion board or the CD//FTP install support board.  It'd be pretty handy for the forum team for watching to moderator forum too I guess.

If you would like to see this mod implemented please vote in the poll.  The mod requires some quite extensive changes and if people are not interested then I just won't bother smile

I have a minimum number of votes in mind and the decision will be at my discretion, well, unless Judd vetos it smile  It is a 7 day poll

I'd rather enjoy a rss mod.

Re: Forum Watch Modification

There already is one implemented in the new forums...if people actually bothered to sign-up for the new forum and check it out then they would already know that

Re: Forum Watch Modification

I voted yes, as I would use this in cases when I am very busy. However, I suggest you take this as a 0.5 vote, because I doubt I'd use it regularly enough to make it worth your while.

Re: Forum Watch Modification

I recently realized that the new RSS mod provides a much better way of watching the forums than the forum watch mod.

I strongly encourage everyone to use it.

Here are some I made earlier.  They don't get parsed well by phpbb so I have enclosed them in code brackets

Top 5 active topics in announcements board:

Most recent 15 AUR discussion threads:
