We have a new feature I decided to role ahead of the other improvements I'm working on. Under each forum topic, photo gallery, pet profile, and Doberman Guide article - there's a link you can click (next to what I tried to make look like a pair of eyes) which will add that page to your Watcher list.

When someone updates or adds a comment to a page on your Watcher list, by default, you'll receive an email. You can change your settings at Account -> My Watched Posts -> Settings.

Settings include:

  • Automatically enable email notifications for posts that I start watching
    • Send email notification when a post is updated or edited
    • Send email notification when a post receives a new comment
       
  • Automatically watch posts that I comment on
  • Automatically watch posts that I make
     
  • Share my list of watched posts

Account -> My Watched Posts will list all the posts you're watching, like bookmarks, and allow you to remove old ones and activate/deactivate email notifications.

I've also added a link to the bottom of each post "Flag as Inappropriate." Although we've only had one spam post so far on the new site, I figure it's best to be prepared. Clicking this will send me an email so I can investigate. If two people flag a post, it will be automatically hidden until I get around to deleting it. We can also use this flag is someone is getting out of line.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that - the summer holiday, a month or two off over the summer. I haven't seen SoldierRN around either.

I noticed he was MIA. Dabbles and QTip, RnD, and I remember a great lady who had Dallas and Lucky..Geez. what was her name? ( oops just remembered. .Annette). Judi came and went..Todax had some great videos of Bane...  Maybe that's just the way of forums... Glad we have new members.. Hope they'll stay a while.. It's a great forum. I've investigated and joined others.. but they're just not the same. Too big.

YOU'RE not going anywhere are you??

Alpha's like Yoda; we love Alpha!   I just read this thread today as I usually confine myself to "General" and "Tell us about your dogs."  I've been seeing the pair of eyes and had no clue what this was.  Most excellent, Alpha; thank you!!!

Yoda!! How funny!! ( I'll bet he's a lot cuter than Yoda though..) Ria of QTip calls him "Webby"... I like that too..

Dear Yoda, Webby, Alpha~~

Thank you for everything you do.. not only do you keep this forum going, your suggestions are always sound and valuable!!
