Notifications for forum buttons

 

Ideas: Notifications for forum buttons

When Someone likes your post, you get a notification saying who liked it and on what thread at whatever time 

Examples
Dangersdan707 disagreed With your post in Murray basin Standardisation Thread
YM-Mundrambilla found your Post informative in SA to keep the overland going Thread 
And so on

Well? Is it a decent Idea? Most other Forums such as Reddit and social media such as Facebook have a similar system.

This is a great idea.  How would the notification be delivered?

Support this. Terrific idea, sorely missed.

Let's work this.

The requirement is to have a user who has posted a forum post (or added a photo the gallery?), or a location> any where other users can like or praise the post, the user should be advised of that praise via the notifications engine?

chrome popup
mobile app notification
PM?

I just did. Smile

Plus if you have your RP account linked to Facebook then also receive the notification via messenger?

Fairly sure that's not technically possible. Even if it were I think it'd be a bit of overkill. The current notification engine seems sufficient for the job (and has the advantage of being customisable - ie do you want an email, a PM, a popup or all three?)

I was Thinking a system Similar to PMs that just informs the Original poster what others think of there post, you could also probably do this with replies to posts.
Example
bevans Replied to your post in Murray Basin Standardisation at 9.54 pm with a link to the post

The current notifications system is what we will use and we can add facebook messenger to this as required. Yo ur post above suggests you want to know about a reply which you can receive now using the subscribe function.  I plan to extend this to actions on the post itself.

This is a really cool idea and I hope we can see it.  The notifications we get from RP (i get them popping up on chrome) are most useful and would be excellent if you got more granular updates like what is suggested above.

I would personally think twitter announcements would also be useful and I will create the idea for you guys to consider.

I would also add the like updates or actions to the red indicator at the top right of the RP website screen as a separate notification class.
