KingGeorge

I suggested this a while ago, and would like to do so again, and hopefully get some more feedback from other users this time around. In the settings, we are given the option to let OS send us an email if someone sends us a message and/or tags us in a post. I would like to suggest a new option of "Email me if someone I fanned mentioned me in a post," and "Email me if someone I fanned sends me a message." Thoughts? Suggestions? Pros? Cons? [EDIT:] Just to be clear, this is about adding another option to allow for anybody to message/tag me, but to email me only if I have fanned them.

    The mentioned and message settings both have an option for "People I'm a fan of".

    But sometimes, I'm logged off, listening to some music doing some of my own stuff, and want to take a break from OS. However, some of the people on here I've grown to know quite well. Some of these people, I would gladly log back on to help with a question they have.

    Right. I still don't understand how this isn't satisfied by our current settings.

    speaking of e-mails..would be fun if we get e-mailed when we get warned right? what's the downside to that @farmdawgnation ?

    We do send you an email when you are warned.

    Basically, so I don't get spammed by people tagging me/messaging me that want my help only because I have a relatively high level.

    KingGeorge: Right, but why wouldn't you just set your filter to "People I'm a fan of" then?

    When I'm logged on, I want to see all of the mentions/messages I get even if they're not from people I've fanned. My suggestion is to keep the notifications as they are, just add an extra option for email.

    Since you've decided to link to this as evidence it's ok to tag admins I'll point out we never sad that we didn't tag each other to call attention to a post. We just don't want you guys tagging us all the time. :P
