Hi,

I know I can subscribe to users, but I don't want to get a message every time they post to a forum, only when they start a new Review thread.

It would be cool if we could subscribe to users in that way as there are some reviewers where I would enjoy reading their reviews when they offer them, but there is no process, that I know of, where I would be notified.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Not sure if there is currently an existing way in the subscriptions implementation...

But, the immediate work-around that came to my mind:
If it is a regular reviewer (which I imagine it would be, given you are following their reviews), suggest to them that they maintain a geeklist of their reviews. Subscribe to the "items" of that geeklist, and you'll be notified whenever they post a new review. Video reviewers do that all the time.

Thanks Yours Truly, but unfortunately these are not prolific reviewers. These are reviewers who might publish a review every year or two (or three).

When you subscribe to a thing (including users), you can customize that subscription. You should be able to use that to only subscribe to, say, videos posted by that user.

If it were video reviews, it would be problem solved. Unfortunately, it is written reviews, and then I would have to subscribe to all threads started by a user, not just their review threads.

What I'd like is to be able to customize it further, so that I can choose which threads to subscribe to.

But one of the options in the filter is for "forum posts" of which reviews are a subset. A video isn't necessarily a review. You could have a video of geek X playing the game.
