Or comments posted to other uploaded material?

For major contributors to this site, with hundreds+ images, files, etc...it's rather a pain in the arse to have to keep trolling through everything you've done to see if someone posted a comment, or reply to a comment. With no notification...ugggh. Just plain unpleasant!

I've taken to manually geekmailing a poster when I reply to something of theirs that I know they will get no system notification of, but...it's a hack solution, and if it's a big thread, with a lot of posts...

yep - here's another vote for that function.

I'm also wasting BGG time checking for comments where I should be able to be notified.

Once again, I say - amazing site - fantastic community. This is an observation and friendly critisim - good job Aldie and Derk!

I think it's assumed all comments and thumbs are a 'yes' vote.

Exactly! And what we also need is some notification that new material (items, item comments or general comments) has been added to one of the GeekLists you've marked as "favourite" so you don't have to super-check them to see if there's been something new.

But I'd much prefer a browser (like the universal browser/recent additions for game forums) than a GeekMail notification. You can imagine if I got a GeekMail each time some new forum comment was added for any of my games in my collection! It's probably the same for guys with hundreds of nice creative pictures (that tend to spark comments) or a guy who reads lots of GeekLists.

So, give us a "Recent addditions" in the form of "recent comments to images/files you uploaded or have marked as interesting" and "recent additions to GeekLists you've marked as favourite"!

So has anyone sent a Geekmail to the admins about this idea and this post?

Great idea by the way, I've always wished for the same thing when it comes to images. Perhaps when you upload a picture there could be a box with a "Send me a message when a reply is posted" option.

I believe this function is slated to be worked on right after RPGGeek is up.

I still cannot understand how this has not been done yet.

This would be CLEARLY something useful for most of the users, essential for many, and it seems that it gets pushed again and again towards the end of the priority list by other "arguable" minor improvements on things that already worked...

So please, could someone work on this?

A personal browser of 'all my submitted content with updated items' wouldn't be a bad idea, actually.

Is this...serious? Or one of those 'when pigs fly' phrases? (Honest question - I have no idea how 'serious' RPGGeek, which is often mentioned around here, happens to be)

In the meantime, I would suggest people to send geekmails to the owner when they have a comment on a picture/file instead of posting a comment, if they are looking for an answer...

...which I've tried to do! Would be great if everyone did it.

At least, until this issue is fixed.

THEN we are golden.

Doesn't look like this is going on yet.
