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.

If someone does "insert user" and inserts your avatar into a post, you'd get notified in subscriptions. Kind of like how you can tag someone in a FB post. That way you know why your ears are burning

Apologies if this has been already suggested, I didn't see it. (Add to suggestions: an easily searchable database of BGG suggestions and BGG bugs devil)

[q="JohnnyDollar"]Apologies if this has been already suggested, I didn't see it.


Automatic notification of user being used in a post:
17/14 05-01-12 Notification of users talking about you (by Blott)
16/07 05-01-12 Automatic subscription to your own avatar (by UnknownParkerBrother)

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that Geeklist. I put it in my quickbar.

From what I can tell, it's a popular suggestion over the last 3 years, but no "status" as of yet...

Because it would make it harder for us to feel superior to other gamers by talking about them

Re: Notify if someone has inserted you into a post-pardon regression
While 'moi' would urgently "Like" to 'impose' a 'post' inserted into some of YOU-ALLs, especially them's whose cranium "were" located where such ought to "B"-longing with just THUS! To assist with "prodding that loose", of course! These of whom have 'moi' *plonq'd* should undergo any: "TWO TIMES!"

Does subscribing to yourself work for this purpose?

I don't think it would work, because "users" appearing in a post are not part of the current subscription system.

Too bad, I figured it was like an image, if it is in a post then it triggers a tracking subscription.

Nope, didn't work. Didn't even got a notification that I had posted a reply. I think subscribing to yourself does diddly-squat.

Am I the only one wondering how anyone could fail to notice someone inserting you into a post - or worse, inserting a post into you?

No, I think Grognads was alluding to that too, although you have to be able to read Grognadese to figure that out

Or you could just smile and nod and back away. It's really the best course of action.
