Default New forum idea

You should be able to subscribe to a thread, and it should pop up on the top of the screen if there is any new posts. Also, why not spend money Yerfbucks for advertising your thread

The advertising thing seems cool, will it be __ Y$ per month?

People will read the threads that interest them: Any sort of advertising will not help.

The ad could get them interested.

I personally do not believe the advertising is a good idea. I think it would pollute Hamumu.

I hate ads. But I'm curious. Where do you suggest that ads would go?

I hate ads too. I think it would just clog up everything.

I'm mostly against the possible ads feature (even if you could advertise for free). However, if the idea was going to be used here and I had to deal with it, it would be a good idea to limit one thread per user and the ads would be kept in the user's signature as a hyperlink.

As for a subscribed threat pop-up feature, that could function similar to how some forums show new private messages. A window would pop up and tell you you have a new message from so-and-so. Likewise, a window would appear telling you that there is a new response by such-and-such in a thread you subscribed to. If you have multiple threats with new responses, it'd appear in that same window, perhaps with links so you can head to the thread that most interests you at the moment.

Yeah, right now the only way to see subscribed threads is the User CP, there isn't any other notification.

Also, threats

"Do not advertise your thead, or _____"? I can't think of anything for the blank.

As for the blank, I don't know either.

Oh, I thought you meant people would threaten each other over advertising.

That sounds like a good idea. Sigs are frequently spam anyway.
