"Subscribed" indicator

  1. apologies in advance for the boring suggestion... feeling so bored today perhaps i shld just shoot myself (joke joke!) but here it is:

    how about adding a new indicator - as a "measure of interest" proxy - against every thread: the number of subscribed members?

    I had that idea in the past but came to the conclusion that it was redundant because the number of replies/views are already adequate indicators of interest in a thread. I compared the number of subscribed users to the number of replies/views for a group of threads and found that all of those stats scale up at approximately the same rate.
  3. makes sense -- thanks Baron

    Can we subscribe to a particular individual's post whenever they post? I know you can subscribe to a thread but how about an individual. For example, I'd like to know when stonedinvestor or apex82 write something.
