During this upgrade, could and would you alter one item?
When we post to a thread, we are automatically set to "follow" that thread and therefore recieve email notifications for every new post made to that thread. Can you set it up so that we have to select to follow the thread if we desire, rather than automatically setting it to do so? I generally know which threads I am posting to that I want to follow up on and don't require the notifications coming to my normal email account. I would like to have the option of being able to set a thread as being followed because it is of high interest to me, but I don't want to follow each and every thread I post to all the time. Can this be adjusted so that we have to select "follow this thread" manually?
Yes, that is indeed possible with the new software . I do that very same thing myself on XenForo - I use the on-page alerts to notify my of replies, but instant e-mail notification to let me know of replies to important/urgent threads.
