in thread Email notifications again

Yes, Newest Nodes will not help -- suppose I just noticed some thread and decided to look at it, but was unable to visit the site for a week or more. Is it too much work to create something similar to "root says You've got a reply to..." and display it in a separate nodelet?

    I suggest that you take a look at a discussion that took place less than a week ago on the same exact subject, that eventually provoked a response from the gods explaining (for the umpteenth time) (annoyedly this time) why such a system isn't in place, and the heavy demand it would place on already heavily taxed servers.

    The most recent thread on the subject started with: RFC: Subscription to nodes. The eventual response by tye was: Re^2: RFC: Subscription to nodes (really?). And an eventual possible workaround came from Limbic~Region with Working Node Tracker?. In the end, Limbic~Region's solution doesn't do exactly what you are asking, but it could be helpful nevertheless, as it provides an offsite tool for assisting you in tracking nodes and threads.

    But your question originally was, is there a way to subscribe to threads and be notified of their activity. The answer became a little convoluted, you asked for clarification, and to make it perfectly clear I presented an unconvoluted and factual answer: Re: Re: Re: Email notifications again.

    At any rate, check out those links I provided here. They really do tell the story better than I can.

[Corion]: I just found out that in $current_top_prior ity_project , the part I am in is not even in the top three worries. That's somewhat bad, not because I'm happy with being a top worry but because that means that I don't even know how bad the rest ...
[Corion]: ... of the situation is :-)
[marto]: it's good to know that things can always get worse :P
[hippo]: Ignorance can be bliss
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah - I'll just avoid the project lead :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, it helps with the perspective :-D
