We’re trying out a new feature at The Planet (we’re always evolving and adding functionality here) and we would really like your feedback on it.

The new feature (that is now available for you to test drive) is an option to receive an email notifying you that someone has replied to your comment. It shows the text of your comment, who replied and what their reply was.

To activate this feature on a comment, click the check box at the bottom of the “Leave Your Comment” box which is titled, “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail” before you click the Submit button.

BTW, we are simultaneously testing on the technical side to make sure it doesn’t cause any issues. If it does, even though it may be popular, we will have to go back to the drawing board.

So, please try it out first for a while then we invite you to return to this post and participate in the poll below to help us figure out if we should keep this feature and if so, how best to configure it. Thanks!!!

One itsy-bitsy suggestion, AdLib: for those of us who are sadly absent-minded, would it be possible to have an “opt-in” button by the “save” and “cancel” buttons when you’re editing an already submitted comment?

I like the idea, AdLib…some threads move fast and if you leave for a few days (as I am wont to do ;0) you’re liable to “miss” people.

…of course I forgot to click “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail.” (It’s probably better “automatic” in which case each individual could turn it “on” or “off”.)

Let me please campaign for email alerts to “all comments that I post.”
(Currently !0 votes vs 11 votes.) It’s easy to set up a separate folder for planet responses so that it doesn’t spam your regular inbox. It’s an extra step to click “let me know when someone replies.”

I vote for that. My allowed time sitting at a keyboard is limited, so it would be nice to be able to see what comments & replies I should deal with quick smart in a dedicated email folder. Other disabled users might also find that useful. 🙂

I vote for that.

I can’t just sit here refreshing the page. I got other things to do. Besides, during some discussions, the latest comments bar recycles between refreshes…

AdLib, again many thanks for the new feature, and hopefully the technical side is in favor of it too….

Hi Jenuwin!

This is a good feature IF I were not already inundated with email. But it’s nice to know if people are responding. It’s the best part of the Planet.

Hi to your significant others. Good to see you here.

Hi Choicelady!

Lovely to see you here too! Your right about getting too many emails..but then again, I don’t blog so much, so it is fun to see a reply in my inbox! Hope you are well!
