    When someone quotes your post, can you maybe make it so you get a message or an alert or something?

    As far as I know, there isn't a way to get an alert when someone posts a reply with your text quoted. The only current solution I'm aware of is to use the built-in Subscriptions feature:
    You can setup your Subscription options to email you when someone replies to a post/thread you've made or have subscribed to, by clicking UserCP > Options > Default Thread Subscription Mode

    This won't email you updates when someone replies to only YOUR quoted post, but when someone replies to the thread in general. The only other solution I can think of would be to have a custom script built to have the server email you every time someone posted a reply with your {quote=userid} text, which, I'm guessing, is pretty difficult. If someone knows of a pre-built plugin that might do this, then I'm all ears.

    what if everyone automatically subscribed to a post when they respond in a thread.. And after like a couple days or so the subscription expires automatically?

    I'm just sick of talking on forums and then the guy who you are talking to responds once and never re-visits the thread again lol
