    So, I saw this suggested in another thread that I will not be linking because what's discussed in it does not need to be discussed here. However, I see some threads that are asking for certain services or certain members that they aren't aware of their name, etc. An @SnakePliskin would bring up a notification, say in a PM or, on an part of BHW somewhere notifying me that a user mentioned my forum name within a thread.

    This would be a very convenient feature, though it might take a lot of work. I have experience with vbulletin but not with the amount of users that BHW has. Also, not implementing this particular feature. Though, I have seen other forums with it. The place with the '@notifications' could be a new tab on your profile, could actually be in the place that the reputation sent/received section that was in our settings panel, it could be inside of the actual notifications tab at the top when your logged in and could be under the "inbox" saying "mentions" or another term. These are just a few ideas.

    I know this isn't SocialHatWorld, but it would be a convenience to have it instead of having to search for said users profile and then linking it in a thread.

    It seems like many have been using the 'ex' system to send notifications, lolololol. Now that it's no more and necessitates having another similar system on board. Guys, better get used to using skype if you all are so dear friends and need to send frequent notifications to each others. :)

    Sometimes you will encounter members who have their inbox full and don't notice until they see a thread posted about it or they try to send a message.

    Who said anything about being 'dear friends' or frequently needing to speak to a single member. It's about all members. Not all members use skype. Not all members have their contact details open. I'm sure this idea would help out some of the BST sellers too.

    May be it's a great idea then ;), i.e. apart from having the time-tested PM system... text- and voice-enabled notification system -- it would be great for business on BHW. Yeah, why not? !! :)

    Is it not the users' responsibility to maintain space in their inbox, as they would with email or a physical mailbox?

    It would be convenient. I could be in another thread and say I wanted you to see something, I could post my reply and have @srb888 check this out. It's a cool idea.

    Indeed it is but sometimes sellers inboxs get full without them noticing. Some get so much to where they have 10 new PM's a day. I've seen them talk about it in the IRC. This could be in the 'ex systems' section of the settings panel.

    I guess some very popular members would get 1001+ spammmm notifications every minute also... :( Wouldn't that kill another 'useful' system as soon as it is born? What would be the solution to this phenomenon which is also a possibility?

    I don't think either you or Wiz or BigBuddy would be too happy if you/they get 10k notifications every day through this popup system...

    and what about the spam possibility through that system which would be lot easier than the present-day PM system (I added more about it in my prev post btw)??? Got any solutions?

    Well, it sounds like we at BHW are being expected to tolerate what amounts to people running out of gas on the freeway when they did not plan accordingly nor calculate.

    Would a larger inbox for jr vip+ or those who open a BST solve this issue?

    Before any ideas are thought of, unless, they have a mod approval option, the idea has room for abuse. Even now with the PM box spamming, itraders that are fake, and "thanks whoring". I don't think anyone would appreciate any type of spam directed towards their account. The idea would need a little tweaking, but still a good idea and can be implemented.


    Yeah, then we can add a webcam section and you can scroll through and find the hottest BHW members to sex cam with! :rockon:

    Webcam you said!!!! I am seeing many huge opportunities here for some old/new members!!!! :D It should be compulsory with the system so that we know exactly who is behind the great-looking girly account.

    That would probably solve that particular issue, yes. That isn't the only reason I suggested it though. I've seen about 5 threads opened of people looking for MeatHead1234 but they didn't know his name/wanted someone who could be a middle man between them and a website buyer. A member could have came inand said "You'd be looking for @Meathead1234". He'd be notified in some way and respond at his earliest convenience. Again, these are just ideas.

    True but in a more realistic direction.

    Nice idea but I expect some mods here to comment on it.

    They may, they may not. It may draw their attention if more members speak on the idea. It's a good suggestion. We could aybe have a vote on it or something? Someone else mentioned it in another thread too.
